An unhappy groom told his bride he wanted a divorce as she lifted her veil to reveal her face for the first time.

The couple had not met before the arranged marriage, and were about to pose for pictures after walking down the aisle when it took a turn for the worse.

The husband jumped to his feet and yelled: “You are not the girl I imagined. I’m sorry –  but I divorce you.”

Unsurprisingly, the bride didn’t take it well. She is understood to have collapsed in hysterics. Wedding guests stepped in to try and resolve the situation, although what you can do or say to fix things after that, we’re not too sure.

It is the custom in some Middle Eastern countries, as this couple did in the town of Medinah, to agree to marry despite having never seen each other in person.

There was an immediate backlash against the groom, with one friend posting: “He caused her great pain through his irresponsible attitude, and he deserves to suffer.

“He should appreciate that beauty is in the character, not the face.”
