Saudi groom divorces wife two hours after wedding



A groom in Saudi Arabia filed for divorce two hours after he married his bride when she shared wedding pictures on Snapchat.

The husband abruptly ended the marriage after the wife broke an agreement not to upload pictures from the ceremony, local media reported.

The quick divorce sparked a huge row between the families of the bride and groom with relatives arguing the deal was unfair.

The bride’s brother told Saudi daily Okaz: There was a prenuptial agreement between my sister and her fiancé that she would not use social-media applications such as Snapchat, Instagram or Twitter to post or send her pictures.

It was included in the marriage contract and became binding.

Regretfully, my sister did not honour the pledge and used Snapchat to share pictures from the wedding ceremony with her female friends, resulting in the shocking decision by the groom to cancel their marriage and call for divorce.
