JEDDAH — A Saudi man has divorced his wife soon after their marriage after he found that she was chatting with her friends on her mobile phone.
According to reports, after the wedding ceremony in the city of Jeddah, the recently married couple reached the hotel room where the bride started exchanging messages with her friends and did not acknowledge her husband’s presence.
The groom wanted to talk to her but she ignored him. When he asked her about the reasons, the bride said she was busy communicating with her friends who were congratulating her on their marriage on the mobile, Gulf News reported.
When the groom asked her as to who among the two was more important, she replied that her friends were important to her than him.
Enraged with her reply, the groom told the bride that he was divorcing her and left the hotel room in anger.
A divorce case has already been filed in the court, which has referred the case to a reconciliation committee. The groom, however, was too hurt in his pride to forgive and refused to withdraw the case and insisted on the divorce, the report said.
