A groom in Saudi Arabia filed for a divorce on the night of his wedding after he was given a memory stick of intimate pictures featuring his wife and her former lover.
Before the wedding, the spurned lover allegedly asked the bride to be in a relationship with him. Instead, she refused and argued that she wanted to start a new life, become a mother and raise a family. Unable to take the rejection, her ex-lover released the pictures to the groom, transporting them secretly through a bouquet of flowers.
The unidentified couple was celebrating their vows at a hotel when the groom opened the contents of the device. He then decided to divorce his wife on the spot, according to religious preacher Sheikh Ghazi Bin Abdul Aziz al-Shammari.
“The groom came to see me the next day and he was under strong emotional trauma,” Sheikh al-Shammari said. “It was truly the shock of his life and he could not bear the scandal.”
Sheikh al-Shammari, who is from Saudi Arabia, did not reveal the nationalities of the bride and groom or the location of the event.
Last April, a Saudi bride also filed for divorce on her wedding night after finding out that her husband had lost nearly $300,000 in the stock market. The shock of losing his wife, home and fortune in the same night was so severe that he was taken to a hospital for treatment.
