An Algerian man recently sued his new bride for trauma after he caught a glimpse of her without makeup.
The unnamed couple had just gotten married and spent the night together when the man saw his wife without makeup for the first time, according to Mirror.co.uk. He was apparently so shocked by the difference that he refused to believe the woman next to him was his wife.
Instead, the man believed the woman was a thief.
When the man finally realized the woman was his new bride, he decided to sue her for fraud and “psychological suffering.”
“He said he was deceived by her as she used to fill up her face with make up before their marriage,” one source told Emirates 247. “He said she looked very beautiful and attractive before marriage.”
The groom is reportedly demanding $20,000 for the trauma caused by his wife’s naked face.
Shockingly, this seems to not be an entirely uncommon practice. In 2012, China man Jian Feng successfully sued his wife for $120,000 when their daughter was born “very ugly,” according to Elite Daily. Feng later discovered that his wife had altered her appearance prior to their marriage with extensive plastic surgery.
