A husband divorced his wife hours after their wedding because she was too busy texting her friends and did not want to get intimate even after several approaches.
The groom took his Saudi bride back to their hotel room after the ceremony in the city of Jeddah.
But when he tried to get intimate with her, he was pushed away by his wife because she was trying to respond to congratulatory messages from friends on her phone.
‘When he asked her if her friends were more important than he was, the bride answered that they were.’
According to a Saudi legal expert, around 50 per cent of divorces involved newlyweds.
‘Marriages are bound to fail when there is no robust foundations or trust.’
