UAE: Diplomat dumps burqa-clad fiancée due to crossed-eyes, beard

Expectations and reality are seldom the same.

“The bride had a nice personality, but…”

An unnamed Arab nation’s ambassador to the United Arab Emirates has successfully annulled his marriage contract to an unidentified woman on the grounds that her parents deceived him into believing she was a much more attractive woman.

The Daily Mail (of London) reports that as soon as the marriage contract was signed, the woman finally lifted the veil on her burqa and revealed her face for the couple’s first kiss.

It was then that the anonymous ambassador was “absolutely horrified” to see his bride-to-be was not only cross-eyed, but was also sporting a beard.

But She Has A Great…

According to a would-be wedding guest who witnessed the whole sordid scene:

The bride had a nice personality, but there was a good reason why she was hiding her looks behind a veil.

A divorce was inevitable, and the groom went straight to court leaving his new bride in floods of tears.

Appearing before a Sharia’a Law court in the UAE capital of Dubai, the lovelorn legate claimed “the woman’s parents sent his own mother and and father pictures of her far more attractive sister.”

An unnamed Dubai legal source stated:

Every time the couple met, the bride would do her best hide her entire face.

The woman, who is a physician, was very keen to marry him, as she had had very few suitors, even though she’s well into her 30s.

Maybe She’s Just Ugly…

The same nameless source stated:

The ambassador’s legal team also made an application for the woman to be examined for hormonal deficiencies, but when she went to see a doctor nothing out of order was found.

She’s devastated by the entire experience.
