After being engaged for six months, an Arab couple got married only for the groom to dump his bride few days later after he saw her with no make-up for the first time, said a psychologist who counselled the unidentified woman.
According to Dr. Abdul Aziz Asaf, the 34-year-old Arab groom divorced his 28-year-old bride because she did not look as pretty as before the wedding and accused her of deceiving him by using so many cosmetics, including fake eyelashes.
Dr Asaf, consultant psychologist, told Gulf News that his clinic received a request from the woman to help her overcome her psychological suffering after her divorce.
Dr Asaf did not reveal the woman’s identity for reasons of confidentiality.
The groom had taken his bride to Al Mamzar Beach for a swim but the outing turned tragic when her face became wet and her makeup reportedly washed away.
The groom said he could not recognise his wife after the make-up was gone.
The bride wore artificial eyelashes and had undergone cosmetic surgeries before the marriage.
Dr Asaf said the bride told him that she intended to tell her husband the truth about her but it was too late.
“The groom immediately divorced his bride and refused any attempt to reunite them again,” Dr Asaf said.
