A Saudi bride and groom found their marital bliss almost immediately shattered when a disagreement over social media tore apart their marriage only two hours after the ceremony. Saudi newspaper Okaz reports that the groom had included a stipulation in the marriage contract that his bride would not share pictures of the wedding on Snapchat. (This guy sounds like a real catch.)
But the bride, like a true millennial, was unable to resist the lure of social media. Her brother told Okaz what happened next (translation by Metro):
There was a prenuptial agreement between my sister and her fiancé that she would not use social-media applications such as Snapchat, Instagram, or Twitter to post or send her pictures.
It was included in the marriage contract and became binding. Regretfully, my sister did not honor the pledge and used Snapchat to share pictures from the wedding ceremony with her female friends, resulting in the shocking decision by the groom to cancel their marriage and call for divorce.
This is a rare example of a story that could only happen in 2016, but also sounds like it happened in 1016. Let's hope this bride finds love again with a man who appreciates social networking, and let's hope this groom learns to chill the F out.
