The 34-year-old Arab groom divorced his 28-year-old bride, said the doctor, because the husband believed 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 Abdul Aziz 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.
Gulf News has learnt that the groom took his bride to Al Mamzar Beach for a leisurely 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.
The couple’s engagement lasted for six months.
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.
Power. Moves. Only.
In all seriousness, I guess things are different in the Middle East. I think they generally keep the men and women separated until marriage over there, so the guys aren't aware that there are some girls cake on makeup until they look like completely different people. Some men handle seeing a girl without makeup on in stride: these are the guys who have sisters or female friends. Some completely overreact, like this guy. I bet this guy is one of four boys, he's always been awkward around girls, and this was an arranged marriage where he never really knew the woman all that well.
How good can this woman be at applying makeup? If she's so ugly that you feel it's necessary to leave her after seeing her without makeup on, how much better can makeup make the situation? I feel like at most, makeup can bump you up 1.5 points looks wise. If you look completely different with makeup on, how much time and money are you wasting buying all of it and putting it on? This guy must be rich as fuck if he's confident he can easily find another woman worth marrying and spend all of that money on another wedding.
P.S. Here's a great joke you can tell to any girl that's guaranteed to get a laugh always*: Why do girls wear makeup and perfume? Because they're ugly and they smell bad!
*No girls have ever laughed when I told that joke. Mostly, they get mad and walk away.
