A groom filed for divorce from his bride on their wedding night because she was busy texting her friends instead of having sex with him. A relative said after the wedding ceremony the Saudi bride and groom went to their hotel room in Manama in Bahrain and when he tried to consummate their marriage, his wife decided to use that time to reply friends who had sent their congratulations.
The same relative said the groom asked her to stop texting she refused and became angry. He added:
“When he asked her if her friends were more important than he was, the bride answered that they were.”
During the heated argument between them, the groom told her he was divorcing her and left the hotel.
The relative said that the groom filed for a divorce, the case was filed and the court referred it to the reconciliation committee to see if the newly-weds could be reconciled. But the groom refused to withdraw the case insisting he was no longer in being married to the bride and that the divorce case should proceed.
