Arab Ambassador Nixes Wedding As Things Get Ugly
Arab ambassador discovers bride is bearded and cross-eyed behind veil
An Arab ambassador has called off his wedding after discovering his wife-to-be who wears a face-covering veil is bearded and cross-eyed.
The envoy had only met the woman a few times, during which she had hidden her face behind a niqab, the Gulf News reported.
After the marriage contract was signed, the ambassador attempted to kiss his bride-to-be. It was only then that he discovered her facial hair and eyes.
The ambassador told an Islamic Sharia court in the United Arab Emirates he was tricked into the marriage as the woman's mother had shown his own mother pictures of her sister instead of his bride-to-be.
