‘Bearded, cross-eyed’ divorce case grips Dubai


An unnamed Arab ambassador has successfully had his marriage annulled after discovering that his veiled wife was bearded and cross-eyed.

The case has gripped the once-booming city-state of Dubai, where old and new world still meet jarringly.

According to the Gulf News, the ambassador told a Sharia court that he was unable to get a look at his future wife’s face until after they had been married. On the few occasions when they did meet, she wore a niqab, which covers all of the face except for a thin slit for the eyes.

The man claimed that his mother-in-law tricked him by showing him pictures of his future wife’s sister instead.

Once he and his future bride, a physician, signed their marriage contract, the man described how he had kissed his bride. Once she removed her covering, he found that she had a surfeit of facial hair that he described as a beard, and that her eyes were crossed.

The court agreed that the man was misled, granting him his divorce. But it also refused to refund him the 500,000 Dirhams ($145,550) he said he had spent on jewellery and gifts.

Can't comment on the lady's facial hair.

However, how easy is it to be an effective physician for a cross eyed person, surely a cross eyed lady would be very likely to make misdiagnosis and come to think of it, she'd prolly miss her patient all together as she'd be looking in the wrong direction?

There's got to be more to this than has been written, otherwise why would the groom have been refused return of the Mahr?


Wassalaam

And when My servants question thee concerning Me, then surely I am nigh. I answer the prayer of the suppliant when he crieth unto Me. So let them hear My call and let them trust in Me, in order that they may be led aright. Surah 2  Verse 186

as salaamu alaykum,

umm that's why you're supposed to see your potential spouse before marrying them!  There is a narration in which a man came to the Prophet saw and told him about his engagement to a woman, and he saw asked him, 'Have you seen her [face]?' He said no and so the Prophet saw told him to go and look at her!

crazy people in the world I tell ya  oldshaykh

salaam

Totally agree with you Sis Se7en. That is very well-known hadith, so you would think people would follow it, though also, in some families, make that the only thing before marriage, so that can also be a reason for things to turn out bad as well. Quite a strange story - yes, should be more to it, before we can really make a real conclusion.
