A newlywed bride in the United Arab Emirates (UAE) got herself into trouble after borrowing from neighbours after spending frivolously on her wedding dress.
Man divorces wife for spending $40,000 on wedding dress
Her husband had filed for divorce after realising she spent about $40,000 on her wedding dress instead of using the money to pay for their wedding party
Her husband had filed for divorce after realising she spent about $40,000 on her wedding dress instead of using the money to pay for their wedding party.
The man who proposed to her shortly after they became acquainted, agreed to pay $40,000 (upto Dh150,000) to spend on the wedding party and its preparations and invitation cards.
But after the wedding had ended, the man realised his new wife had a debt of between Dh150,000 and Dh200,000 which she had borrowed to pay for the party.
The bride later confessed after she was confronted by her husband. A confession which made her husband very angry, filing for divorce before a Sharia Court.
“The wife was exposed when her lenders asked her to repay the money … the woman had to divulge the bitter truth and she asked him [her husband] to repay her debt as well,” The Gulf News reports.
The man was granted a divorce.
