The Arab Ambassador’s Bearded, Cross-eyed Bride!

Muslim men are keen to have their women cover themselves from head to foot, but it seems, this can backfire on them. An Ambassador in the United Arab Emirates (UAE) recently signed a contract to marry a woman he had only seen in a niqab or burka i.e., she was completely covered and veiled.

After the marriage contract was signed he went to kiss his bride to be and as the veil lifted, was astonished to see the woman was not only cross-eyed, but bearded as well. He made representation to a Sharia court to have the marriage contract annulled because he said the woman’s mother had shown his mother a picture of a sister and not the bride-to-be.

He claimed £85,000 compensation for all the gifts of jewellery etc. he had bought her. The court awarded him his annulment, but no compensation. Certainly an expensive lesson. It just goes to show you there is wisdom in the old maxim; ‘Never buy (marry) a pig in a poke!’

Things are never as bad as they seem….I think!
