Mon 31-10-2016

A Saudi man divorced his wife after just two hours of marriage because she posted photos to Snapchat.

The couple had an agreement not to share any pictures of the ceremony on the social sharing app.

But, when the groom discovered that his wife had sent images of the wedding to friends, he immediately filed for divorce.

The bride's bother told newspaper Okaz: "There was a prenuptial agreement between my sister and her fiance that she would not use social-media applications such as Snapchat, Instagram or Twitter to post or send her pictures."

He added: "It was included in the marriage contract and became binding."

"Regretfully, my sister did not honour the pledge and used Snapchat to share pictures from the wedding ceremony with her female friends, resulting in the shocking decision by the groom to cancel their marriage and call for divorce."
