‘I was shocked’: Man seeks divorce from wife after seeing her without makeup


He saw her face after their wedding and was so shocked to the extent that he had to file for divorce without wasting time. Here’s what happened;

An Egyptian man is divorcing his wife just one month after saying ‘I do’ when he saw her without makeup.

The man said he was shocked to see his barefaced wife the morning after their wedding, the Gulf Times said, quoting local media reports.

He filed a lawsuit at the family court.

“I was deceived by her as she used to apply heavy makeup before marriage.

“She looks ugly without makeup,” he told the court.

The man met his wife through Facebook where she often posted beautiful pictures of herself wearing full makeup.

He decided to marry her after meeting her several times but that soon changed after he learned about the transformative powers of makeup.

“But after the wedding I saw her real face without makeup,” the complainant told the court.

“I was shocked… as she looks nothing like the person I met several times before marriage.”

The man claims he was tricked which led him to end their union.

“I saw her pictures on Facebook, she looks totally different when she does not wear makeup,” he added.

“I was deceived and want to divorce her.”

This is among growing incidents of divorce across the world which happened after newly wed husbands saw their wives without makeup.
