Moral of the story: Always check under the niqab before committing:
An Arab ambassador called for an instant divorce after discovering his veil-wearing fiancÃ©e had a beard and was cross-eyed, it emerged today.
The would-be bride had hidden her face behind a Muslim niqab throughout their short courtship, meaning the diplomat had no idea what she looked like.
But as soon as the marriage was contract was signed in Dubai, in the United Arab Emirates, he tried to kiss her, before coming face-to-face with her hairy face and strange squint.
â€˜He was absolutely horrified,â€™ said a wedding guest.
“The bride had a nice personality, but there was a good reason why she was hiding her looks behind a veil.”
The ol’ “good personality” thing should have been a dead giveaway, but you’d think the woman would have at least shaved before the wedding — if she was even able. From her description it sounds more like the guy married a billy goat with strabismus… and a good personality of course.
