We all know that women use makeup, and look different without it, but this Algerian groom insists he was so traumatized by his newlywed wife’s absence of facial coverage that he is entitled to damages totaling $20,000.
According to Emirates 24/7, the husband woke up the day after his wedding and was frightened when he saw his wife barefaced so much, he thought it was an intruder trying to burglar his apartment, as he was unable to recognize her.
The husband filed his case in the court, citing substantial psychological suffering worthy of sizable compensation. In his words, he was deceived through seeing his bride’s attractive appearance prior to nuptials, and led to believe she looked different. Instead of a beautiful bride, in the morning he discovered in his room someone looking poles apart, so much that he even mistook her for a thief.
The unhappy groom took his frustrations to the court, hoping to find a compensation for his distress, and the case had been reported in local newspapers. It would be exciting to find out what the judge thought of the claims.
