The couple was sitting in a hotel room following their ceremony in Jeddah when the bride got busy with her phone, responding to congratulatory messages from her friends rather than paying attention to her new mate, Saudi media reported.
“The groom tried to get closer with her and more intimate, but he was shocked when she ignored him, not responding to his words or action,” a relative told Al Watan, a daily newspaper in Saudi. “When he asked her if her friends were more important than he was, the bride answered that they were.”
Her response infuriated her husband, who walked out on his wife and said he was ending their short union.
A local court tried to patch things up for the newlyweds, recommending that they try to reconcile, but the unsatisfied man wouldn’t budge on his divorce demand, according to Gulf News.
