A man has divorced his wife days after getting married because he was “tricked by her artificial beauty”.
The Arab, 30, divorced his 24-year-old bride after he saw her without make up during their honeymoon.
The couple went swimming at Al Mamzar Beach in Sharjah when the man saw his wife's features drastically change after her make-up washed off in the sea, reported Aletihad, the Arabic-language sister newspaper of The National.
He also discovered she had undergone cosmetic operations and wore false eyelashes and coloured contact lenses.
The woman, who sought psychological counselling, said she was planning to tell her bridegroom but it was too late.
The husband could not be persuaded to reconsider the divorce.
