Man divorces ‘jinx’ bride after two days “Believes her eyes are harmful”

Saudi Arabia

A Saudi man divorced his wife just two days after their marriage as a series of bad incidents during their honeymoon persuaded him she is “jinxed”.

The groom and his bride had just gone into an apartment in the Western Red Sea port of Jeddah for their honeymoon when the curtain fell down.

After they went out and ordered dinner at a local restaurant, the waiter serving them fell down just after she wondered how he walked.


“When they returned to their apartment, the bride went to the mirror, held a perfume bottle and told her husband it was lovely.“Just as she said that, the bottle fell down and broke into pieces,” the Arabic language daily ‘Sada’ said.

“This incident was the last straw in the couple’s relationship as he was persuaded that she has harmful eyes. He decided to divorce her immediately.”

The paper said the man took his bride to her home in the nearby town of Taif on the next day and told her parents he had divorced her.

“He told them he was giving up the dowry and all wedding gifts.“He did not want to anger the bride as he thought she could hurt him with her eyes.”
