Sharia Court Grants Annulment to Arab Ambassador After Veiled Wife Turns Out To Have Facial Hair and Crossed Eyes

In Dubai, an Arab ambassador was given an annulment by a Sharia court from a woman who he claims used a niqab to hide her crossed eyes and facial hair. He claims to have only met the woman a few times before their marriage and she always wore a veil. He accused her mother of showing him a picture of her sister to induce the marriage. He also asked, as an alternative if the divorce was not granted, that the court to order her to undergo hormonal treatments for her “beard.”

The ambassador is left unidentified beyond his holding the title “minister plenipotentiary.”

After they signed their marriage contract, the ambassador went to kiss his new wife and saw her face for the first time. He has sued for the contract to be annulled and demanded the woman pay him 500,000 dirhams (£85,000) for clothes, jewelry and other gifts that he had bought for her.

The court annulled the contract but rejected the ambassador’s demand for compensation. During the course of the litigation, the Sharia court referred the bride to a specialist on hormonal problems. The specialist found that she did not have a hormonal problem. The woman is a physician who was allowed to keep the gifts.

  1. Ecookie,

    Well thank you. I used to be a great at verbalization until life got the better part of me. Then it was almost 15 months then another major blow came about. Oh well, that is history. Thank you.

    “By Mohammed’s beard what the hell is “Truecoat” and why did I pay 500 goats for it???

  3. No Cookie, I won’t say well educated even. Just a lot of college. The Spanish I had to pick up as a survival skill. I guess it would be like living in Montreal and not knowing French.

    I am a Texas Democrat. I am an old school democrat socially liberal and fiscally conservative. And I’ll define it this way. I don’t care what you do with your own sheep. But once you start feeling guilty about it, DO NOT Expect me to help pay for your counseling you sick B*&^%$#d….

  4. So you’ve been masquerading as a Texan, but you’re really French. It figures – you’re such a socialist!

  5. Il fait très froid ici, pas de neige aujourd’hui. La météo a dit qu’il serait ce soir, la neige. Damn froid cependant
