A man divorced his wife after she requested and danced to a song at their wedding and caused a huge family row, it has been reported.
The couple has set a new record for the shortest marriage after calling it quits following an argument during their celebrations in Baghdad.
According to local reports, the woman requested the Syrian song Mesaytara by Lamis Kan. The title translates to I am dominant or I will control you.
The song begins with the lyrics: “I am dominant; you will be ruled under my strict instructions, I will drive you crazy if you looked at other girls on the street.
“Yes, I’m dominant, you’re my piece of sugar. As long as you’re with me, you’ll walk under my command.”
The bride was reportedly dancing to the song and enjoying her wedding, but the groom’s family were not impressed resulting in a huge row between the two families.
And it’s not the first time this has happened, and the song lead to another divorce in Jordan last year.
The speedy divorce is far from the first bit of wedding drama this week, and one groom ended up banning her sister from his big day after a cruel prank.
Writing to Slate’s Dear Prudence agony aunt column, the unnamed partner recounted how, while at the party, the 20-year-old sister announced that she had brought along “a special surprise guest”.
She then proceeded to wheel in “a skeleton dressed up in a sister of the bride’ t-shirt”, the ‘joke’ here is that the bride-to-be’s younger sister died when she was just 16.
The anonymous writer of the letter has been left understandably incensed by their sister’s heartless ‘surprise’ and currently isn’t on speaking terms with her, remarking “I don’t know what you could even say”.
Although their sister has never particularly liked their fiancée, they “still can’t believe she did something so theatrically cruel”.
Unfortunately, the rest of their family now want the writer to back down, explaining away her actions as being those of a “dumb kid” who “overstepped the mark” while trying to be “edgy”. The sister, who the family claim is very sorry about the whole thing, hasn’t communicated anything other than to tell t
their sibling to “get over it, it wasn’t like it was ‘dead sister’s ACTUAL skeleton”.
However, the furious partner feels they just “can’t just sweep it under the rug” and has decided to stand firm with their position. Now, their side of the family won’t be attending the wedding and their fiancée has asked them to just “give in to keep the peace”.
They wrote: “She says that it’s not worth causing so much disruption over a stupid prank that went wrong. Except it wasn’t a prank! No one would consider that funny and genuinely expect people to laugh”.
Going forward, the letter writer just isn’t sure what to do next, feeling as though they’re the one in the right and yet nobody else agrees.
Asking the advice columnist whether they were the real ‘bad guy’ in this situation, the aghast sibling expressed disbelief and frustration that their sister hadn’t even been made to apologise.
