Snapchat ends Saudi marriage in just two hours
MANAMA: A Saudi marriage broke down in just two hours reportedly after bride shared her pictures with a friend on Snapchat, despite earlier pledge with the groom not to do so.
The Saudi bride and groom were said to have had a binding agreement not to share pictures over Snapchat of the ceremony.
But according to the bride’s brother the agreement was broken.
He told a website: ‘There was a prenuptial agreement between my sister and her fiancé that she would not use social-media applications such as Snapchat, Instagram or Twitter to post or send her pictures.
‘It was included in the marriage contract and became binding. Regretfully, my sister did not honour the pledge and used Snapchat to share pictures from the wedding ceremony with her female friends, resulting in the shocking decision by the groom to cancel their marriage and call for divorce.’
The bride’s family said that the agreement had been unfair while the groom’s relatives said he was within his rights to file for divorce. Even after two hours.
