Good story. Thank you.
A Dubai couple’s union is a serious contender for the title of shortest marriage in history, after the groom decided to divorce his bride less than 15 minutes after marrying her.
You may be wondering what on Earth could make a man to divorce his wife so fast. Well, in this case, the answer is money, more specifically the dowry payment he had agreed to pay the bride’s father. As per the contract the groom and his father-in-law had signed, the newly-married man agreed to pay the bride’s father 100,000 Dirhams ($27,224) in two installments – 50,000 Dirhams ($13,612) upon the signing of the marriage contract inside the Sharia office, and the other 50,000 Dirhams upon leaving the court building.
