Arab Groom Removes Bride’s Veil to Find She Has Beard


muslimsAn Arab groom received a shock when he removed his bride’s veil on their wedding day – to find she had a beard. The diplomat had his marriage instantly annulled after he discovered she had a beard and was cross-eyed. The unnamed groom had never seen the woman’s face because she wore a niqab throughout their entire courtship, according to reports.

He freaked out after they signed the marriage contract in Dubai, canceled the reception and went right to an Islamic Sharia court.

He demanded the union be annulled, that $137,000 he’d spent on wedding gifts and expenses be returned, and the bride be examined for “hormonal deficiencies.”

“He was absolutely horrified,” said a wedding guest, according to London’s Daily Mail.

“The bride had a nice personality, but there was a good reason why she was hiding her looks behind a veil.

“A divorce was inevitable, and the groom went straight to court, leaving his new bride in floods of tears.”

The ambassador alleged that that his would-be mother-in-law had shown him pictures of his intended’s sister to trick him into marrying the woman.

“Every time the couple met, the bride would do her best not to reveal her entire face,” a source close to the case told the local Gulf News this week.

The court granted the annulment but did not approve compensation.

A doctor who examined the jilted bride, who is also a doctor, did not find any medical reason for her facial hair.

The report did not identify the ambassador nor give any further details.

  4. According to :

    A bearded lady or bearded woman is a woman who has a visible beard. These women have long been a phenomenon of legend, curiosity, ridicule, and more recently, political statement and fashion statement.

    A small number of women are able to grow enough facial hair to have a beard, usually if they use anabolic steroids. Cultural pressure leads most to remove it, as it may be viewed as a social stigma. Notable exceptions were the famous (and usually fake) bearded women of the circus sideshows of the 19th and early 20th centuries, before so-called freak shows became unpopular.

    Mujer Barbuda – copy of Ribera (1631)The current Guinness World Record holder is Vivian Wheeler; in 2000, her beard was 11 inches (28 cm) long.

    Some contemporary feminist women, wishing to question the boundaries of social norms, have not removed visible facial hair as a political statement.

    In some cases, female beard growth is the result of a hormonal imbalance (usually androgen excess), or a rare genetic disorder known as hypertrichosis.
