Newlyweds Divorce Hours After Wedding Ceremony

A newlywed couple filed for a newly-divorce hours after they were married.

The New York Post reports that a woman spent her entire wedding night staring at her phone, texting, instead of paying attention to her big night. That can be stressful on a date over dinner, but a wedding? That’s gotta hurt.

The groom quickly realized that maybe this wasn’t the relationship he had hoped for. He filed for divorce hours after the wedding.

“When he asked her if her friends were more important than he was, the bride answered that they were,” a relative told a local newspaper. Maybe that answer would be fine any other day in a lifetime, but on a wedding day?

On average, marriages that end in divorce last about nine years. This one is certainly going to bring down that average.

After the soon-to-be-ex-bride said that her friends are, in fact, more important than her husband on their special day, the newly-married, future-divorced man stormed out of his hotel room and told his wife he was ending it.

Gulf News reports that a court tried to get the couple to work out their first fight as newlyweds and not just jump right into a divorce, but the husband was adamant. He was getting a divorce.

“Marriages are bound to fail when there are no robust foundations or trust,” Ahmad Al Maabi, a legal expert, said. “The approach to marriage without a deep appreciation of the responsibilities are among the major causes for divorce among young people.”

Perhaps young people should wait a little while longer before they go through with a wedding and vow to spend the rest of their lives together with one person. Maybe have an argument first — that might help.

According to, regarding couples who are between the ages of 20 and 25, wholly 60% of those marriages end in divorce.
