20-year old divorces 80-year old man in 60 minutes

By Staff

An 80-year-old man was divorced by his young wife just after a hour of being married.

According to an 'Al Khaleej' report, the elderly man approached Ras Al Khaimah court to have his marriage solemnised to the 20-year-old Asian woman.

Initially the judge refused to approve of their union because the bride's guardian had not accompanied the couple. The court later certified the wedding when the elderly man brought the person concerned.

However, to the amusement of those in court and to the shock of the octagenarian bridegroom, the newly-wed girl returned to court within 60 minutes of she stepping into her husband's home requesting the same judge to grant her a divorce from the old man.

She refused to divulge reasons for her request. The judge sought the husband's conset and terminated the union and she returned the dowry to the elderly man.
