Groom quits wedding to watch football match

By Staff

A Saudi bridegroom delayed his wedding to watch a football match, prompting the bride’s father to cancel the marriage.

The groom was to wed at his home in the Southern Baha town on Thursday but he told his bride’s family he wanted to delay the wedding to Friday for an urgent business.

The bride’s family later discovered that the groom had flown to the Western Red Sea port of Jeddah to watch a football match.

“After discovering the groom’s lie, the bride’s father decided to cancel the marriage and reject the groom on the grounds he is a liar and could not shoulder marital responsibilities,” the Arabic language daily 'Sada' said.
