Sisters fight 'pitched battle' over rich suitor

Man apologised and withdrew his marriage offer. (Sada)

Two Saudi sisters fought a “pitched battle” over a wealthy suitor after he was given the wrong name of the would-be bride by a female relative.

When the unnamed Saudi businessman met the girls’ father to seek marriage, he gave him the name of the younger girl, although he was targeting the elder sister.

'Sada' newspaper said that the little sister quickly agreed to marry the man when her father asked her, triggering a scuffle with her elder sister.

“They fought a pitched battle as both wanted to have that rich groom.

"The man later apologised to their father and withdrew his marriage offer,” it said without mentioning where in Saudi Arabia the incident took place.
