An Algerian groom took his bride to court accusing her of not looking as pretty as before the wedding. He claimed that he was tricked into marrying her by her use of make-up. Wow. You wait till he finds out about that Wonder Bra.
He's seeking $20,000 damages. He thinks he deserves money for that? She should counter-sue claiming he never let her know he was a total dick before the wedding, and go for $40,000.
Firstly, who's to say someone is ugly? Secondly, sleeping with an ugly person doesn't earn you $20,000. It earns you £200, as we now know from the Lord Sewel story.
The groom in this case said he was shocked when he got up the morning after his wedding and found that his wife looked so different, that he could not recognise her. *Insert old school joke about that normally taking a few years*
Newspapers in the North African Arab country said the groom swore in court that he even mistook his wife for a “thief who came to steal his apartment".
And this is the only part of the story where we can think a little more of the man. He's being a total knob and is acting in a rude and bullying way. But at least when he thought his other half was a burglar he didn't shoot her in the toilet.
