An Algerian man who saw his newlywed wife for the first time without make up sued her the day after they married, according to reports.
The man was shocked when he saw his wife in bed not made up, claiming he suffered trauma and shock.
When he saw her first thing in the morning, he refused to believed it was her and feared she was a thief.
As he realised it was his wife, the man decided to allegedly sue her for fraud and “psychological suffering”.
A source told Emirates 24/7: “The groom told the judge that he could not recognise his wife after she washed the make-up off her face.
“He said he was deceived by her as she used to fill up her face with make up before their marriage,” the papers said, quoting a court source.
“He said she looked very beautiful and attractive before marriage, but when he woke up in the morning and found that she had washed the make-up off her face, he was frightened as he thought she was a thief.
“The groom told court that he is demanding $20,000 damages for his psychological suffering.”
