A marriage in Saudi Arabia ended after two hours because the bride broke an agreement not to share pictures of the ceremony over Snapchat.

When the groom realized, that images of the wedding had been sent to female friends of his new wife, immediately filed for divorce.

Saudi press reported that, the agreement not to share pictures or video of the ceremony was apparently a binding one.


The bride’s brother told Saudi daily Okaz:


‘There was a prenuptial agreement between my sister and her fiancé that she would not use social-media applications such as Snapchat, Instagram or Twitter to post or send her pictures.

‘It was included in the marriage contract and became binding. Regretfully, my sister did not honour the pledge and used Snapchat to share pictures from the wedding ceremony with her female friends, resulting in the shocking decision by the groom to cancel their marriage and call for divorce.’
