Well, this is pretty much the harshest thing we've ever heard. A man divorced his wife just days after their wedding when he was 'exposed' to her natural, makeup-free face for the first time. He said she "did not look as pretty as before the wedding". The story emerged after a psychologist named Dr Abdul Aziz Asaf told Gulf News he had counselled the 28-year-old woman in question, who was evidently devastated about what had happened.

The 34-year-old groom, from somewhere in the United Arab Emirates, apparently told his new wife he felt deceived after the pair went swimming at Al Mamzar beach in Sharjah, and he noticed her features had 'changed' when he saw her au naturel. He accused his bride of having worn too many cosmetics as well as fake eyelashes to make herself look 'prettier'.

The doctor had since been helping the woman to overcome the psychological damage as a result of the abrupt divorce.

The couple had been engaged for six months prior to their wedding, but it seems the shallow man had never seen his wife without make-up in that time. What a cruel way to react. We'd say she's had a lucky escape.
