An enraged husband fled a suit seeking to divorce his wife because she spent over Dh150,000 (about $40,000) to get her wedding dress.
According to reports, the man was believed to have proposed to the woman shortly after they met and before the wedding, he agreed to give her about $40,000 for all the expenses which included the wedding party, invitation cards and preparations.
However, after the wedding, the man was shocked to realize that his wife had a debt of between Dh150,000 and Dh200,000.
He learnt that the woman had borrowed money to pay for the party and confronted her. She admitted that she had spent the Dh150,000 that he gave to her on a white party dress and borrowed from relatives and friends to cover the expenses.
The case took a new turn when the people that gave her the money asked for their money and the woman requested that her husband should help her to repay the debt.
The man got so enraged that he simply approached a court and filed for a divorce.
