Woman Divorces Husband Three Minutes After Marriage

There are certain records you wouldn’t like to be associated with. This is probably one of them.

A newly-wed couple in Kuwait recently made history for having the shortest marriage in the country’s existence. They decided to go call it quits only three minutes after getting married.

The media in Kuwaiti, last month, reported the bizarre case of a couple who ended their marriage before even leaving the courthouse they got married in. The two had just signed their marriage contract in front of a judge and were walking out of the courthouse when the bride accidentally tripped. Instead of helping her up, the groom reportedly insulted his wife by calling her “stupid” for slipping. That was apparently too much for the woman to bear, so she turned around and asked the judge to dissolve their marriage on the spot. They had been married for only three minutes.

According to Q8 News, this was the fastest divorce in the history of Kuwait, and probably of the whole world.

The news of this record-breaking divorce went viral on Twitter last week, with most commenters joking and ridiculing the couple for wasting the judge’s time. Some, however, took the bride’s side, saying that she made the right call. If the groom insulted her so early into their marriage, who knows what he would have done later on, one person wrote.

“If this is how he acts right at the beginning, it’s better to leave him,” one Twitter user commented.

“A marriage with no respect, is a failed one right from the beginning,” another one added.

Some suspected that the bride was simply looking for an excuse for the quick divorce, which isn’t that far-fetched considering Kuwait’s problem with “interest-driven marriages”.

According to an article in the Arab Times, the loans and financial assistance provided by the state to newly-married couples has caused the divorce rate in the Middle-Eastern country to skyrocket in recent years.

Many young people tie the knot only to benefit from the state’s incentives, and then quickly file for divorce. It’s obviously not the only reported cause for divorce in Kuwait, but it’s definitely one of the most worrying ones.
