A husband has divorced his wife just days after they tied the knot because he saw her without makeup for the first time.
The Arab bride, 28, was given the elbow by her former husband accused of deceiving him by using so many cosmetics and fake eyelashes.
The unidentified newlyweds went for a leisurely swim at Al Mamzar Beach in Dubai, but when the water washed away her makeup the 34-year-old man was said to have not been able to recognise her.
Dr Abdul Aziz Asaf, a consultant psychologist, has been working with the woman to help her overcome the divorce.
"The groom immediately divorced his bride and refused any attempt to reunite them again," he told Gulf News.
The couple had been engaged for six months before the wedding, and the doctor said the husband did not think his wife looked as pretty as before their special day.
The bride wore artificial eyelashes and had undergone cosmetic surgeries before the marriage, which she had intended to reveal to her partner.
