In probably the fastest divorce case in Iraq’s Baghdad, a groom divorced his bride during their wedding for playing a ‘provocative’ Syrian song, local media reported.
Perhaps, the phrase “marriages are made in heaven” is not quite true anymore considering the increasing number of divorces among couples across the globe. But divorce in Iraq may be the fastest in history for a reason that is quite unusual.
According to the National News Centre, the Syrian song (Mesaytara – which translates to ‘I am dominant’ or ‘I will control you’) by the Syrian singer Lamis Kan was the main reason behind the couple’s divorce at the wedding hall.
The report also mentioned that the groom and his family considered the rhythm of ‘Mesaytara’, a provocation and were not happy. Soon after, the groom and his family entered into an argument with his bride and ended up divorcing her.
When translated, the first part of the song roughly says, “I am dominant; you will be governed by my strict instructions”.
“You are my lump of sugar; As long as you are with me, you will walk under my command; I am arrogant, I am arrogant,” the song goes on.
This is not the first time this particular song has caused newlyweds to get divorced in the Middle East. Last year, a Jordanian man broke up with his bride during their wedding celebrations after she played this song.
Divorcing over bizarre reasons
There are several cases of divorces on weird grounds. In fact, people divorce their significant others for bizarre reasons. As beautiful as marriage might be, sometimes, the experience can be quite bizarre.
