DUBAI - An Arab ambassador in Dubai has had his marriage annulled after discovering his new wife is cross-eyed and has a beard. The ambassador, who was not named, petitioned a court in the emirate for a divorce and compensation of 500,000 dirhams ($136,202) for money spend on gifts. The man only found out about his wife’s appearance after the couple had signed a marriage contract and the husband wanted to kiss his spouse.

The woman, a Gulf national, had worn a niqab each time they had met. "Every time the couple met, the bride would do her best not to reveal her entire face. He claimed to the sharia court officials that when he wanted to kiss his wife-to-be, he discovered that she was bearded and cross-eyed as well,” a source was quoted as saying.

The man accused his wife’s mother of deception by showing his mother a picture of the wife’s sister.
