This weekend, a terrible husband saved his future wife from having to put up with his terrible disposition and generally awful personality.

On his wedding day in a western city in Saudi Arabia, a rude man decided to divorce his bride after seeing her face for the first time. The couple was marrying sight-unseen, which posed an immediate problem. When the bride lifted her veil during wedding photos, the groom reportedly leapt to his feet, and spat out a series of curt phrases: "You are not the girl I want to marry. You are not the one I had imagined. I am sorry, but I divorce you." At least this was a snap judgment that resulted in one woman dodging a swiftly moving asshole-bullet.
