Superficial Groom Sues Makeup-Free Bride For Not Waking Up Flawless Like Beyonce

Doesn't this sound like every woman's nightmare? One very charming gem of a groom is suing his bride after seeing her face without makeup for the first time.


According to a story in Emirates 247 the groom had only ever seen his wife in full makeup. This is in Algeria, where dating customs for some people are very strict. For all we know, this could have been an arraged marriage. At any rate, she wasn't pulling that trick of sleeping with your boyfriend at night and then jumping out of bed to refresh your makeup before he wakes up. (See: Bridesmaids move, Kristin Wiig's character.)

Anyway, according to a source speaking with Emirates, the groom told the judge that "he was deceived by her as she used to fill up her face with makeup before their marriage." What does that even mean, he was "deceived" by her? Did he think that was her natural look? Does he not even understand the whole point of makeup?

"He said she looked very beautiful and attractive before their marriage," the source continues, "but when he woke up in the morning and found that she had washed the makeup off her face, he was frightened as he thought she was a thief." Oh right! An unarmed woman robbing him with her dark under-eye circles and blemishes. She's that scary.

What a jerk. So many women are insecure about their beauty without makeup. For someone to actually deem a woman unacceptable while bare-faced, that's pretty low. And what makes him such a prize, anyway? Maybe he could use a bit of primer and foundation himself!

But the real kicker is that the groom is suing his bride for about $20,000 for "psychological suffering."

Honestly. WHO is experiencing the real psychological suffering? I'd say the bride is. I mean, what a friggin' idiot -- first of all, for not understanding how makeup works. But also for only caring about what he thinks he's entitled to and not about his wife's feelings.

I'm sure she's embarrassed and hurt -- and I hope their marriage is annulled because staying married to this guy is a fate no woman should face. But if she comes from a conservative background she'll be stigmatized, which is truly unfair. At the least I hope the judge throws out the lawsuit because that is some ridiculous malarkey.
