This is not the honeymoon night any groom expects.

A Saudi newlywed demanded a divorce from his new bride hours after they tied the knot because, he said, she was too busy texting her friends to consummate the marriage.

“Following the marriage ceremony, the groom took his bride to the hotel where they had booked a room,” a relative told Saudi news organization Al Watan.

“However, as soon as the bride was in the room, she kept using her mobile. Her groom tried to get closer with her and become more intimate, but he was shocked when she ignored him, not responding to his words and action,” the relative said. “When he asked her about the reasons, she answered she was busy communicating with her friends who were congratulating her on her marriage on the mobile. The groom asked her to delay the messages, but she refused and became angry. When he asked her if her friends were more important than he was, the bride answered that they were.”

The case was referred to a reconciliation committee but the husband insisted on the divorce, Gulf News reported.

“Misunderstandings, differences in views and the easy approach to marriage without a deep appreciation of the responsibilities are among the major causes for divorce among young people,” Saudi legal expert Ahmad Al Maabi told Al Watan. “Marriages are bound to fail when there are no robust foundations or trust.”

Maybe they should’ve tried sexting.
