According to Indian Express, the couple had had an arranged marriage and she hardly knew her husband before agreeing to marry him.

In a Khaleej Times report, the woman has been identified as Sameeha. In the short span of her marriage, she soon realised that her husband was very stingy. She said,

“We had a traditional arranged marriage, I only knew him for two months before the wedding and never noticed how stingy he was.”

During the first week of their marriage he told her that he hated going out anywhere as it is a waste of money. During those forty days Sameeha urged her husband to take her out somewhere as they hadn’t been out as a married couple anywhere.

He finally took her out and she asked him to buy her a shawarma roll. However, he refused. The man reasoned that he had already bought her a juice and that’s all she would get. When she forced him to buy it for her he even accused her of exploiting his wealth.

Sameeha returned to her family after the spat and immediately filed for a divorce. The case is now in an Egyptian court and is expected to wrap up in the coming weeks.

So I guess the wedding vows were, to have and to hold, for better or for worse, for richer or for poorer, in sickness and in health but till the shawarma do us apart!
