It’s believed to be the shortest marriage in history, the couple didn’t even make it out of the courthouse as husband and wife.

A couple got divorced just 180 seconds after being declared husband and wife after the groom mocked the bride as they were leaving their wedding ceremony. 

After the legal proceedings ended the couple turned to walk out of the courthouse, but the bride tripped over.

According to reports, the groom called her stupid for falling over.

 Q8 News claims the woman became extremely angry and demanded the judge end their marriage immediately. 

The judge agreed, and served an annulment just three minutes after he originally married them.

The couple, who live in Kuwait, never even left the courthouse as husband and wife.

It’s believed to be the shortest marriage in legal history.

One person wrote on Twitter : “A marriage with no respect is a failed one right from the beginning”

Another added: “If this is how he acts right at the beginning, it’s better to leave him.”

Other social media users accused her of immaturity and disrespect.

Since you’re here …

… we have a small favour to ask. More people are reading Al-Sahawat Times than ever but advertising revenues across the global media industry are falling fast. And unlike many news organisations, we haven’t put up a total paywall. We want to keep our journalism as open as we can. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. Al-Sahawat Times’ independent, investigative journalism takes a lot of time, money and hard work to produce. But we do it because we believe truly ethical media and an unbias perspective really matters.

“I appreciate there not being a paywall: it is more democratic for the media to be available for all and not a commodity to be purchased by a few. I’m happy to make a contribution so others with less means still have access to information.”

If everyone who reads our reporting, who likes it, helps fund it, the future of ethical media and the futures of our staff and their families would be much more secure. For as little as £1, you can support Al-Sahawat Times and it only takes a minute. Thank you.
