RIYADH: An newly wed Egyptian woman has decided to part ways with her husband because he refused to buy her a shawarma.
The couple had married only 40 days ago.
According to the woman, she has decided to take divorce from her husband because he is very stingy.
Sameeha returned to her family and instantly filed a divorce at an Egyptian court.
The court is expected to announce the verdict in coming weeks.
Egyptian news outlet Masrawy quoted the woman saying as: “We had a traditional arranged marriage; I only knew him for two months before the wedding and never noticed how stingy he was.”
She also added that “During the first week of our marriage, he told me that he hates going out anywhere because that would be a waste of money.”
According to the website, the husband had refused to buy her a shawarma wrap as he already bought juice for her. On forcing him to get shawarma, he accused Sameeha of exploiting his wealth.
