Here's a good reason for a burka ban.....
What a lovely story....
An Arab ambassador escaped married life by a whisker.
The diplomat had his marriage instantly annulled after he tried to kiss his veiled bride and discovered she had a beard and was cross-eyed.
The unnamed groom had never seen the woman's face because she wore a niqab throughout their entire courtship, according to reports.
He freaked out after they signed the marriage contract in Dubai, canceled the reception and went right to an Islamic Sharia court.
He demanded the union be annulled, that $137,000 he'd spent on wedding gifts and expenses be returned, and the bride be examined for "hormonal deficiencies."
"He was absolutely horrified," said a wedding guest, according to London's Daily Mail.
"The bride had a nice personality, but there was a good reason why she was hiding her looks behind a veil.
"A divorce was inevitable, and the groom went straight to court, leaving his new bride in floods of tears."
The ambassador alleged that that his would-be mother-in-law had shown him pictures of his intended's sister to trick him into marrying the homelier woman.
"Every time the couple met, the bride would do her best not to reveal her entire face," a source close to the case told the local Gulf News this week.
