  • A man in Algeria wants $20,000 for psychological distress caused by seeing his new wife's face...

    A man in Algeria is suing his wife for fraud after he woke up the day after their wedding and saw her without make-up.

    Really? REALLY?!

    The obviously incredibly handsome, charming and generally wonderful groom was so shocked at his new wife’s appearance he swore in a court of law that he thought she was ‘a thief who came to steal his apartment’.

    Quoting a court source, a local Algerian newspaper reported: ‘He said he was deceived by her as she used to fill up her face with make up before their marriage.’

    ‘He said she looked very beautiful and attractive before marriage, but when he woke up in the morning and found that she had washed the make-up off her face, he was frightened as he thought she was a thief.’

    So, you want her to be very beautiful and attractive but if she uses make-up to achieve this that’s fraud? If this counts, we’ve got a few outstanding cases of our own relationship fraud we’d like settling:

    1.  That time Tom told us he ‘couldn’t wait’ to see us again but spent the next month dutifully ignoring every single text, phone call and WhatsApp message. Both ticks are blue, we know you’ve seen it.

    2.  When James boasted about being ‘best mates’ with Kit Harrington, when really he’d stood behind him once at Glastonbury.

    3.  When we spent more time than we’d like to admit telling ourselves that Dan was just nervous and it happens to lots of guys. No Dan, you were just crap.

    According to Emirates247, the utterly distraught man is seeking $20,000 (£12,800) for psychological suffering.
