BBC Radio Kent interview about bride's texting leading to quickie divorce

A husband has divorced his wife just hours after their wedding because she was too busy texting her friends to consummate the marriage.

The groom took his Saudi bride back to their hotel room after the ceremony in the city of Jeddah.

But when he tried to get intimate with her, he was pushed away by his wife because she was trying to respond to congratulatory messages from friends on her phone.

The argument became heated and the groom stormed out of the hotel, telling his wife that he wanted a divorce.

Pippa Binham of Nova Wedding Planning was interviewed by BBC Radio Kent to comment about the story and explain how planning a wedding can lead to tensions between the couple themselves.
