A new married man in the United Arab Emirates, 34 old, immediately filed for divorce after only a few days when he saw his wife without makeup, spending some time swimming at a beach in Sharjah. She had artificial eyelashes and cosmetic surgeries she had undergone before the marriage and even colored contact lenses. She looked very different. The husband said he could no longer recognize his wife.
The woman asked after help from a psychologist. However nothing changed in her relation. His husband accused her of misleading, considered she “tricked by her artificial beauty,” and not accepted any explications or excuses. He had self declared deceived. The couple had been engaged for six months before the wedding but the husband never knew the truth. It’s generally accepted that men value beauty in women. Men, more than women, rejected and reported less attraction toward potential mates with low physical attractiveness, in some speed dating experiments scientifically monitored. The findings are that men prioritize having moderate physical attractiveness, while women prioritize having moderate social status in a long-term mate. But real partners in a couple value also the truth in their communication and this is another big thing related to this story, even giving the key to understand it.
