According to Masrawy, the woman said: “We had a traditional arranged marriage; I only knew him for two months before the wedding and never noticed how stingy he was.”

She was also quoted as saying 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 details, 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.
