The case of a Kuwaiti couple who got divorced just minutes after getting married went viral on Twitter after the groom called his bride "dumb" for slipping
The newly married couple parted ways and walked out of the court just after signing their marriage contract, reports Step Feed.
The bride got annoyed after the groom ridiculed her for tripping while walking out of the courtroom. Instead of helping her when the bride tripped, the man called her "stupid" for slipping.
Outraged by his behaviour on their wedding day, the woman marched right into the courtroom and demanded a divorce.
Now called "the quickest divorce in Kuwait," the case went viral on Twitter shortly after being reported.
Many Twitter users displayed their shock over this unusual case, while others ridiculed it with some extra humour.

Some thought that the newlywed woman was after an excuse to get a divorce,
Divorce rates are on the rise across the Gulf region.
Divorce rates are relatively high in recent years and 2019 isn't changing anything.
Kuwait ranked 2nd in the Arab world when it comes to soaring divorce rates, according to a survey.
In 2017, statistics released by Kuwait's Ministry of Justice showed that around 60 per cent of marriages in the country ended in divorce.
The main reason for divorce includes "interest-driven marriages" which indicates that many newlyweds only get married for the financial assistance they get from the state.
