A couple may have had the shortest marriage in world history when they divorced three minutes after tying the knot.
The pair, from Kuwait, tied the knot at a local courthouse in front of their friends and family members, however an incident as they were leaving the courthouse saw them asking for an immediate annulment.
According to Q8 News, the newlywed bride tripped as the couple were making their way out of the venue, which resulted in her husband branding her “stupid”.
Despite having just signed their marriage contract minutes earlier, the furious woman then pleaded with the judge to put an end to the marriage immediately.
It’s often assumed that Millennials are more likely to get divorced, however a recent survey actually claimed the opposite finding that the generation, generally regarded as those born between 1981 and 1994, are better at staying married than “divorce-happy” Baby Boomers.
Just over 10 percent of people between the ages of 18 and 34 were found to be divorced, compared to more than a quarter of people over the age of 44, which is an increase of 10 per cent since 1980.
The shift can be mainly attributed to millennials who are going about matrimonial life differently to their predecessors, particularly Baby Boomers who experienced a surge in failed marriages in recent years.
The decline in divorces is most likely linked to the increasingly selective nature of marriage, and the couples who persist through cohabitation and enter marital unions have greater stability.
In Britain, a couple didn’t last much longer and got divorced after 90 minutes of marriage in 2004.
Groom, Scott McKie, and bride, Victoria Anderson, exchanged vows at Stockport Register Office in Greater Manchester, but a mere hour-and-a-half later the dream was over.
For undisclosed reasons the wife was angry when she heard her new spouse’s toast to her bridesmaids.
As a result, she hit him over the head with an ashtray at the reception and, when police were called, he head-butted one officer and punched another in the face.
He spent the night in a police cell while his former wife of 90 minutes celebrated her divorce by cancelling their Corfu honeymoon.
