All in the Family featured the curmudgeonly Archie Bunker. Archie was television’s most famous grouch, blunt, blustering, straightforward and untouched by the PC crowd. He was the archetype of the conservative male. Michael desprately tried to reeducate him, but he persisted in his breviloquence.

Looking back at the last 40 years, we realize: ARCHIE WAS RIGHT!

Groom sues bride for not looking pretty without make-up
"He said she looked very beautiful and attractive before marriage, but when he woke up in the morning and found that she had washed the make-up off her face, he was frightened as he thought she was a thief.
"The groom told court that he is demanding $20,000 damages for his psychological suffering.”
I'm trying to think of something to write, but I'm laughing too hard.  How bad was the wedding night that he's trying to go this route?

I guess that the whole making a women wear a veil thing can back fire on a guy.

    You might be on to something there regarding the wedding night. Seems like there might be some kind of dodgy issues going on here. A woman doesn't change that much without makeup. If she does, she has been putting it on with a trowel.

    Very possibly, she may not have been everything that was promised to him, like being a virgin. That would be my guess. The suit is just to get some salve for his male ego. I have to admit, this is a new and very inventive after event reasoning.

  2. The story happened in a Muslim country. This guy is either low on the social hierarchy and unable to dump the women outright, or he paid over $20,000 for her and now wants a refund based on what he actually got.

    I'd love to know what the real story is. Because, as they say, beauty is only a light switch away.

  3. I figured as much about the nation of origin. That was why I went with the virgin angle. In those countries, marriageable women are supposed to be untouched, and if he paid a bride price and the goods weren't exactly factory original, he is needing some face saving ego salve.

    Male embarrassment in these countries can be very expensive and costly, hence the honor killings. Since we kind of know how these cultures tend to think and view certain issues, I am betting she was not all that was promised. Problem for her now is, she has brought dishonor to her family and will probably pay the ultimate price.
