But for one set of lovebirds, more than 24 hours in wedlock was simply not meant to be.

The man and woman from Baghdad recorded the fastest divorce in the country this month after the groom divorced his bride during their wedding.

Apparently, it was because she played a 'provocative' Syrian song, local media reports said.

'Mesaytara', which translates to 'I am dominant' or 'I will control you', was the name of the song that caused the couple's marriage to end in the wedding hall.

The song begins with these lyrics: "I am dominant; you will be ruled under my strict instructions."

And continues: "I will drive you crazy if you looked at other girls on the street

"Yes, I’m dominant.

"You’re my piece of sugar.

"As long as you’re with me, you’ll walk under my command.

'"’m arrogant, I’m arrogant."

The bride was reportedly boogying to the beat, which the groom and his family considered a provocation. The groom was said to have then got into an argument with his bride, before ending their relationship.

According to News18, this is not the first time the song has caused newlyweds to get divorced in the Middle East.

In 2021, a Jordanian man broke up with his bride during their wedding celebrations after she played it.
