Bridezilla (center) in happier days.
Dr. Ali Kosar, who teaches at a private university
and who has won the TUBITAK (Turkish Scientific
Institute) scientific prize, filed a divorce suit against
his wife of one month Gulum Kosar. Kosar's father,
Ibrahim Kosar, took the stand as a witness.
Gulum's father-in-law testified as follows: "she moved
the henna party date to another date without telling us
so we couldn't go. I sent the bride and groom off to a
honeymoon but they went into the hotel early. Because
the room wasn't ready my daughter-in-law made a scene.
She called me and said 'how could you make a reservation
like this?!'. In fact, she locked herself in the bathroom."
"One night my wife took ill and I tried to reach my son
but I couldn't. So I called my daughter-in-law three times
and she hung up on me each time. Then she told my son
that I was harassing her on the telephone."
