A 22-year-old kallah is seeking compensatory damages after being dumped by her chosson via an SMS text message to her mobile phone.
Yediot Achronot reports the two were scheduled to get married until they had an argument two weeks before the chupah, surrounding finances. They spoke on the phone following the dispute and then she sent him a text message saying “I do not wish to fight over money. Please let’s calm down for now” and she received a message back from the chosson “I took care of the problem. There won’t be any wedding”.
The kallah made numerous attempts to calm him down but to no avail. The wedding is off. The kallah has now decided to seek compensation for wedding plans, pain, suffering and whatever amounting to 250,000 NIS.
