Although the mother had seen Lamia’s photos a day to the wedding, she was disappointed when she finally met the latter in person.
Reacting to the same, Lamia noted that she was surprised by her fiancé’s mother’s action, adding that the wedding preparations had costed her a lot.
The disappointed bride who turns out to be an orphan said she met the groom four years ago.
Photos from the wedding showed the Tunisian couple looking dapper with Lamia rocking a snow white gown while the groom wore a black suit.
The story sparked reactions from netizens who sympathized with her and offered their support for the bride.

Onyinye Agbah: This is one of the reasons why God said to only the man “leave your father and mother and cleave to your wife” because God knows it’s something the average woman can handle but kai!
Oluamachi Olivia: I want to see the mother’s picture especially when she was young.
Sechang Mboli: No na, this shouldn’t be. There should be a law to protect this kind of situation.
