She's A Man, Baby

This may or may not be an argument against arranged marriage (especially since that term is used to define a wide range of different arrangements) It is a pretty good argument for better due diligence...
An Arab ambassador has called off his wedding after discovering his wife-to-be who wears a face-covering veil is bearded and cross-eyed.

The envoy had only met the woman a few times, during which she had hidden her face behind a niqab, the Gulf News reported.

After the marriage contract was signed, the ambassador attempted to kiss his bride-to-be. It was only then that he discovered her facial hair and eyes.
(hat tip: Megan McArdle) Unfortunately, they don't identify the guy, which means we've unilaterally decided this is actually every single member of Iran's government. Yes, I know they're not Arabs, but that's beside the point.
