A groom was arrested on charges of assault after breaking his bride’s skull during their wedding ceremony, police in Egypt said.

Cairo Police said that the groom – who punched his bride, fracturing the skull just after their wedding vows – told police that he did it to control his wife.

The unidentified groom said he took his wife into a room right after the wedding vows and hit her head three times, as his mother instructed him to do.

His mother allegedly said that this would help him control his wife throughout their married lives. The mother warned her son that her brothers are controlled by their wives because they do not beat them.

After hitting her once in the head, the wife slapped him back. That is when the groom took an iron rod and beat his wife until she fell unconscious.

Police arrested the man on charges of causing serious injury to his wife, who suffered fractures to her skull and pelvis. The woman was rushed to a hospital, where she is still laying unconscious in her wedding dress.
