DUBAI: A Saudi man has come under fire for a seemingly over-the-top attempt to woo his angry wife, causing authorities in the region of Al Jouf to launch an investigation.
The man, who reportedly sought to reconcile with his wife, sneaked into the classroom where she works as a teacher and decorated it with declarations of love.
He placed a large cake in the room, scattered petals, balloons and banknotes on the floor and left a gold necklace and sweet treats on tables around the room.
Education authorities in the area of Al Jouf launched an investigation into the incident after a video of the room drew harsh criticism online.
“We support romance and romantic acts, but we do not tolerate the use of schools as a vehicle for messages of love,” one social media user said.
According to Gulf News, the probe was wrapped up on Thursday and concluded that the man was an employee in the security and safety department of the education district, a position which allowed him to gain access to the school after it had closed for the day.
