The wedding took place two months ago.

It was a quick courtship for Yara Saad Al-Din, 23, and Aysar Ali, 31, who got engaged two weeks after meeting on an airplane, AlArabiya reported.

Did she not notice the smell before they married or is this a scam for her finances?

From the article:

I think it was truly about the stink.

From what I understand, the "Lil Nut Job" hasn't showered in decades.

This is the key here. If he makes her have to initiate, she loses rights to her dowry

Originally when the wife told her husband she wanted a divorce, he told her to keep her Hatsepshut or he’d smack her in the Cheops...
