According to the Associated Press on Oct 11, the couple and their children had just spent a blissful honeymoon in France and was midway through driving back to their marital home in Berlin when the event occurred.
The man’s wife was napping in the back seat out of his view when they stopped at a gas station. The 33-year-old woman went to use the restroom while her husband pumped gas without telling him.
She ended up stuck at the gas station because her husband drove away before she left the restroom.
The Local revealed on Friday that when the man’s children tipped him off that his new wife was missing.
Police informed the man that his wife was still at the gas station, which meant he had to backtrack another two hours to retrieve her.
"My first reaction was ‘is he daft’? I had no money or telephone with me," the woman told radio station FFH according to the report.
After the initial anger wore off, the German bride forgave her husband and they started off back to Berlin again.
"I am not annoyed with my husband. He didn't do it on purpose," she said.
