Bride Walks Out Of Her Wedding Because Her Grooms Fails To Solve A Math Problem
Well, this bride walked out of her wedding mandap, when her groom-to-be failed in answering a question- a simple math problem.
A young bride in Rasoolabad village, near the industrial town of Kanpur, in northern Uttar Pradesh, left her wedding ceremony midway when her groom failed to answer a simple math question correctly.
What was the question that made her take this decision- how much is 15 plus 6? And, when the groom answered 17, the bride decided to call off the wedding.
The bride’s father, Mohar Singh said, “The groom's family kept us in the dark about his poor education. Even a first grader can answer this.” Well, the groom and his family tried their best to persuade the bride to return back, but she refused as she said that the groom had misled her about his education.
When matters between the two families got out of hand, the local police mediated. Both the sides were asked to return all the gifts and jewellery that had been exchanged in the wedding. And, the wedding was called off!
