Indian wedding

A bride in India recently cancelled her upcoming nuptials after her husband-to-be failed a simple maths equation. The woman revealed that she did not want to get married to a man who didn’t know basic maths.

In the shocking moment, the groom got all dressed up and arrived at the wedding venue thinking that he would be walking down the aisle and starting a new chapter of his life with a woman in an arranged marriage. However, when the bride grew suspicious of his educational qualifications, she asked him to recite the two times table before the garlands could be exchanged.

After the groom failed to correctly recite the table, the woman pulled the plug on the entire marriage.

According to Panwari Station House Officer, Vinod Kumar, the union was an arranged marriage and the groom hailed from Dhawar village of Mahoba district.

Members of the two families and several villagers were shocked to find out that the bride had called the wedding off after they had gathered at the marriage venue. “Just as the wedding was about to be solemnized, the bride walked out of the mandap, saying she cannot marry a person, who does not know the basics of mathematics. Friends and relatives failed to convince the bride,” a source close to the bride dished.

Additionally, the bride's cousin said that the family was shocked to discover that the groom was uneducated and that this was not brought to their attention prior to the decision to move forward with the marriage.

"The groom's family had kept us in the dark about his education. He may not have even gone to school. The groom's family had cheated us. But my brave sister walked out without fearing social taboo," the bride’s cousin said.

After tense discussions with elders in the village, a police case was not lodged and it was decided that both the bride and groom's families would return the gifts and jewellery gifted to them on the day.
