A marriage ceremony in India ended in a most unconventional of ways: the bride tested the groom’s math skills, and he failed, police confirmed.
The groom-to-be was allegedly asked what 15 plus six is, to which he incorrectly answered 17.
The bride then left, and despite all the best efforts of the groom’s family to coax her into returning, she refused. She said she has been misled regarding the groom’s education.
“The groom’s family kept us in the dark about his poor education,” the bride’s father, Mohar Singh, said.
“Even a first grader can answer this.”
Rakesh Kumar, a local police officer in the area where the incident took place, confirmed that all jewellery and gifts exchanged before the wedding had been returned by both sides following mediation by the police.
