An Indian groom was dumped by his prospective wife at the altar because he failed a maths test. When asked by the bride-to-be to add up 15 and six, the unsuspecting man replied 17. This was the last straw for her and shewalked out of the wedding.
He added "But just before the marriage ceremony Lovely came to know that Ram Baran is illiterate and she refused to marry." And Mohar Singh said that the "groom's family had kept us in the dark about hispoor education."
"Even a first grader can answer this [the maths test]," he said.
Police were forced to mediate between the families and all of the gifts were returned.
Most Indian marriages are arranged by the families, with couple's often knowing little about each other before coming man and wife. Last month a bride married her wedding guest after her fiancee collapsed at the altar.
