A groom who was dumped at the altar ended up marrying his bride’s younger sister.
After performing the traditional marriage rituals with no signs of trouble, a woman, 22, dumped her husband along with his 300 guests waiting to kick off the celebrations.
When the family finally realized that the bride will not show up for the arranged marriage, they tried calling her on her cellphone, but when she did not answer, the family called police for help.
During the investigation, the family discovered that the bride had been friends with another man in her neighborhood.
Police tried to track down the runaway bride, but after a while they became concerned that the two may have entered a suicide pact.
All the worries and anxieties disappeared later in the day, when the two returned as a married couple. The police said: “No charges can be filed as they are two adults who have decided to marry.”
The only problem that remained was the young abandoned man, who remained without a wife. However, since 90 percent of marriages in India are arranged the family quickly came up with a clever plan. The runaway bride’s younger sister was willing to marry the young man.
At least all the wedding guests did not have to go home empty-handed.
