A groom in India, was left red faced in front of his family and friends after being dumped by his bride for being unable to answer a math question correctly.

Uttar Pradesh Police said that the incident unfolded on Wednesday.

The bride tested the groom’s mathematical skills by asking him to solve 15 plus 6? When he answered 17, she left. The groom’s family tried to convince the bride to come back, but she refused.

She said that her groom deceived her about his education. Bride’s father was very angry, saying that even a little child can answer a simple math question.

The police mediated between the two families, and both sides returned all the gifts and jewelry that had been exchanged before the wedding.

Most marriages in the country are arranged by the families of the bride and groom. Except for a brief meeting, the couple does not meet or hang out together.

Couples get to know one another after their weddings.
