Notably, the incident took place in a village in Kulpahad tehsil, according to an IANS report. Both the bride and groom’s friends and relatives tried their best to convince her for marriage but she refused to change her decision. In fact, the matter got so serious that the panchayat was called in the middle of the night to intervene in the matter. The bride, however, held her ground and the groom and his relatives had no option but to go back.
When the bride was asked as to why she was not interested in marrying the man, she replied saying that she does not like him. The groom’s father said that if the bride was not willing to marry then why did she participate in other rituals of the wedding like the exchange of garlands.
Earlier, sources, said, all rituals had taken place smoothly. No sign of any tension or argument was reported on the day of the wedding as all attendees were seen in a happy mood.
As per the Hindu tradition, seven ‘pheras’ or rounds are taken around the fire by the bride and the groom together to complete the marriage rituals.
In another recent incident reported from Uttar Pradesh’s Auraiya district, halfway through the wedding, a bride called it off and refused to get married after her groom failed to read a Hindi newspaper she asked him to read. However, the groom didn’t fail to read the paper because he was illiterate or he had a problem reading Hindi. In fact, the reason for canceling the wedding was the groom’s weak eyesight, which was actually the reason for his failure in reading the paper. The bride reportedly asked the groom to read the paper without wearing his glasses.
