Indian Bridegroom Dumped After He Fails Simple Math Test

By Robert Paul Reyes

"An Indian bride has walked out of her wedding after her bridegroom-to-be failed to solve a simple math problem, according to police in Uttar Pradesh.


The bride asked the groom to add 15 and six. When he replied 17, she called off the marriage.

Reports say the groom`s family tried to convince the bride to return, but she refused saying the man was illiterate.

Local police said they mediated between the families, and both sides returned all the gifts given before the wedding."


Most marriages in this god-forsaken country are arranged by the families, and it`s possible this couple hadn`t spent much time with each other.

Most women, in India or anywhere else in the world, don`t care if their boyfriends can`t add, as long as they make the big money.

If the bridegroom-to-be had answered, the answer is the same size as my manhood, or the answer is the same as I make per hour, the marriage would have gone on as planned.
