A bride in Uttar Pradesh has walked out of her wedding ceremony after her groom-to-be failed to solve a very simple math problem, police said Friday.

The bride tested the groom on his math skills and when he got the sum wrong, she walked out.

The question she asked: How much is 15 plus 6?

The incident took place late on Wednesday in Rasoolabad village near the industrial town of Kanpur, local police officer Rakesh Kumar said on Friday.

Poor education

The groom’s family tried persuading the bride to return, but she refused. She said the groom had misled them about his education.

“The groom’s family kept us in the dark about his poor education,” said Mohar Singh, the bride’s father. “Even a first standard student can answer this.”

Local police mediated between the families and both sides returned all the gifts and jewellery that had been exchanged before the wedding, Kumar said.

Another bold bride

Last month, another bride in Uttar Pradesh married a wedding guest after her groom-to-be had a seizure and collapsed at the wedding venue.

The groom’s family had not revealed that the groom was epileptic. While the groom was rushed to a hospital in Rampur town, the bride asked one of the wedding guests to step in and married him.
