Reports said the groom already arrived in the wedding hall and ready to do the wedding procession. However, the bride doubted his educational qualification so she asked a basic math test. 

The bride asked the groom to add 15 and six. When he replied 17, she called off the marriage. After which, she asked him again to recite the two times table before they could exchange garlands. He failed to recite it so the woman walked out from the wedding.

Meanwhile, the groom’s family tried to convince the bride but refused as she said the man was illiterate.

Panwari Station House Officer, Vinod Kumar, said it was an arranged marriage and the groom hailed from Dhawar village of Mahoba district.

“The groom’s family had kept us in the dark about his education. He may not even have gone to school,” the bride’s cousin said. “The groom’s family had cheated us. But my brave sister walked out without fearing social taboo.”

Nevertheless, the police didn’t lodge a case after both parties struck a compromise on the intervention of prominent citizens of the village. The bride and groom’s families just have to return the gifts and jewelry.
