Ghaziabad, March 14:
A groom learnt the hard way just how important it is to bow before the bride so that she can garland him.
A bride here walked out a marriage on Friday night when the groom was playfully lifted a little too high beyond her reach during their marriage ceremony. The marriage was called off and the groom’s family ended up paying Rs.5 lakh to the bride’s side for arranging the marriage function.
Both the man and the woman, who would have been husband and wife, came to know each other while working in a multinational company in Pune and decided to tie the knot. The bride’s family lives in Ghaziabad while the groom hails from Pune in Maharashtra.
During the garlanding ceremony on Friday night, the friends of the groom lifted him too high due to which the bride could not garland him. She attempted to garland him thrice, and after that she refused to marry the man.
A confrontation between both sides followed and police had to intervene. The groom’s family paid an amount to the bride’s family for the expenses incurred.
“The case came to us but they resolved their issue mutually in the police station,” said police official Upendra Yadav. IANS
