In India, most marriages are arranged. Bride and groom only meet briefly before the ceremony.

This bride solved the problem. Or rather, offered it. At the wedding, she asked the groom to solve a simple math problem. 15 + 6 = ?

The groom answered 17. The bride walked out. Problem solved.

Apparently weddings are often more exciting in India.
Last month, another bride in Uttar Pradesh married a wedding guest after the original groom had a seizure and collapsed at the wedding venue. The groom’s family had not revealed that the groom was epileptic.

I'm totally on her side.
I have plenty of more important things to do, if only I could bring myself to do them....

Although I'd say it's more appropriate to write how one can dissolve a marriage with math
I don't suffer from insanity, I enjoy every minute of it.

Actually I would consider this more of a prenup.

I'm disappointed in her parents for not saving everyone a bunch of time and doing the same test before the "arrangement".

It's India. And at least she was able to walk away.
