    Indian Bride Quits Wedding After Groom Fails Math Test

    NEW DELHI—
    An Indian bride has walked out of her wedding ceremony after her groom-to-be failed to solve a 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 + 6?

    His reply: 17.

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

    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 grader can answer this.”

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

    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.

    Most marriages in India are arranged by the families of the bride and groom. Except for brief meetings, the couple rarely gets to know each other before the nuptials.

    That is simple arithmetic...

    But, she didn't ask him how he came up with that number...

    Reminds me of Little Johnny saying he had seven cats 'cause when the teacher gave him six, he already had one at home...

    Well why waste all that money spent on the reception?

    Could have said 17 as that's what he'd buy 21 for

    Rubbish. Just ask what 15+6 equals.... just remember to add the word BAHT to the calculation.

    What I meant was, if she was a fugly, he might have hedged his bets and answered 17 when 21 would have done. Like blackjack like....a decent whatever shall be. If so, clever beyond words

    I once got a freelance girl from a bar in Bangkok to solve a 2nd order differential equation from 1st principles and she was also able to name every element on the periodic table from its symbol and vice versa.

    She said she was final year science at uni.

    She did not even charge any money (for solving the equation).
