A bride from Rasoolabad, a village located in the industrial city of Kanpur, Uttar Prades, was supposed to marry the man of her life in an arranged marriage.
Supposed to, until he got his simple math equation wrong.

Arranged Marriage Without Transparency
According to Astro Awani, as it was an arranged marriage between the families, the bride was confused as to whether she should cancel the wedding – which obviously she did la.

Local Authorities Involved
As the bride left, it was said that the groom’s family had persuaded her to proceed with the wedding.

Okay, here’s a true story.
While this news may sound absurd, it is, however, true that in India, families are really particular when it comes to status and education.
I once had a colleague from India, and I did ask her about arranged marriage back in her country.
She said that arranged marriage is real in India, but unlike the past, parents aren’t as forceful as how they were.
She explained that the couple will be allowed to have a few dates to get to know each other better, although some parents may still pressure their kids into marrying a particular person.
She also said that parents also do have a hidden checklist in the back of their mind.
Criteria such as good education, social status, family background etc. must be met before the arranged marriage can happen.
So, kids, here’s a tip okay?
Take your mathematics lesson seriously and don’t rely too much on a calculator.
You never know when your girlfriend will ask you what is 15+6.
