A groom in India called off his wedding because the bride’s family failed to prepare a dish he had wanted, he would go on to marry another woman the same day.
According to the New Indian Express, he took the action to spite the bride’s family.
27-year-old Ramakant Patra had arrived with a traditional wedding procession to marry a woman in Sukinda, a town in the Jajpur district of Odisha, on Wednesday June 23.
When he and his family arrived, they were welcomed by the bride’s relatives and taken to have lunch before the wedding ceremony.
The groom had demanded mutton (sheep meat) curry be part of the wedding feast, the newspaper reported. So when the dish was not prepared, an argument broke out and soon escalated.
In a shocking move, Patra then called off the wedding and could not be convinced to change his mind. He and his family went to a relative’s home in Sukinda, where they stayed the rest of the day.
That night, he reportedly married another woman before returning home to Rebanapalaspal in the neighboring Keonjhar district.
