In a bizarre incident reported from Uttar Pradesh, a groom’s kiss did not seal the relationship, but ended it forever. A bride got angry and called off her wedding just because the groom kissed her on stage in front of nearly 300 guests.

Reports said, the groom kissed her right after the couple exchanged garlands. This infuriated the bride so much that she immediately walked off from the dais and later called the police.

The 23-year-old bride, a graduate, said the groom kissed her to win a bet with his friends, and now she is "doubtful about his character".

Both the parties were taken to the police station where the bride alleged that the groom touched her inappropriately but she initially ignored it.

"When he kissed me, I felt insulted. He did not care about my self-respect and misbehaved in front of several guests," she alleged.
Police tried to mediate, but the bride refused to relent after which the wedding was called off and the guests returned home.

Her mother said, "The groom was provoked by his friends. We tried to convince my daughter but she refused to marry him. We have decided to wait for a few days and let her take some time to decide."

The police said that, "Technically the couple is married as the rituals were done by the time the incident happened. We will decide what to do after waiting for a couple of days for things to cool down."

Interestingly, brides in Shahjahanpur and Lakhimpur Kheri had cancelled their weddings because the grooms broke into a 'nagin' dance.

A day back, an Uttar Pradesh bride broke stereotypes and led her ‘baraat’ (wedding procession) while sitting on a horse-drawn cart. A video of the unique ritual is winning the internet and is being widely shared on social media.

This incident was reported from Uttar Pradesh’s Muzaffarnagar.

The bride, Simran, was dressed up in a red lehenga and wore a matching turban and went on a horse cart along with her family and friends for the marriage ritual.
