Bride dumps groom during marriage for flunking IQ test

Agra: A bride had to call off her marriage after her to-be groom failed to count beyond nine and couldn't answer some basic questions posed by her. The girl’s family alleged that the groom was ‘illiterate’ and ‘mentally unfit.’

The bride, Khushboo Saxena, was all set to marry Omveer Singh of Auraiyya. The girl's side thought it was a good match for Khushboo as they had been told he was a graduate and owned 60 bighas of land. However, it didn't turn out that way.

When the marriage proceedings began, one of the bride’s friends told her that the groom was unable to chant the wedding mantras properly. It was then that Khushboo decided to test Omveer.

She handed her 'not-to-be' groom a few coins and asked him to add them up. However, Singh couldn't count beyond nine. Following this, Khushboo then asked him to differentiate between 69 and 79, and he again failed. Finally, she handed him her smartphone, and asked him to dial her number. Singh attempted to do so, but  was unsuccessful.

Khushboo then decided to call off the wedding. She remained unmoved even after Singh pleaded with her, claiming that DJ and too much noise at the venue distracted his mind. A panchayat of local elders was convened on the spot but that too didn't convince the girl to accept Omveer as her husband.

Omveer, who studied till Class 8, had an ultimate alleged goal of becoming a teacher. She would never accept an 'illiterate' husband, the guests who were there to attend the wedding said.

Finally, mutual compromise was reached, the two families agreed to return gifts, including jewellery, exchanged during the pre-wedding rituals.

Notably, earlier this year in March a similar incident took place, when a groom in Uttar Pradesh’s Kanpur Dehat district returned home without a bride after he failed to solve a simple mathematical problem.
