A woman from Kanpur Dehr district was about to marry her groom also from Kanpur, but the man was hopelessly inebriated at the wedding ceremony and even fell off the stage seconds before the garland exchange ritual. He then started quarrelling with the hosts.
The disgusted bride-to-be threw off her garland and walked away, refusing to marry the drunk man. Her parents and family supported her decision.
The groom’s side later approached the police, but the two families resolved the matter amicably and reached a compromise.
