The times are changing and so are our brides. Gone are the days, when our brides would silently suffer the abuse or the unfair demands of the groom and his family. Whether our patriarchal society like it or not, our brides are taking a firm stand against the unfair treatment that grooms or their families subject brides and their parents to.
Recently, one such bride took a stand when her groom showed up drunk at their wedding. She got so angry that she chose to marry someone else. This inspiring real life incident happened in the Churu district of Rajasthan.
As per India Today, the bride got so angry after realizing that her groom got drunk and kept dancing, which delayed her baarat for hours.
On Sunday, May 15, Sunil and his relatives arrived in the bride’s village for his wedding. While the baraat was supposed to leave for the bride’s residence at 9 pm, the groom and his friends kept drinking alcohol and ‘chilling’ and dancing for hours.
Because of the groom’s reckless behavior, the mahurat (Auspicious time for pheras) got delayed. Finally, the bride and her family got so frustrated with the commotion caused by the groom and his relatives and friends, that they decided to ditch the groom!
When the angry bride returned the baarat, her family instantly decided to get her married to someone else.
After the fiasco, the groom’s family went to the Rajgarh police station and filed the complaint against the bride’s family. However, the bride’s family shared how they feared that the groom and his family’s reckless behavior would continue in the future. After police intervention, both sides of the family stated family issues as to why the wedding was canceled. They provided all the information to the police.
Meanwhile, the internet is in awe of this inspiring woman for taking a stand against the reckless groom and his family. Here’s what the netizens have to say:
While many appreciated the bride and her family, there were few, who blamed the woman for being too demanding and made fun of the whole incident.
At IFORHER, we are so proud of this woman for standing for herself and her dignity. We wish her loads of luck and love for her married life.
