(Math Puns Are the First Sine of Madness t-shirt on sale at the NeatoShop)
It was my understanding that there would be no math. Apparently, so did a groom in Rasoolabad, Uttar Pradesh, India. He and his bride were partners in an arranged marriage.
The bride suspected that the groom's family had lied to her family about his education. So at the wedding, she presented him with a simple math test that consisted of only one question. The Canadian Press describes it:
How much is 15 plus six?
His reply: 17.
She left immediately. Now they're trying to get the wedding gifts returned:
The groom's family tried persuading the bride to return, but she refused. She said the groom had misled them about his education.
"The groom's family kept us in the dark about his poor education," said Mohar Singh, the bride's father. "Even a first grader can answer this."
Local police mediated between the families and both sides returned all the gifts and jewelry that had been exchanged before the wedding, Kumar said.
