Heartbroken bride finds another groom at weddingGrab the popcorn—this story is the stuff of soap operas.
They say the best way to get over someone is to meet someone else. One woman from Madhya Pradesh, India, really took that advice to heart.
A bride named Ruksar was all set to marry her fiancé, Parvez, on Monday. But her wedding turned out to be a daylong drama-filled event that, eventually, had a happy ending.
As the palatial ceremony began, a 30-year-old woman stormed into Ruskar’s wedding. Her name? Radhika Chouhan. Her problem? She’d been dating the groom for the past eight years. In fact, they lived together. With their two children.
According to the Times of India, Radhika slapped Parvez and refused to allow the wedding to continue.
"Parvez had told me that he is going to Gujarat,” she said. “But when I called him up on his number, it was [busy]. What surprised me was that the recorded message was in Hindi not in Gujarati. I then reached Parvez's home only to find that he is getting married.”
Obviously, the bride was heartbroken. And while the families were skeptical about Radhika’s claims, once she showed them photographic evidence of her relationship with the groom, the wedding was called off indefinitely.
But there was another contender.
Amid the drama, one of the wedding guests came forward to offer his son as a new groom for Ruksar. The new groom said:
"My parents asked me for the marriage and I couldn't deny."
Let’s hope he left that out of the vows.
At any rate, the bride and her new groom were married later that night. Thankfully, that wedding went through without any interruptions.
Despite the drama, Ruksar kept a positive attitude about the situation:
“God had a better plan for me.”
love: friendship, dating, sex & marriage
You’d think brides and grooms who celebrate their nuptials with 50 guests have an equal shot at wedded bliss as those who invite 500, but apparently not.
Because some things are just better with a buddy (whom you happen to be dating).
They're smart, funny, and adorable, but are you a good match?
Fight the urge to sign her up for OkCupid and read this instead.
We know you have good intentions, but...please...stop.
You can't say we didn't warn you. Every month is Movember when you're dating a guy with a beard. And while the scruffy look can be hot, there are some very real, err, challenges that come with the territory. Don't believe us? Well…
