NEW DELHI (AP) — An Indian bride has walked out of her wedding ceremony after her groom-to-be failed to solve a simple math problem.

The bride tested the groom on his math skills and when he got the sum wrong, she walked out.

The question she asked: How much is 15 plus six.

His reply: 17.

The groom's family tried persuading the bride to return, but she refused. She said the groom had misled them about his education.

Local police mediated between the families and both sides returned all the gifts that had been exchanged before the wedding, police officer Rakesh Kumar said Friday.

Most marriages in India are arranged by the families of the bride and groom. Except for brief meetings, the couple rarely get to know each other before the nuptials.

    If the genders were reversed, the man would be called a misogynist sexist pig. But she’s a woman, so it’s OK. Guess the guy dodged a bullet, really, if she was that much of a bi*** to begin with.

      ha the young gal wanted someone that can support the family if they were to have any kids , do not blame the young lady , the parents were to blame , looks like the grooms parents wanted to dump the boy and the young lady saw that he was as dumb as hell , give the young lady some space and let her decide who she wants to be with , after all it is her life and not her parents . .
