A man in India reportedly called off his wedding shortly before the ceremony was due to take place because the bride’s family hadn’t prepared a dish he wanted.
To add insult to injury, the groom married another woman later that very day, the New Indian Express reported.
According to the newspaper, 27-year-old Ramakant Patra had arrived with a traditional wedding procession to marry a woman in Sukinda, a town in the Jajpur district of Odisha, on Wednesday.
When he and his family arrived, they were welcomed by the bride’s relatives and taken to have lunch before the wedding ceremony.
The groom’s wedding party had demanded mutton curry be part of the wedding feast, the newspaper reported.
So when the dish was not prepared, an argument broke out and soon escalated. Patra then called off the wedding and could not be convinced to change his mind.
He and his family went to a relative’s home in Sukinda, where they stayed the rest of the day.
That night, he married another woman before returning home to Rebanapalaspal in the neighboring Keonjhar district.
