    Bride jilts groom for failing her wedding-day math test

    Following last month's jilting of a groom who had a seizure, the wedding jinx of Uttar Pradesh state in India has struck again. Wednesday, at a wedding ceremony in a village near the town of Kanpur:

    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...

    "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."

    Might have saved me a couple marriages if I'd have been quizzed on algebra at the altar.

    Well, can't say that I blame her. 17+6 is not too difficult a problem. He could have used his fingers and still got it wrong.

    If only more American women made their potential mate prior to mating, take some exam or have any standards, there would be a lot fewer threads on our beloved site!

    Unless I provide a link or refer to a specific link, all my ramblings are theories, speculation, scenarios based on what info is available and my own unique life experiences.

    I think she made a fair call, good to know these things before tying the knot
    You don't get a medal for switching alliances just before the result, as it becomes apparent the other team is set to win.
