WATCH: One Smart Bride Calls Off the Wedding When the Groom Can’t Answer This Very Simple Question

Would you marry someone who couldn’t do simple addition? One Indian bride gave her groom-to-be a little math test before walking down the aisle, and when he failed, she walked out on the wedding.

An Indian bride named Lovely called off her marriage after she asked her former groom one very smart yet simple question. BBC News reports:

“The bride asked the groom to add 15 and 6. When he replied 17, she called off the marriage.

Reports say the groom’s family tried to convince the bride to return, but she refused saying the man was illiterate.”

Fortunately for the two, it wasn’t the most devastating of break-ups, since this was an arranged marriage.

A police official of Rasoolabad village, where the breakup occurred, commented on the situation:

“Just before the marriage ceremony Lovely came to know that Ram Baran is illiterate and she refused to marry.”

Mohar Singh, the father of the bride, did not seem to blame his daughter and told the Associated Press that the groom’s family kept his illiteracy a secret.

Even with this being an arranged marriage, it’s a little hard to understand how things were able to progress as far as they did without anyone realizing that the groom was completely illiterate. Regardless of how it happened, though, she probably did the right thing by walking away from this guy.
