Indian groom too drunk to wed, so brother steps in

Mon Apr 30, 2:59 AM ET


PATNA, India (Reuters) - Villagers at a wedding in eastern India decided the groom had arrived too drunk to get married, and so the bride married the groom's more sober brother instead, police said on Monday.

"The groom was drunk and had reportedly misbehaved with guests when the bride's family and local villagers chased him away," Madho Singh, a senior police officer told Reuters after Sunday's marriage in a village in Bihar state's Arwal district.
The younger brother readily agreed to take the groom's place beside the teenage bride at her family's invitation, witnesses said.
"The groom apologised for his behaviour, but has been crying that word will spread and he will never get a bride again," Singh said by phone.

Well, if one brother from the family was good enough, then the other ought to be as well.

Hmmm.... while polyandry can be a lovely idea (I'm currently taking applications for hubby #2), I can't imagine it working well in this situation. Have you ever seen brothers share a toy nicely? I haven't.

On the short term, yes. A lifetime of it, not so much. Your arms get sore from being in the middle of the tug-o-war all the time. *lol*

And see, that would defeat the whole purpose of having two husbands. You need two men who can share, can cohabitate, and can work together to build a strong family unit. Not men who constantly want to kill eachother! lol.

No no.... bi isn't necessary. It works, but it's not necessary. Two busy, non-territorial men will work.

Why bother with the brother, just marry any guy walking down the street. That way you don't have to waste time getting to know him. Hopefully, the dowry was adequate, that way the grooms family wouldn't have to kill the bride. Marriage in India is such a serious affair.
