A Indian bride, suspecting that her intended was illiterate, asked him to count money and when he failed at the task refused to marry him.

The initial wedding rituals had already begun in a small village in Ballia, in the Indian region of Uttar Pradesh last Friday, when a graduate bride-to-be began to suspect the groom, Manoj, to be illiterate.

She then called on her husband-to-be to carry out a currency counting exercise to prove his worth, according to the girl’s family.

He failed to complete the task successfully, and she subsequently called off the wedding.

Following the test, a dispute between the two parties allegedly ensued and a meeting of the village authority (locally referred to as the Panchayat) was then called.

Then groom’s family left the area for Bihar shortly after the meeting, according to the Press Trust of India.
