A father in India made his daughter marry one of their relatives after the man she was supposed to marry arrived at the ceremony late and drunk.
The groom had been drinking and partying with his friends and, as a result, was four hours overdue for the April 22 ceremony.
When he finally arrived at the wedding venue in the Indian state of Maharashtra, the bride's father flat out refused to let the groom marry his daughter, India Today reported.
"The groom and his friends were drunk and came to the mandap at 8 pm instead of 4 pm and started fighting," said the bride's mother.
"We got my daughter married to one of our relatives."
The outraged bride's father told India Today he consulted the relative to marry his daughter, given everything had already been organised for the ceremony.
"The wedding time was at 4 pm but they reached the venue at 8 pm. So, I got my daughter married to one of my relatives."
