    I had to check for a second if this was April 1st. You can't make this up.

    She probably didn't want to propagate his stupid genes! :)

    But that's not all in that news report. This one was even a bigger eye-opener!

    Gives us all another way to look at the role of "Best Man" at a wedding, doesn't it?

    :)

    Zz.

    "Rampur town, the bride asked one of the wedding guests to step in and married him."
    I think the guest who married her, was one the relatives of the groom/bride. It was all over the radio when it happened. We all laughed.
    Is it a coincidence or are both the incidents intentionally from the same country?

    What would have really been funny is if he answered 21 and she walked out because she didn't know the answer.

    I don't think it is pure coincidence:

    Hmm.. I just read that, she married a relative of her brother in law's family. Not necessary that he was a blood brother(relative).

    Definition of incest is cultural dependent.
