You never know when you might get tested.
An Indian bride has walked out of her wedding after her bridegroom-to-be failed to solve a simple maths problem, according to police in Uttar Pradesh.
The bride asked the groom to add 15 and six. 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.
I’m glad she had standards and the guts to stand up for them, but why stop at simple arithmetic? Clearly there ought to be a written essay question, something about history, a bit of a philosophy problem, and an exercise in writing poetry. Natural selection: no one gets married without a liberal arts education!
Or, at least, passing third grade.
