    Default Groom has seizure at altar, Bride scans crowd & marries another man



    A determined bride refused to call off her wedding -- even though the groom was unconscious. According to the Times of India, during the wedding ceremony, the groom had an epileptic seizure and collapsed in front of a large gathering of family and guests.

    The bride was enraged, realizing that her husband-to-be had been hiding his medical condition from her. While the groom’s family rushed him to the hospital, the bride carried on with the nuptials -- with another man. She scanned the crowd and chose a gentleman -- the brother of her sister’s husband -- and married him right on the spot.

    When the groom regained consciousness, he returned to the wedding venue to find his bride had already tied the knot. He pleaded with her to reconsider, saying he’d be shamed by his friends and family if he returned to his neighborhood without a wife. But the newlywed woman stood firm.

    And that’s when it got ugly. Dishes and silverware went flying as the families brawled over the bridal bait-and-switch.

    Police had to break up the fight and arrested several of the guests. The groom and his family filed a complaint with local police, but an officer told the Times of India, “since the bride is already married now, what can anyone do?” The complaint was eventually withdrawn.

    i bet the real story is that this was an arranged marriage, when the groom had his seizure and his condition was discovered, the bride and her family probably felt she was no longer bound by the agreement between both families, and i bet she picked the brother of her sister's husband because they already had feelings for each other and this was their chance.

    Good for her.

    I have an etiquette question - If you are the new groom, how do you sign the thank you cards?

    Bollywood trope is usually "take my bride" where the groom gives away the bride to the man she loves secretly. See every Shah Rukh Khan movie ever made. Bride has usually no say in the matter.
