Epileptic Fit Causes Bride to Be Quit and Marry Guest on the Spot

One of the secrets to a good marriage is honesty, disclosure and trust
Ere that shining marital luster of love and devotion quickly turns to rust
An example from the news and why the “Beta Marriage” among millennials is gaining traction
Too often in the U.S. especially the Golden State the bloom wilts too soon into dissatisfaction
In India there was news with a different marital twist
And reasons why the “Beta Marriage” idea is hard to resist
Jugal Kishore at 25 was preparing to garland his 23 year old bride on their wedding day
When a sudden epileptic seizure on him held sway
The bride in a complete "I have been deceived snit,"
Announced to families and guests “From this marriage I do quit”
Turned to a guest and asked to marry her on the spot
The guest may or may not have known the bride but with her he cast his lot
The poor epileptic rejected groom
Finally regained consciousness in the wedding room
Only to find his bride was someone else’s wife
A brawl ensued with attacks with weapons like a fork, plate or knife
Fortunately, no one was killed and the rejected groom a lesson learned
Peel your onion of secrets with a future wife or you will be quickly spurned.
