A bride in India decided to marry another man after being angry with her groom, who kept drinking and dancing with friends and did not show up on time, India Times reported.

The incident occurred in the Churu district of the Indian state of Rajasthan. The family and friends of the groom were expected to be at the bride's residence around 9pm. However, the "baraat" was delayed for hours because of the groom's non-serious attitude.

As a result, the "mahurat," or auspicious moment for the wedding, was missed.

The bride and her family were furious and decided to break up with the groom. The groom and his relatives were then returned, and the woman was married off to someone else.

Following the event, the family of the groom filed a police report against the family of the bride.

The family of the bride told the police that they feared groom's irresponsible and careless behavior would continue in the future.
