Indian Man Goes Out for Groceries, Comes Home with a Bride

An Indian mother got the shock of a lifetime this week when she sent her son out to get groceries and he came back with a woman he claimed was his wife.

The unnamed woman from Uttar Pradesh’s Ghaziabad city told India’s ANI news agency that she had sent her son out to buy groceries, but instead he came back with a strange woman he said was his wife. The teary-eyed woman said the shock was too much for her and she was unable to accept their union.

“I had sent my son to do the grocery shopping today, but when he returned, he came back with his wife. I am not ready to accept this marriage,” the woman said, according to the Hindustan Times.

As for the newlyweds, they apparently married in secret a couple of months back, and the bride was living alone in a rented apartment in Delhi. The groom planned to tell his mother about the marriage further down the line, but the Covid-19 lockdown messed up his plans. Savita, his wife, was apparently asked to vacate the rented accommodation in Delhi, so he had to bring her home to mommy dearest.

“Today I decided to bring her to my mother’s house as she was told to leave the rented accommodation due to lockdown,” 26-year-old Guddu said. “We could not get the marriage certificate at that time due to lack of witnesses. I had decided to visit Haridwar again but could not due to the lockdown.”

As the newlyweds could not convince the groom’s mother to let them stay in her house, police stepped in to help and asked Savita’s landlord in Delhi to let them stay in the rented accommodation until they can find something better, or until the scorned mother comes around.
