What happens when you marry a stray dog!?
A teenager married a DOG during a lavish Indian wedding in front of at least 70 guests.
Unhappy Mangli Munda, 18, from a remote part of eastern India, was told by village elders that marrying the confused canine would ward off an evil spell.
A local guru told her parents the teenager possessed ill-luck and that marrying a man would bring destruction to the family and her community.
The baffled dog, Sheru, was brought to the wedding in a chauffeur driven car and welcomed by revellers.
Mangli added: ‘I will marry a man one day. It is the dream of every girl to marry a prince charming. So I am also waiting for my prince.
Sri added: “Many weddings like this have taken place in our village and also the other neighbouring villages. This is a custom that we thoroughly believe in.”
According to the village’s customs, the marriage will not affect Mangli’s life, and she will be free to marry again later without divorcing the dog.
“My villagers say that many girls like me have followed this ritual and they have gotten rid of their evil spells and are living happy lives now,” said Mangli.
