Bide weds brother of drunken groom

A tale of a drunken groom! Villagers at a wedding in the Bihar state of India, decided the groom had arrived too drunk to get married, and so the bride married the groom's more sober brother instead, reports Hindustan Times.

"The groom was drunk and had reportedly misbehaved with guests when the bride's family and local villagers chased him away," Madho Singh, a senior police officer told Reuters after Sunday's marriage in a village in Bihar's Arwal district.

The younger brother readily agreed to take the groom's place beside the teenage bride at her family's invitation, witnesses said.

"The groom apologised for his behaviour, but has been crying that word will spread and he will never get a bride again," police said.
