Being a few minutes late to a wedding, although embarrassing, is usually forgivable. But what happens when your husband-to-be is more than a few hours late to the nuptials?
A groom named Jameel in Ghaziabad, India is making news headlines after arriving at 6 p.m. to his scheduled wedding to bride-to-be Nagma, which was supposed to start at 10:30 am. Jameel was confronted by the bride's relatives, a fight ensued between both parties and police had to interfere to end the brawl. Despite the commotion, the wedding still went on: After finding a replacement for the groom, the bride wed a different man that same day. Why waste a wedding, right? Let's just hope that Jameel had his own back-up...
The reason for Jameel's late arrival is unknown, but arranged marriages are still customary in some parts of India, so it's possible that the couple had never met before. In the United States, certain churches and venues may charge a hefty late fee if you show up even 10 minutes after schedule, all the more reason to skip the fashionably-late entrance.
