A clip shared on Instagram shows a newly wed couple getting into a heated but playful argument during their wedding ceremony. A short video shows the newlyweds sitting at the mandap in their traditional wedding attire. I pulled it.
Watch the video below:
At the end of the clip, the groom is shown smiling as the wife aggressively tries to feed him first. The people around them also try to stop the couple from arguing deeply.
The video received more than 70,000 likes on social media. It attracted mixed reactions from viewers. While one person wrote, “What is happening here on earth?”, Another explained, “It is a tradition, plus a competition between the spouses to feed the other person as quickly as possible,” adding, “But they too have gone far.
” A third jokingly said, “They could have at least waited till they got back to the hotel to tumble around in front of family and friends,” while a fourth added, “Well, that’s one way to start a lifelong commitment”.

Meanwhile, speaking of wedding rituals, last month a man and woman got married 30 years after their death. The ceremony was part of a tradition called “Pretha Kalyanam” or the “marriage of the dead”. The tradition, which is followed in some parts of Karnataka and Kerala, is conducted for those who died during birth. The communities there believe this as a way of honouring their spirits.
