In a rather bizarre incident, a couple got married before the corpse of groom’s dead father. The incident took place in Tindivanam on Friday. D Alexander, who hails from Singanur village in Tindivanam, was to marry B Jagadeswari on September 2, but Alexander decided to advance it when his father died on Friday at the age of 50.
The marriage was scheduled to be held at the Mailam Subraman Swamy temple, but when Deivamani died, Alexander asked his bride’s family to let them get married before his father’s dead body.
Close relatives and family members were present when he had the mangalasutra handed from his father and tied the knot amidst the grief, said a relative of Jagadeswari. As per a report in the New Indian Express, a wedding reception is likely to be held next month, said sources.
