While one person wrote, “What the hell is going on here?” Another explained: “This is a tradition – more like a bride and groom contest about who feeds the other person in the fastest way”, adding: “But they went too far”.
A third jokingly said, “They could have at least waited until they were back at the hotel to tumble around in front of family and friends,” while a fourth added, “Well, that’s one way to a lifelong commitment”.

Meanwhile, speaking of wedding rituals, last month a man and a woman got married 30 years after their deaths. 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 performed for those who died during birth. The communities there believe this is a way to honor their spirit.
