Man Hold Up! Math takes out a marriage …A man in India is once again a bachelor after he was unable to complete a simple math problem.  According to BBC News, the man’s bride-to-be asked him to add the numbers 15 and six just before their wedding.  When he said 17 instead of 21, she called off the marriage.  The groom’s family tried to get her to change her mind, but she refused to marry someone she claimed was illiterate.  Local police were reportedly called in to mediate between the two families, and both sides eventually returned all the gifts that had been handed out before the wedding.
