They had one job to do.
The parents of a bride and groom in India ran off and eloped ahead of their kids’ February wedding, prompting the families to call the whole thing off, according to the Times of India.
The bride’s father and groom’s mother reportedly went missing about 11 days ago. The father, a textile salesman, vanished from his home in Surat city and the mother was last seen at home in Navsari.
Their families reported them missing, though they suspect that it’s more likely they rekindled a childhood romance and eloped — no doubt inspiring a future quirky Bollywood rom-com.
At least they avoided a tumultuous wedding day disaster, unlike one New York couple, whose rehearsal dinner devolved into utter chaos when the bride and groom’s families reportedly brawled over a toast. The scene allegedly resulted in the seething bride giving her betrothed an ultimatum: “Make a choice, me or your mother,” a source told The Post at the time.
