Husband gives his wife’s hand in marriage to man she’s been having affair with
After assisting his seven-year-old wife in marrying the man with whom she had been having an affair for years, an Indian man recently left the entire country puzzled.
Uttam Mandal and Sapna Kumari, both from Bhagalpur, Bihar, India, married in 2014 and have two children.
They were happy together for a while, but at some point Sapna fell in love with a relative of Uttman’s, a younger man who came around their house every once in a while, and the two started having an affair.
The husband learned about Sapna’s escapade and they fought over the issue many times, but seeing as Sapna couldn’t get over her lover, Uttman decided to do the unthinkable, step aside and help his wife marry the man she loved.
“I got angry and sad for some time but decided to come out with a solution.
“The lives of three people would have been destroyed had I not done this. This was the only solution. Now all of us can be happy,” Mandal told ETV Bharat.
Over the years, Sapna’s parents and in-laws tried to convince her to stay with Uttam and not break up the family, but their efforts were in vain, so in the end Uttam ended up convincing them to attend his wife’s wedding ceremony with her lover, Raju Kumar.
He arranged their wedding at a Durga temple in Sutanganj, Bihar, and even gave them their blessing, saying that their match was made in heaven.
