Mangli and Sheru
Forget about your parents telling you who to marry, at least they want you to get married to a person. Look at this 18-year-old who got married to a dog because her village elders wanted her to get married to the dog. The reason behind all this is, “The superstitious folks of rural India were convinced an evil spirit possessed young Mangli and that her first husband will get to suffer. Sheru’s role was to perform a cleansing and prepare her for a real marriage.” But at least the dog would be so loyal to her, unlike any men.
