Mangli Munda, 18, Marries Dog To Ward Off Curse

Posted: Updated:

Many women don't find out their husband's a dog until after they get married.

Mangli Munda doesn't have that problem.

The 18-year-old, who lives in a small village in the state of Jharkland, India, recently married a stray pooch in order to ward off a curse that her fellow villagers feared would cause the death of any man who married her.

Munda's dad, Sri Amnmunda, said he didn't want to be dogged by the curse any longer than necessary.

"The village elders told us that we should organize the wedding as soon as we can," he told Barcroft TV. "We had to make sure that the evil spell is destroyed."

Amnmunda found a stray pooch named "Sheru" and made him the groom in a traditional and elaborate Hindu wedding, even driving him to the ceremony in a chauffeured limousine.

Munda is honest about her feelings about the whole thing.

"I am not happy with this marriage," she said, according to the Metro.

There is good news: The dog wedding is only ceremonial. Since it's not legally binding, Munda will be free to marry a human male who, hopefully, won't cat around on her.
