In India’s eastern Jharkhand, villagers ‘married’ off a young girl to a stray dog to ward off an evil spirit.
The locals at Munda Dhanda village performed the ceremony as they believe it will overcome any curse that might fall on the family
Interestingly, the girl is free to get married later in life to a man without even seeking a divorce.
Superstitions are widespread in India, especially in rural areas where literacy is scarce.
What are the odds that sex is involved in this marriage? I wish as far as it gets, the marriage is only a ceremony for the girl and the dog and goes no where beyond that.
The dog definitely has no clue whatsoever that he’s actually used to ward off evil spirit.
The only way out is education. Hope they get a dose of that soon.
