This exceptional, and surprising wedding ceremony took place in Chowgacha village in the district's Gangni upazila on Saturday
Breaking the age old customs of a marriage ceremony in Bangladesh, a bride came to the groom's house to tie the knot in Meherpur, and it also turned the heads of many of the villagers.
This exceptional, and surprising wedding ceremony took place in Chowgacha village in the district's Gangni upazila on Saturday.
The bride Khadija Akhtar Khushi, pursuing undergraduate at Kushtia Islamia college, is the daughter of Kamruzzam from Hajrahati village of Chuadanga district.
Groom Tarikul Islam Joy, a businessman, is the son of local workers' party leader Abdul Mabud from Chowgacha village of Meherpur's Gangni upazila.
Bride Khadija accompanied by the bridesmen and brideswomen, along with a motorcade of seven microbuses, and thirty motorcycles reached the groom's house on Saturday.
After finishing all the wedding rituals, Khadija took her husband Tarikul to her father's house at Hajrahati village of Chuadanga district in the afternoon.
Generally, a groom goes to the bride's house to wed, and perform a wedding ceremony in our society. But, as an expression of equal rights for men and women, we did this coming out of the box.'' said Khadija Akhtar Khushi.
Groom's father Abdul Mabud said: '' We speak about ensuring women's rights, but we fail in reality. By arranging such a marriage, I tried to bring up the matter of equal rights for men and women to the fore.''
