Ahmedabad: Wedding plans of a couple in Gujarat fell by the wayside after the groom's father and the bride's mother allegedly eloped earlier this month. Following their disappearance, family members of the 48-year-old man and the 46-year-old woman have filed a missing person's complaint with the police. A probe into the matter is underway but preliminary inputs suggest that the middle-aged couple knew each other from earlier.
This tale of two people rekindling their old love has come to light from the city of Surat. It came to light only after family members of the man and women discovered that they had been missing for over 10 days. Less than a month ahead of the wedding of their children, the textile businessman from Katargam and the homemaker from Navsari decided to give themselves a second chance.
According to a report by The Times of India, the young couple was due to get married in the second week of February. However, recent developments have left them in an awkward situation where the wedding is likely to be postponed until more details emerge about the groom's missing father and the bride's missing mother. In their statement to the police, family members of the missing couple said that they were last seen at their respective homes on January 10 of this year.
It is believed that the groom's father knew the bride's mother from earlier. The two had been neighbours in Katargam area of Surat city a long time ago and even dated each other for a brief period of time. The report further adds that the two had even tried to elope several years before they decided to give themselves a second chance. They were unable to marry each other the first time around since her family ended up marrying her to a wealthy diamond broker instead.
