Most of us are stepping out only to get essentials amid the lockdown. And, while sometimes we may buy comfort foods like chocolate or Maggi, it’s highly unlikely for us to get anything else.
Speaking of which, a man from Ghaziabad returned home with a wife after he went grocery shopping, reports NDTV. However, surprised by her son’s actions, his mother denied the couple entry in the house. In fact, his mom went to the Sahibabad Police complaining about him.

His teary-eyed mother was quoted saying by Hindustan Times,
“I had sent my son to do the grocery shopping today, but when he returned, he came back with his wife. I am not ready to accept this marriage.”
Mother sent son to buy grocery, he returned with a bride. Mom didn’t allow them to enter the house, took them to police station. Couple has no proof that they got married. The priest who got them married told them he can give a certificate only after the lockdown. 😀#UP ki batein pic.twitter.com/MPQG1MQaQY

Guddu, the 26-year-old groom, said that he married Savita two months ago at an Arya Samaj Mandir in Haridwar.
“However, we could not get the marriage certificate at that time due to lack of witnesses. I had decided to visit Haridwar again for my marriage certificate but could not do so as the lockdown was imposed,” he added.
Guddu decided to bring his wife home as she was apparently asked to vacate her rented accommodation in Delhi. She was staying there due to the lockdown. However, since his mother refused him entry, the cops had to step in. For now, Sahibabad police have asked Savita’s landlord to let the couple stay at the rented place in Delhi. Well, we wish the couple good luck for their future.
