Weird marriage. A 35-year old man married a 6-year old girl to fulfill the requirements of a tradition.

Rajasthan, India - Ratan Lal Jat, 35 years old, got married to a 6-year old girl from the village where he is elected as an official.

The wedding was kept a secret and there were only 5 witnesses. Among the witnesses was Jumani Bai, local marriage broker known for arranging marriages with child-brides for fees.

Ratan Lal Jat tied the knot to his very young wife to fulfill the requirements of Nata Pratha, a custom prevalent in parts of Rajasthan, Gujarat and Madhya Pradesh in India allows a man to have a live-in relationship with a married woman. The custom also entitles the parents of the bride to receive money from the groom. But this practice is allowed only if both man and woman are already married to other people.

“We learned about the incident when the pictures of the wedding started circulating on social network apps,” Inspector Gyanendra Singh said, reported Metro. “We managed to get hold of the pictures and we sent a team to investigate the matter. We found Ratan Lal had married a minor to follow age-old customs. But for us it is a clear case of child marriage and we arrested Ratan Lal Jat under the Prohibition of Child Marriage Act 2006.”

The pictures of the actual wedding ceremony enraged people on social media. The pictures were disturbed the conservative netizens.
