Promised a swanky car as gift, TN man tries to get 18-yr-old son married to 25-yr-old divorcee

Vellore: Lured by the assurance of the “gift” of a swanky car to his son from the bride’s family, a man tried to get his teenage son married to a 25-year old woman divorcee and the proposed wedding was thwarted, an official said here on Friday.

While the boy’s father was going ahead with preparations for the wedding scheduled to be held in a week, his family objected to the proposal since the boy was underage in addition to the woman being older and a divorcee.

Since the teen’s father was unrelenting considering the promise of the “gift” of a car, a family member lodged a complaint with the district authorities here and officials swung into action.

“An 18-year-old boy getting married is illegal. We have taken an undertaking from him (boy’s father) to the effect that he will desist from making preparations for marriage till the time the boy completes 21 years,” an official told PTI, adding that the proposed wedding had been halted.

The boy’s family belongs to a village near here.

The legal age for marriage for a man is 21 years and for a woman it is 18.
