A hopeful bride and her husband-to-be have nothing to smile about after the two had to suddenly cancel their wedding.
The happy pair expected to strut into their happily ever after but sadly, their parents ruined their short-lived happiness.
According to Times of India, the pair who was set to walk down the aisle in February 2020 learned the bride’s mum and the groom’s father were cavorting behind their backs.

To add insult to injury, the forbidden lovers eloped ahead of their kids’ nuptials.
It is believed the groom’s dad is a businessman in his late 40s while the bride’s mum is 46 years old.
Apparently, both folks had been friends since their childhood days and neighbours for quite a while.
"They knew each other since they lived in same society. Some of their close friends informed us after they eloped that they had a relationship in the past too. However, Swati got engaged with her current husband in Navsari,” a relative of the parents said.
The 'jilted' children took a painstaking year to plan each detail of their wedding before having to give it all up at the end of the road.
Now, in a weird twist of fate, bride and groom have turned into siblings and marriage would be frowned upon.
