India troppo ubriaco per sposarsi: al matrimonio manda il fratello
Gli invitati a un matrimonio, in un paesino dell'India occidentale, hanno deciso che lo sposo era arrivato troppo ubriaco per sposarsi e così la futura moglie è stata fatta maritare con il fratello più sobrio. Lo ha riferito la polizia.

"Lo sposo era ubriaco e si era comportato male con gli ospiti e con la famiglia della sposa", ha spiegato a Reuters Madho Singh, funzionario di polizia, dopo il matrimonio nel villaggio nello stato di Bihar.

Il fratello più giovane si è subito dimostrato pronto a prendere il posto dello sposo accanto alla giovane moglie, su invito della famiglia, secondo quanto hanno riferito testimoni. "Lo sposo si è scusato per il suo comportamento", ha aggiunto Singh al telefono.


This is a funny article that I found on an italian site (www.tiscali.it), more or less it says that this guy from Bihar who was supposed to get married on that day, arrived completely drunk at his marriage. So his family decided that his younger (and sober) brother would get married instead of him (obviously with the same girl).....

Most of the translation is in the OP. Basically, at a marriage in a small village in Western India, the groom turned up wasted.

Here is the translation of the quote from the police... "the spouse was drunk and he had behaved badly with the hosts and with the spouse's family".

SO, they decided to go ahead with the wedding, but with the same girl now marrying the pissed bloke's younger brother (who happened to be sober).

Such is the beauty of an arranged marriage ... it can be re-arranged very quickly.

Talking of which, have you ever translated to another language and back again. It can be a fun passtime; for a few minutes, anyway.

For instance, here are the above 2 sentences, having been to German and back:

Moglie is Italian for wife. Seems that Babel had trouble translating that word, so left it in Italian.
