The woman took the leap because it’s believed she would pass along a curse to the animal.
18-year-old Mangli Munda lives in a village Jharkland, India. She told The Daily Mail reports Munda said, “I am marrying a dog because the village elders believe that my evil spell will be passed on to the dog.
“After that is done, the man I will marry will have a long life,” she concluded.
Her father Sri Amnmunda added, “the village elders told us that we should organize the wedding as soon as we can. We had to make sure that the evil spell is destroyed.”
The stray dog, which looked rather confused, was driven to the ceremony in a limo.
Since the marriage wasn’t legally binding the dog was allowed to go on with its life later in the day, and the “bride” will not spend her time looking for a real guy.
“Every girl dreams of marrying a prince. I am waiting for him to come," she said.
