You Go Girl!

An Indian bride has walked out of her wedding ceremony after her groom-to-be failed to solve a simple math problem, police said Friday.
The bride tested the groom on his math skills and when he got the sum wrong, she walked out.
The question she asked: How much is 15 plus 6?
His reply: 17.
The incident took place late Wednesday in Rasoolabad village near the industrial town of Kanpur in northern Uttar Pradesh state, local police officer Rakesh Kumar said Friday.
The groom’s family tried persuading the bride to return, but she refused. She said the groom had misled them about his education.
“The groom’s family kept us in the dark about his poor education,” said Mohar Singh, the bride’s father. “Even a first-grader can answer this.”

I've often told my female students to ask to see the report cards of the males who seek to obtain their telephone numbers or who ask them out on a date. Along with the recommendation I have also shared with the young ladies that they have to be up to par or on point as well when they make that request. I've shared with the girls that they ought to have some standards set for the person they select to date and not for them to just select any old body just because they are "cute,"  have nice muscles or are the "bad boy." 

After hearing about and reading the story above about the young lady from India, all I could say was "You Go Girl! Something to critically think about.  Hear The Critical Thinker live each Saturday at 6:00 a.m. ET as the host of The Reading Circle on You are invited to follow along on Twitter @thinkcritical01 and @readingcircle01.
