I just saw this in the news papper that a indian girl (Hindu) that was force to marry a dog or frog, why ? I know its a religioes thing but still … dont really understand And if thats the case does the girls really have to take care of the animals they marry ? could they marry a man later or must they stay with the animal untill death do the part ?

In some villages, this happens every year, so it’s not all that unusual. In one case in 2003, a girl was married to a stray dog. The reasons vary slightly from place to place, but most ceremonies are meant to bestow good luck, to keep disease at bay, or to drive off evil spirits (as in the case of the dog). The girls lead perfectly normal lives afterward, are allowed to marry men later, and the frogs are always simply turned loose into the pond in which they were found.

It might seem a little bizarre, but then, most religious ceremonies are weird when you get down to it. Sprinkling water on a baby to make sure it gets into heaven when it dies? Weird. Drinking God’s blood? Weird.
