I now pronounce you…

Man and mastiff.

A superstitious man in India married a dog earlier this month in attempt to lift a curse from his life.

Fifteen years ago, he stoned two dogs to death. While a dog’s wrongful death in the area where I live could result in a hefty fine/lawsuit/really bad attention, dogs in India apparently have the ability to put curses on people. After having committed his crimes against the animals, he lost hearing in one ear and also became paralyzed somehow.

In order to lift this curse which has plagued him ever since, he accepted a local dog’s paw in marriage, hoping this act of…love…would atone for his sins.

The happy couple.

Well, he seems sincere. As bad as it is to mistreat animals, I’m glad to see he’s turned around. I hope that his life improves from here.

I wouldn’t count on it though…I hear his wife’s a real–you know what? You get the idea.

I’m going to go stand in the corner.

    Now if his hearing returns and his paralysis disappears, I really am going to be scared…

    In India there are present loads of superstitions of these kind. They are brought into practice just to keep away people from hurting animals. But in small villages, even today people practice.

    If his hearing returns and his paralysis disappears, we have a wonderful example of the power of psychosomatic illness. The power of the mind is phenomenal. Believe you are possessed by a demon, and you will behave as if you are. Would that belief then really be a possession? What is the difference, really?

    Hopefully he will appreciate the joys of marriage without ending up in jail.
