In a hilarious incident reported from Tamil Nadu, groom’s friend at the wedding made the bride sign a contract allowing him to play cricket every weekend! The groom, a professor, is also the captain of a cricket team called “SuperStar Cricket team”.

Knowing fully well that marriages change dynamics of both bride and groom, the players of the SuperStar team decided to not take a risk and only allowed the couple to get married if the contract was signed by the bride.

According to reports, the groom in question Hariprasad, got married to his bride Pooja earlier on Sunday last week. While all was finalized and agreed upon, there was only one caveat – Hariprasad’s friends wanted him to be available for playing cricket on every weekend. They wanted him so bad that they got a contract made and had the bride sign it before the wedding.

Getting a Rs 20 stamp paper, the friends got a formal note typed out which read – “I, Pooja, hereby allow Hariprasad to play cricket on Saturday and Sunday for the SuperStar Cricket team.” Pooja, who was mostly amused at the strange contract, was seen smiling and laughing at the request

Earlier in July, a similar incident was reported from Guwahati where a couple signed a “only one pizza a month” contract.
