Sabbavaram women tie the knot TIMES NEWS NETWORK
Visakhapatnam: Two women entered into wedlock in Sabbavaram, 40 km from the city a few days ago. K Kumari (19) of Anakapalle and Vara Lakshmi (18) got married in a temple a week ago and later exchanged vows.
Lakshmi’s mother and a friend were witness to the marriage. The two met at Sabbavaram when Kumari came to live with her elder sister after her broken marriage and the death of her parents. Kumari’s fondness for Lakshmi grew while they worked together in a church in the area. Though neighbours and families noticed they were very close, they did not suspect anything amiss.
However, when the church people got wind of it, they threw them out following complaints from others. The couple now work in a nursery. While Lakshmi wears the mangalsutram, Kumari is the ‘husband’, locals said.
