Fight erupted at a wedding ceremony that took place in Huaian, city of Jiangsu Province on February 15 when a father-in-law forcibly kissed his son’s bride in the presence of all guests and the son himself.

About 8 seconds video clip making the rounds online shows the man leading the bride to the stage and suddenly grabbed her from the back and did what the son was waiting anxiously to do.

He kissed the ‘elegant lady’ as the Master of Ceremonies described her, apparently against her will.

Chinese local media reported that the family posted a note online three days later to explain that the man was drunk at the time and later expressed regret for his action.
