You must know a lot of cinematic and crazy love stories, but have you ever heard of a Bihar man and a German woman falling in love and getting married? Satyendra Kumar from Bihar and Larissa Benz from Germany recently got married in Nawada district, Bihar. According to a report by India Today, Larissa and Satyendra were researchers in Germany. Larissa was working on prostate cancer and Satyendra was researching skin cancer. They started talking to each other in 2019 and then gradually fell in love. During these three years, they decided to get married. They were only able to get married in 2022 because of Covid-19. But, as soon as the environment became conducive, they got married.

While her parents were unable to attend their wedding due to visa approval issues, Larissa came to India on a special visa to get married. She was so moved by Indian customs and rituals that she married in an Indian-style wedding with all of Satyendra’s family and villagers as witnesses. Satyendra’s parents were delighted to have a daughter-in-law who was not Indian.

Satyendra is the son of Vishnudev Mahato and Shyama Devi and resides in Berota. The family threw a party for the village on March 5 to celebrate the marriage. The guests were also very supportive of the wedding and said the world was changing and it was time for people to change too.

Larissa did not know Hindi except for a few words and said that Satyendra translated words and phrases for her. She was also unfamiliar with marriage laws in India, but cooperated with all family members and followed instructions, as she was very keen for the wedding to be held Indian style. Larissa even wore a red and blue Lehenga with heavy traditional jewelry and looked stunning in all the different ceremonial outfits.
