Two frogs were united in holy matrimony in Madhya Pradesh, India, as a grand gesture to appease the Gods responsible for bringing rains to the region, according to Indian media. However, it seems like the wedding only lasted for two months and the two frogs are headed to splitsville because of excess rain in the state.

In July, two frogs got married to please the rain gods.— News18.com (@news18dotcom) September 13, 2019
Now, the nuptials are being called off after excess rain in the state. 🐸https://t.co/2r7OemXUde
Calling off their relationship was the only way to save parts of Madhya Pradesh as they were put under flood alert, which is what lead to the frogs’ "divorce". For all we know, the frogs might go their separate ways, thinking about how their union made a state rain incessantly. Also, that is a pretty impressive thing to put on their resume, if they ever want to apply for a job somewhere.
I hope these frogs can covert water into wine!🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣— Anmol Sarkar 🇮🇳 (@anmol_sarkar02) September 13, 2019
Even though everything about this supposed ritual spells abnormal, some of them have faced severe backlash over the years for treating these animals cruelly and for removing them from their natural habitat. In September, Madhya Pradesh is said to have received an increase in rainfall by 26% and experienced flood-like situations in most parts, while Bhopal recorded 48mm of heavy rainfall. Desperate times do call for desperate measures like they say.
