In the trending video, the couple exchanged their wedding vows in front of the acting minister when the groom leaned in to kiss his bride.

The video has since sparked major controversy on social media, with internet users expressing outrage at the groom for assaulting his bride during their wedding ceremony.
However, some internet users have claimed that the acting minister told the groom to hit his bride to test her endurance level.
