Why is this WordPress comments form not submitting?

I am trying to use the Bootstrap validator to validate the comments in WordPress, as it's a lot nicer than the default WordPress error system. The Jquery validation works nicely, but the form won't submit and post the fields to the wp-comments.php file. Any suggestions?


Functions.php
Code:
<?php




function add_theme_scripts() {
  wp_enqueue_style( 'style', get_stylesheet_uri() );

 
  wp_enqueue_script( 'script', get_template_directory_uri() . '/js/nucleare.js', array ( 'jquery' ), 1.1, true);

    if ( is_singular() && comments_open() && get_option( 'thread_comments' ) ) {
      wp_enqueue_script( 'comment-reply' );
    }
}
add_action( 'wp_enqueue_scripts', 'add_theme_scripts' );





remove_filter('widget_text_content', 'wpautop');




if ( ! function_exists ( 'nucleare_entry_footer' ) ) {
 function nucleare_entry_footer() {
    // Hide category and tag text for pages.
    if ( 'post' == get_post_type() ) {
        /* translators: used between list items, there is a space after the comma */
        the_tags( '<span class="tags-links"><i class="fa fa-tags space-right"></i>', esc_html__( ', ', 'nucleare' ), '</span>' );
    }

    edit_post_link( __( 'Edit', 'nucleare' ), '<i class="material-icons">
create
</i>', '</span>' );
}
    }
add_filter( 'comment_form_defaults', 'wpsites_comment_form_defaults' );
function wpsites_comment_form_defaults( $defaults ) {

    $defaults['title_reply'] = __( 'Comments' );
    $defaults['label_submit'] = __( 'Submit comment', 'custom' );
    return $defaults;
}
