Man seeks bride “not addicted to social media.”
A matrimonial advertisement seeking a bride who is “not addicted to social media” has created a huge buzz online.
While many matrimonial adverts in the past had been criticised for being regressive and sexist, this one had gone viral for its rather “unusual demand” in an era where most people use at least one social media platform.
The advert was placed in a newspaper by a 37-year-old lawyer. A picture of the advert was shared on Twitter.
The man seeking a prospective bride stated his own age, occupation and place of residence before writing: “Groom seeks fair, beautiful, tall, slim bride. Bride must not be addicted to social media.”
The advertisement had left many citizens wondering how this criteria would be met in a day and age where most people use Facebook, Instagram or Twitter, if not all of them.
