Matrimonial ads can be really funny some times. With people's expectations of the brides-to-be being "slim, fair and beautiful" there are some other things that are added along these days. An ideal situation of the union between two people who can live with each other as equal contributing partners, it is far from ideal when it comes to matrimonial ads. A picture of a similar ad that mentions, "Bride must not be addicted to social media" is shared on the internet and it is going viral. People have responded that the guy may remain single forever with such a demand. Girl's Viral Post to Find a Husband For Her Mother Inspires Another Daughter Go Groom Hunting For 56-Year-Old Mom on Twitter.

Tough Criteria

Netizens think that Mr Chatterjee will have to stay single forever with such a "tough" criteria to find a bride. While some said that there's a difference in understanding the necessity and addiction of social media. But these days, almost everyone is addicted to scrolling through the apps, be it WhatsApp, Facebook or Instagram. To find a bride who is away from this does seem difficult. Meanwhile, the criteria for a tall, fair, slim and beautiful remains constant, which also points out to the larger problem in our society of emphasising on skin colour and appearance of a bride.
