‘Must be fair, must not be a TikToker’, Twitterati reacts to problematic matrimonial ad
These people come with their own opinions and suggestions, creating a long list of marital requirements.
In Pakistan, marriages are not only seen as a union between a husband and a wife but also as an alliance between their respective families. Considering this, many family members are involved in bringing two supposedly compatible people together in matrimony.
These people come with their own opinions and suggestions, creating a long list of marital requirements. Any future wedding discussions are considered only if a man or a woman fits the long list of prerequisites. Mostly, this list tends to fall on the shoulders of women in Pakistani society.
Recently, a Twitter user took to the social platform to share a screenshot of a problematic matrimonial advertisement. The user pointed out that among other requirements, the ad listed:
The girl “must not be TikToker” and “must not be a feminist”.
The requirements list did not just end there. The matrimonial ad went on to state:
The girl should “love and respect parents”, “should be mature and a graduate”, and “maximum age should be 21”.
Here is the problematic matrimonial ad:
Was having a fine ass today without reading anything that would piss me off till I came across this screenshot of a Rishta ad. Idk whether to laugh or cry.
"maximum age 21" Tou minimum kya hai? 16? Ok pedo. pic.twitter.com/LEFB6buRaW

People should order china to make girls according to their desires because they want a robot in the body of a girl. According to them, girls are not human and they should be mature, educated, with lots of money, without goals, fair, beautiful, tall, can tolerate every violence, https://t.co/9JHRGBVcFm
