Facebook Matrimony

While most of us use Facebook as a virtual hangout/pastime, a lot of people are using Facebook a groundwork that helps them decide on a life-partner in an arrange Marriage.

So there is no more rotation of bio-data’s and pictures, people just log in to see what the other individual is like, on Facebook! 

A female friend of mine whose parents asked her to look up for a boy’s profile on Facebook, overruled the boy because he used a very tacky line in the “About me” description and his profile picture was very distant, which made her assume that he must be ugly so he does not have the self-assurance for a closer picture.

So what are the dos and don’ts one must follow while dating and considering marraige?

Tips for a successful marriage planned through Facebook.

1. Avoid friending your partner’s cousins and family members. They have a habit of going through your oldest albums and digging up your glorious past.

2. Uncles and aunties above 50 are strict NO for your friend list. They are like silent observers of your news feed, who comment and share only in family gatherings.
3. Avoid calling each other ‘Jannu’ and ‘baby’ before your relationship is out in the open i.e. you family also knows about it. This will avoid the rumour mill at work and deprive your  older cousins from gossiping for few more days.

4. Do not post 24×7 love messages, pictures and videos on your partner’s wall. It’s can get super irritating if not for you then for your friends who unfortunately are forced to witness your sweet nothings day and night.

5. Asking your cousins or friends to start calling the gal/guy whom you have just been introduced ‘jiju’ or ‘bhabhi’ would be an overkill.

6. Do not change your relationship status based on your mood swings e.g. ‘Oh, finally the marriage date is fixed’ — relationship status: Engaged; ‘We had out first argument. She wants pink to be our marriage theme. I want purple!’ — Relationship status: Its complicated.

Facebook is no more as casual as we would like to believe, it’s a platform for people to judge you. If you’re not on Facebook you are considered old fashioned or an alien, and if you are then there is no escaping the judging eyes.
