Son Seeks A Groom For His ‘Headstrong & Supportive’ Single Mom, Receives Support & Offers Online


Indian parents are known for being pro-active in finding a suitable match for their children’s wedding, but it is truly heartwarming to see the reverse where children set out to find the perfect partner for a single parent. For instance, a girl named Aastha Verma tweeted about finding a handsome groom for her mom and received praise and support online from everyone.

Following her lead, a 26-year old Redditor contacted her as he too has set out to find a match for his 50-year old mother. However, he discovered that Aastha and her mother haven’t found any luck yet, and “found a load of creeps”.
