We have come across many matrimonial ads that are absolutely hilarious (both intentionally and unintentionally). For instance, how Twitter previously roasted a matrimonial ad of Noida’s “industrial effluent” boy seeking a ‘fair’ bride, or how a Bengali lawyer sought a bride NOT addicted to social media.
Now, a Twitter user named @awryaditi found another hilarious ad that has grabbed many eyeballs. The newspaper snippet seeks a match for an “opinionated feminist” girl who works in the “social sector against capitalism”. As for the requirements from the potential suitor, it states a preference for an “only son with bungalow/at least 20-acre farmhouse”. The advert humorously ends with the contact e-mail written as “[email protected]”.

4. Some people didn’t find this surprising considering how real matrimonial ads are sometimes even more bizarre.
Tbvh, it doesn't seem bizarre for all the ads we have been seeing all our life.😂 https://t.co/Fkm0lEf8Bf

I’m surprised that newspaper matrimonial ads are still a thing.
