Would you reject a marriage proposal if your potential spouse doesn’t accept your pet? The story of an arranged marriage between a woman in Bangalore and a prospective husband in New Delhi has gone viral after a conversation came up about her dog and whether that dog would be a part of the family, should the couple marry.
Karishma Walia who works in Gurgaon recently received a proposal of marriage from a family in New Delhi. Karishma and the man had a conversation on Twitter, with the man stating he didn’t intend to allow a dog to come between him and his wife, and certainly a dog wouldn’t be sharing their marriage bed.
Thankfully, the couple had a good conversation on the topic of pet ownership before any legal documents were signed. Which is good, as this would likely have caused many more problems in their future.
Most of the comments online are in favor of the two not marrying, since pet ownership, whether it be a dog, cat or other beloved creature, is important. At least to the person who loves that pet. Sometimes we don’t realize we’re the whole world for our cat or dog. While they may only be in our lives for a decade or two, we mean everything to them. It’s not fair to have to rehome a pet because someone comes into our life who doesn’t want that pet around. Agreed?
