Fact Check: The Truth About The Viral Matrimonial Ad Seeking Vaccinated Groom

Amid the ongoing COVID-19 vaccination drive, a newspaper clipping of a matrimonial advertisement of a bride seeking a groom with the condition that he has to be vaccinated has gone viral on social media platforms.

In the advertisement, a self-employed Roman Catholic woman sought an alliance with a man of her faith on the condition that he also is vaccinated like her.

A Facebook user shared the clipping with the caption, “Vaccinated bride seeks vaccinated groom! No doubt the preferred marriage gift will be a booster shot!? Is this going to be our New Normal?”

The image is viral on Facebook with the same claim.

Congress MP Shashi Tharoor also shared the viral ad with the same caption.
