Woman Bravely Chooses Dog Over Getting Married

Woman Bravely Chooses Dog Over Getting Married

You date, you move in together, you get a dog, you get engaged, you get married, and then you live happily ever after. That’s how it works, right?


Buzzfeed reported that Indian woman Karishma Walia’s family had been planning her arranged marriage when she halted everything because of the dealbreaker of all dealbreakers – dude doesn’t even like dogs. In an act of defiance, she explained, “He would say things like ‘family should be a priority and not career.’ I gave up when he commented about my dog. I don’t know why my family still thinks he’s an eligible bachelor.”

Screw your feelings about arranged marriages in the first place, but arranged marriages with dudes who don’t like man’s best friend? Nah, I think we can all agree that it’s better to remain single forever rather than put up with this type of behavior.

The following text exchange explains her exact feelings on the matter, and I think we can all agree that pups are a lot cooler than pre-nups.

To Karishma, I have to say this – thank you. Thank you for standing up for all that is right in the world and putting your dog before anything else in the world. Right where your dog deserves to be.
