Today we live in a generation where both women and men need to have a certain education qualification before getting married. One reason is they are both well secured in the tough job market, providing financial security to their home. Also, basic education helps in everyday key conversation, and planning required to make the marriage work. Some may also say that being educated and knowing fluent English is a class symbol for society.

Education is necessary for Bihar Girl
On an auspicious day, the union took an unexpected turn when the bride rejected the groom for not knowing English. “Main Nahi Karungi Shaadi (I won’t marry him)”, says the Bihar girl. The bride is well educated and finishing her degree in B.Ed. whereas the groom doesn’t know how to read or write. The bride asks if someone can be ever happy knowing that her husband cannot speak English. She has tried conveying her objection regarding marriage to her father, but he is tempted by money and property.
The bride wants somebody who is as educated as she is and must support each other shoulder to shoulder. The reporter tries to put some sense in her mind by saying that he can also manage the household, and she should accept him. But the bride sticks to her decision, saying -” Nahi karungi toh nahi karungi (No means No)”.
Some netizens believe that she did the right thing by not choosing him at the same time, some are saying all of these are for an egotism status.
