The online matrimonial sites are online platform for finding grooms and brides based on certain specified criteria. Any person can register to the sites, search grooms/ brides just by scrolling up and down the desktop or mobile screen. The filters also include weight, height, skin complexion which seems to be racist and mode of body shaming. Moreover, the information entered by any person is self declared. Say for example, a married man with kids can claim to be never married. The sites don’t verify such authenticity of information. There are also facility to shortlist profiles which is similar to ‘adding to wishlist’ or ‘add to cart’ concept of any e-commerce site. When any party meets another party offline through these sites, the closure of the deal is not finalised online. This creates a confusion for the party who is considered as waitlisted candidate. This becomes a mental agony to such candidate who doesn’t get closure and keeps on assuming. These sites have become an e-commerce business of brides and grooms, where human beings are objectified. Since the sites deal with living human beings, the sites must take care of the fake profiles, profiles with false information, humiliation of human sentiments while negotiations are carried. The sites cannot be an easy way of earning money as a service provider. The sites have to remember that human can’t be treated like products.
