Speaking to Faking News a close family member of the groom said, “When this girl arrived for the pre-wedding ceremony, the first thing she asked was the WiFi password. When we told her that there was no WiFi, she threw a fit and walked out of the wedding.”

The grooms family is said to have got a temporary WiFi connection and promised to get a separate connection for each room post wedding.

But the bride refused to accept the deal and is planning to tie the knot to a neighboring man with a stronger a better WiFi connection.

Our reporter spoke to Vidya Kumari, the bride who refusal to marry has turned her into a social media superstar. She said, “Bare necessities, is all i am asking for. I mean  i would trade toilets for a WiFi connection any day. If there is no toilet, we can go to the fields. But if there is no WiFi, what do we do? How do I chat on Whatsapp? What about my selfies on Facebook? How am I supposed to update all my apps?”

“When I turned on my WiFi, my device caught the neighbors signal. It was strong and I immediately felt a connection. I don’t care what he looks like as long as he has as good WiFi,” she said confidently.

Vidya’s refusal to marry has sparked off a revolution and given hope to many women across the country who quietly suffer weak WiFi signals. Govt. too seems to be supportive and has already roped in a Bollywood actress to be part of their public service campaign ‘Jahan Wife wahan WiFi‘.

Meanwhile, there were also reports of few employees refusing to join a company as the office premises did not provide free WiFi.
