Lockdown no bar: Mumbai boy ties knot with Delhi girl online
MUMBAI: For 29-year-old Mumbai-based merchant navy officer, Preet Singh, and Delhi girl, Neet Kaur, April 4 was supposed to mark the end of a year-long, long-distance relationship and the start of an exciting new life together.
Not allowing the lockdown to play spoilsport, the couple stuck to the date and, in a unique ceremony performed over a video calling app, they accepted each other as life partners with the blessings of both families and friends who had logged in from as far as Dubai, Canada and Australia.
Dressed in wedding finery, their families even broke into a dance at the end of the ceremony and congratulatory speeches that lasted two hours.
“We were heartbroken because we had been planning the wedding for six months. But every cloud has a silver lining and we found ours too,” said Preet, adding Neet will move in with him when the lockdown ends.
The couple met online a year ago and started dating soon after. Preet said they decided to get married within six months. Preet said he came up with the idea of going ahead with the wedding and it was not difficult to convince their families to come on board.
“Since it will not be safe to have a large gathering even after the lockdown is lifted, we decided to go ahead with the wedding,” Preet said. His bachelor party in Goa was already cancelled and the honeymoon in Sri Lanka also had to be postponed.
The couple picked 11.30 am as it was convenient for everyone who attended from across the globe. “Our original guest list of around 150 had to be trimmed down to 50. Once we were ‘virtually wedded’, guests helped themselves to chocolates they had kept ready. This was followed by a dance session,” he added.

Good, new innvotions with zero expenses.
This would be followed by honeymoon too.
Family dancing during on line marriage is against guidelines, they should wore PPE and keep distance

Such online marriages are happening all over the world and soon we shall also see online divorces . I wish this couple the very best of happiness in life
They gone mad
Sorry to say, this online marriage doesn't have any legal validity.
Does the guy still have his job?
online marriage great,what about the rest like first night
it would be online first night.
Is it that necessary to marry for survival or is it a womanizer?
Wish you a happy married life!!
Does it mean this leads to virtual honeymoon?
is it possible to make kids also by this new method.
Yes. Frozen dads are common in USA. You may call it invetro fertilization. Both men and women in this age can have their sperms or eggs frozen for a long period of time; in some cases many years.
Is this allowed as registered marriage?
I don't think so. Marriage Photographs are a must to prove the solemnation of the marriage. They have made it a joke
