Melbourne, Feb 4 (ANI): An online scheme is offering single guys the chance to get a taste of marriage before they go through with the real thing by letting them choose a "virtual wife".
Bachelors who sign up to the site can choose between four different types of partner: devoted homemaker, control freak, shopping and soap opera obsessive or ambitious banker, the Daily Telegraph reported.
Bachelors who subscribe then receive automated phone messages from their virtual lady, thereby helping them make an informed decision when the time comes to find a real wife.
They can choose Ritu Homemaker, aged 23, who asks her husband to "please eat your lunch, I have made your favourite dish", or 25-year-old Electricity Thakur, who is described as "dominating" and "bossy", threatening to "send your bed to the office if you don't leave soon".
Another choice is Milli Naughty, a 21-year-old excitable secretary in a multinational firm, whose life revolves around shopping trips and neighbourhood gossip.
Lastly, 26-year-old Shalini From the City is an ambitious, tech-savvy banker who purrs the likes of "we'll totally connect, honey".
The aim of the website's creators, Bharat Matrimony, is for bachelors to follow up their virtual fun by signing up with the parent site to find an actual wife. (ANI)
