Composing a matrimonial ad can be a bit tricky but if few details are kept in mind, good numbers of responses are generated. A Patro-Patri (matrimonial) ad should be composed in such a manner that the audience can get a vivid overview of the bride or groom. The ad text should mention the background details of family and education. It is also a norm for Bengali matrimonial ads to mention the ancestral background whether East Bengal (EB) or West Bengal (WB). Apart from that, the ad text may contain the details of religion, caste, food preference, profession, age and physical structure. A short detail about the partner wanted is mandatory. Preferably, astrological and horoscope details can also be added.
