Joke Hashtag on Twitter Leads Saudi Man to Marriage
Fri 30-08-2013

A hashtag created as a joke on Twitter by Saudi men put one of them in trouble.

The hashtag #قول_لخويك_بطلب_يد_أختك which means: "Ask Your Friend/Brother for His Sister's Hand in Marriage". Where they share screenshots of the conversations between them and their friends to show their reactions.

One Saudi man went with the joke and asked his friend to marry his sister. To his surprise his friend accepted and supported him and even told his father about it.

When he told him he was joking and does not really want to marry his sister, his friend did not take it as a joke and demanded the man to come and marry his sister at once.He even told the man that he will offer him a job. The Saudi man could do nothing but to marry his friend's sister.
