She was recently in talks to get into an arranged marriage with a guy from a well-to-do family in New Delhi.

However, after the guy said Lucy – Walia's dog – would be a problem, she swiftly told him that the marriage was most definitely off.

"My mom thought he's an excellent match because he's good-looking and well-off," Walia told BuzzFeed. "There was a lot of family pressure, and they still think I did the wrong thing by raising the concern about my dog."


"He would say things like 'family should be a priority and not career'," Walia said. "I gave up when he commented about my dog. I don't know why my family still thinks he's an eligible bachelor."

"I have been talking to him for over a week now. I spoke to him couple of times more, and he pissed me off with the way he was enforcing his decisions on me."
