The REAL reason why Riya tied the knot

The 36-year-old actor who was last seen in the Lonely Girl, has been with Tewari for a long time. In fact, actor who frequently travels abroad has often shared pictures with her now hubby on her social media handles.

And while love may look like the obvious reason for this holy matrimony, if reports are to be believed Riya is apparently expecting and wanted to tie the knot before she became a mother.

But there is another reason for her to settle down with Tewari, which was revealed earlier by her famous actor mum Moon Moon Sen.

"They need to find boys who are rich"

While speaking with the Times of India (TOI), Sen revealed that both her daughters were "high maintenance," and would only marry a person who can match their expectations.

"Raima likes tall and witty guys, while good looks matter the most to Riya. Money is not important for them as they don't realize its value. But both my girls are high-maintenance, so they need to find boys who are rich, if nothing else," the 63-year-old actress reportedly told TOI.

Well, it looks like love is not the only reason for this marriage, there is clearly more to it than meets the eye. Either way, we wish the happy couple the very best.

But if you're wondering what other attributes attract women towards their husbands other than money, here's what science has to say about that.

20 most desirable attributes in partners

A recent study  has proved that there are "20 most desirable attributes" people seek in their partners.

Interestingly, while it's a widely believed misconception that men and women value completely different things in their spouses, 17 of the 20 traits are shared! 

Generally speaking, this study suggests that most men and women are looking for people who share similar qualities to themselves. In other words, what we look for most in a partner is compatibility.
