Arthur Brooks‘s patience had run out waiting on his 48-year-old son to get married, so he took matters into his own hand.

Brooks, 78, place a $900 full-page ad for a wife for his son in the newspaper, the New York Daily News reported.

“I am looking for a wife who is ready, willing and able to have children as soon as possible,” read the ad in the Coeur d’Alene Press.

And while desperate, Brooks proved he wasn’t altogether crazy by including certain stipulations.

Along with a requested age range of 34 to 38, Brooks said Mrs. Right should be just that, a politically conservative stay-at-home mom.

“If you voted for Obama or plan to vote for Hillary you are not for me,” the ad declared.

The only trouble is, he never told his son, Baron, who lives in Salt Lake City. Turns out, Baron learned of the scheme only when his cell phone suddenly lit up like a Christmas tree. Among the many calls was a reporter who tipped him off about the ad.

“This is so crazy, I can’t even tell you,” he told the Daily News. “It’s very embarrassing and humiliating.”

Baron said his father still plans to interview potential candidates, but his meddling could have already circumvented the natural process.

“I was seeing a new girl in Salt Lake and when she found out about the ad, she cancelled and wants nothing to do with me,” he said.
