Last Saturday, the second of my best friends – the first got married last year only – got engaged last Saturday, and it was story that truly made one believe in true love.
The two of them had been together for almost 10 years now, and to be honest, I never thought that they would work out.
After all, he is a Sunni belonging to a Memon family – who rarely marry out of their community, and the she is a Shia, belonging to
Quetta. I won’t deny it, but we often spoke of them as a helpless couple, with absolouetly no future.
But alas, they proved us all wrong! And actually made it happen!
He fought his family all this time, and then even started standing on his own two feet, so that if and when the time comes, he would be able to support himself if such an occasion arose.
Really modern day Chivalry isn’t it?
She stood by him for all this time, and never once lost hope!
And the two of them together make me want to believe in love and relationships… which in itself is a great feat!
But there was no need for such! One day his father dropped by at the door of my friends house and asked her father for his daughter hand (my friend that is ).
The engagement was a great affair, and the wedding is due September. And I only have the best wishes for the two of them.
May they have a great blessed life!
