We’ve all heard about the stories like Heer Ranjha, Romeo Juliet, Sheeri Farhad, and many other classic love stories in which the two lovers had to wait for days or months to see each other. They describe how difficult it was to wait just to see a glimpse of each other or to receive a single letter after waiting for weeks.
From Mughal-e-Azam to Maine Pyar Kiya, love letters have played an important role in making love stories successful.
Then came the mobile phone. It revolutionized everything, including love. It removed the waiting part from the love stories. It even introduced us to some of the new words like Janu, Babu, etc.
And if anything was left out, it was fulfilled by the introduction of smartphones. They really made reaching out to each other like a piece of cake. So easy, that it has started raining ‘inter-cultural marriages’ in Pakistan. It is like, you wake up every morning and get to know that another Pakistani has married a foreigner. All thanks to the smartphones.
We have these recent examples of couples who met online on social media websites and decided to marry across the 7 seas.
But let’s take an example of these two.
