Age certainly isn’t one of those barriers when it comes to love. Such love stories have historical precedents, and in the present day, they occasionally surface on social media. In a recent report, a 19-year-old and a couple in their 70s were married in Pakistan. Here is the complete narrative.
The internet has once again been drawn to Syed Basit Ali’s latest love story, which he posted to YouTube. The YouTuber has developed a sizable fan base on the video-sharing website by showcasing the love tales of numerous original Pakistani couples.
He frequently includes couples with a significant age gap in his videos. He also enjoys conversing with individuals from other professions or walks of life who, despite what society may believe, are somehow able to coexist. This time, the tale concerns a Pakistani man in his 70s who wed a young woman of 19. People’s interest has been piqued by the unusual love story of a 19-year-old woman and a 70-year-old man.
The couple is now married without fearing the age gap as the man believes “he is very young at heart.”
Age doesn’t matter in love
Needless to say, the age gap of 49 years was not a problem for the couple, as they are now happily married. When asked about her views on it, Shumaila said, ” One doesn’t see age in love. It just happens.” However, the woman’s parents had reservations about the marriage, but her love for Ali overcame those reservations, and they are now on board. “My parents objected for a while but we were able to convince them,” she added.
