“One doesn’t see age in love. It just happens,” said Shumaila.When asked if her parents had any objection to their marriage, the 19-year-old said: “My parents objected for a while but we were able to convince them.”
When Syed asked if people with vast age differences should marry or not, Liaquat said: “There is no question about someone being old or young. Anyone who is legally allowed to marry can marry.” His wife said that personal dignity and honour should be considered before anything else in a marriage.
