Cross-Border Love Story: Netizens are once again captivated by the awe-inspiring tale of yet another cross-border marvel, following the remarkable love stories of Seema Haider and Anju.
The story of uniting with soulmates across borders continues to take social media by storm.
Now, Arbaaz, son of a civil contractor from Jodhpur, Rajasthan, married Amina, a resident of Pakistan, through video conferencing.
The virtual marriage was solemnized with all traditional customs and rituals by Qazis from both India and Pakistan on Wednesday night.
Despite the tensions between the two countries, Mohammad Afzal, Arbaaz's father, expressed happiness over the union, saying that relations between the families on both sides are flourishing.
He revealed that the paperwork for Amina's visa application will soon be initiated, and once approved, she will be able to come to India as the new bride.
The groom's father also highlighted the benefits of online weddings for ordinary families like theirs, where expenses are minimized, and the wedding can be solemnized without much fuss.
He eagerly awaits Amina's arrival to give her a warm welcome into the family.
Arbaaz, who does video editing work with advocacy, shared that theirs is an arranged marriage, where relatives finalized the alliance. Due to visa complexities, they opted for an online wedding.
Arbaaz said that if they had married in Pakistan, their marriage would not have been recognized in India. They would have to get married again after coming back to India.
Now, they are planning to apply for a visa with their Indian marriage certificate, which will make the process easier.
Also in May, a Pakistani woman who married a Jodhpur man online has finally reached her in-laws' place in the city after a six-month-long separation.
Overcoming the geographical barriers, the bride managed to reach Jodhpur from Pakistan through the Wagah border.
