Life sometimes takes unexpected turns and that is definitely true in my case. Some months ago I ran into Qurat-ul-Ain by chance and that one event has changed my life forever. Ever since that initial meeting this smart, beautiful, kind, reflected, headstrong woman has been the most important person in my life. Taking a cue from Beyonce I decided that since I liked it I should put a ring on it ;) , so last weekend I proposed to Qurat-ul-Ain and she actually said yes :)


My fiancee Qurat-ul-Ain

We haven’t set a date for the wedding yet, but we hope it do so this weekend, we do already know however that the ceremony/celebrations will take place in Lahore where Qurat-ul-Ain got her family.

So when you read this Qurat-ul-Ain, do know I love you deeply and I look forward to sharing my life with you and the family we will create together.

Congratulations, pal! I had no idea!

As a man who fell helplessly in love with a woman and married her quickly, I know exactly how you feel. My congratulations to you, and my condolences to Qurat-ul-Ain. :P
