We may love the fictionalised versions of our lives, but true love is what makes the heart grow. Millions of people adore the romantic notion of love stories in which a couple discovers their compatibility at a young age and at first sight. Many of our favourite romantic films and plays have featured these clichés, but for Shahood Alvi and his wife, Saima Shahood, they are a part of daily life.
The couple told their beautiful and lovely love story when they appeared as guests on Nida Yasir’s morning show. Shahood claimed that his wife and Saima fell in love immediately when they first met when she was 13 and he was 14.
For group studies, Shahood used to travel to Saima, a friend’s neighbor. After seeing her, he decided to marry her. Shahood Alvi told his father that he had found his soul mate the very next day. His father originally did not take him seriously because he was only 14 years old, but he subsequently asked his mother to go see who he was referring to. His mother then went to Saima’s house and told Saima’s mother that their daughter would soon become our daughter-in-law. It originally stunned Saima Shahood’s mother, but as they say, the rest is history.
This is Shahood and Saima Alvi’s sweet love story.
