The Lahori couple and their wedding stirred a debate on social media, with people expressing their concerns over the couple’s age
Yeah, i watched this in ny insta story. And i thought, its by the insta owner.
While watching, this i was thinking
Boy is so caring, but why is he so young?
Maybe his family forced him to marry. Or his mother needed a bahu to take over responsibilities

Oh… I don't agree, he is not well settled and both are not matured enough to bear the burden of this relationship. Its a beautiful yet complicated relationship one has to compromise a lot and in Teenage you can't understand its importance. Its such a joke

There were quite a few people body shaming Asad for being skinny

Interestingly, though quite a few people came to their defence after all the trolling and appreciated the Lahori couple
These people were of the opinion that it was a positive thing to see a young couple who were sure about their feelings for each other get married, in a legal way.
#Nikah is "Sunnah "
Why we are so judgemental about others?
They have chosen #Nikah not any false means to nurture their sexual desires..
Let them live their own lives and live yours!! #بات_بس_اتنی_سی_ہے pic.twitter.com/Nq9CHRBTXF

People are in a state of twinge, tbh. When their fam/society even our religion doesn't have any objection on this, why is everyone being so judgmental? They're married anyway, BIG DEAL! Let 'em be. They're 18 n above not some under aged minors. Keep your opinions to yourselves. https://t.co/ULpdFNjhSr

After all the intense trolling, the groom’s sister took to social media to defend her bhai and bhabhi
The groom’s sister, Zarpash Khan is a cosmetologist by profession and also a TikTok star.
Giving a shut-up call to all the trolls, Zarpash stated that the marriage was not forced. Instead, the couple and their families happily consented to it. Moreover, she also announced that the newly-weds will move to Oman and continue their studies there.

It’s 2020 and we should let people live their lives in peace. There’s nothing wrong with getting married early or late, as long as you love your partner. A society making peace with insane age differences within the couple should also accept younger people taking decisions for themselves. We extend our heartiest congratulations to the newlyweds.
So what do you think of this wedding? Let us know in the comments below.
