Featured Couple: Murtaza and Irum
I was on Shaadi.com for about a year and a half, but never really came across the right person. I always felt that I would be compromising if I agreed to marry any of them. I was quite confused about how to take things ahead on this matrimonial site and continued looking for the right match. On 9 August, 2009, I finally came across Murtaza’s profile on Shaadi.com and that’s when our story began. We started meeting in parks and played like kids enjoying every minute.
The excitement and attraction for each other kept growing with time. We also discovered that we shared the same surname and date of birth (just the month and date). We soon fell in love even though we didn’t admit it, but we did inform our families and they were excited too. He proposed to me over a bridge at an amazing restaurant and we finally got married on 12 December, 2009. We have been married for over two years now and it’s been a great journey so far.
We’re still in love as much as back then, and can’t stop thanking Shaadi.com for bringing us together. For those of you who don’t believe there is someone out there for you, trust me there is! You just have to find them and if Shaadi.com can help you do that, go for it! Don’t ever give up!
