Love at First Sight Leads Woman to Marry Older, Much Shorter Man

Posted on September 14, 2012

In Mumbai, India, the love of Ameena Ahmed Shaikh, 20, and Arif Ibrahim Tambe, 32, was celebrated through marriage a few days ago. However, these lucky two aren’t like most people because apart from their 12-year age gap, their heights, or lack thereof, also made this match special.

Shaikh is five feet tall, while Tambe stands at only two feet.

The bride said it was love at first sight, and that she married him not out of compassion. The moment her brother-in-law introduced her to Tambe, Shaikh decided that she would marry the man right then and there.

“Four months ago, I had gone to his shop to get some songs copied onto my mobile’s memory card. I was bowled over at first sight. Tambe was busy with his work and didn’t give me a second glance. I had heard of him from my brother-in-law, who would often escort him in an auto rickshaw. I decided to marry him then and there,” Shaikh stated.

The news of the marriage came as a shock to Ms. Shaikh’s family at first, but afterward she assured her family of her decision and that they couldn’t say no to the happiness of their child.

“They were initially shocked, but I assured them that he [was] the right choice. As my brother-in-law knows the Tambe family, he initiated the talks,” Shaikh said.
