“Sufiyan had fainted after hearing the proposal."
A Pakistani woman fell in love and married her servant after hiring him to help her around her house.
Nazia, a resident of Islamabad, lived alone and needed help around the house.
A friend then recommended Sufiyan, a domestic worker.
Others in the community also recommended the young man, praising him for his work ethic and willingness to help.
Convinced by the glowing reviews, Nazia hired Sufiyan to assist her with daily chores, paying him Rs, 18,000 (£61) a month.
Over time, Nazia grew to like Sufiyan’s habits, demeanour and worldview.
She eventually fell in love with him, stating that it was his simplicity that won her over.
Nazia subsequently asked Sufiyan to move in with her and he accepted her offer.
Whilst living together as lovers, Sufiyan continued to provide domestic help.
One day, Nazia proposed to her servant. According to the woman, Sufiyan was so surprised by the proposal that he fainted.
Nazia recalled: “Sufiyan had fainted after hearing the proposal.
“But he knew to say, ‘I love you, too’.”
The couple eventually married and Nazia stated that she is very happy with her husband.
She also said that Sufiyan has proven to be a valuable worker who also doubles as a lover. Nazia explained that when she is feeling unwell, he tends to her needs, brings her medicine and cooks.
Nazia compares her husband to Salman Khan while Sufiyan calls her his “Katrina Kaif”.
Nazia revealed that she was the one who fell in love first before Sufiyan reciprocated those feelings.
She said that when it comes to their relationship, appearance and money are not important. Nazia said she liked Sufiyan because of his good nature.
Prior to their marriage, the couple were subjected to criticism by some members of the public.
It is believed that much of the criticism was directed at the fact that they were living together before marriage.
Despite the hate, the couple ignored it and stuck together throughout.
The couple remains happy and Nazia says that she might transfer ownership of her house to her husband in the future.
