Shamin Baal is a Muslim living in Birmingham.

She married Ali Najaf two years ago when she was 26,

six weeks after    him only once.

"I didn't go out on    with boys. Although my parents have adopted some

aspects of western  , and my father wanted me to have a career and be

financially  , he considered it his responsibility to find me a 

husband. But he would never have arranged my marriage  . My parents

organised the introductions, but the    decision was mine".

"I    on someone with a good family  , higher education, a

  of humour and the ability to communicate. These things    forever,

while romance and physical attraction soon fade!! My father thought I was being

unrealistic!! 'This isn't a fairy tale', he said. 'Mr. Wonderful isn't going to drive up here in a

white Mercedes'. But I couldn't learn to    for anyone ordinary".

"I'd seen several men when Ali was introduced to me. We    very well

immediately and I knew I wanted to    my life with him. Neither of us had ever

been with anyone else, so we didn't need to feel    of previous relationships.

Love grew as we got to know each other. I definitely    the right choice when

I picked Ali".

(Aunque arreglada) una bonita historia de amor !!
