A 55-year-old American woman defies boundaries, marries a Pakistani boy
Elizabeth Mendez and Shahzad Ahmad Khan had been friends on Facebook for over a year. Elizabeth did not want to let nationalities get in the way. She traveled to Pakistan to meet and marry her beau.
It’s also amazing how Elizabeth had made up her mind on Shahzad despite ever having met him. Elizabeth converted to Islam in the local mosque of Shahzad’s residency. Her new name is Maryam Shahzad.
