In Love there is no Age bar, no caste bar.. (*-*) - Happy Married Life - love is feel her

Shahrukh- Gauri- The Real Love Story..they are one happily married couple, as happy as any marriage can be. SRK being a Muslim and his decision of marrying Gauri, whom he had met in 1984, was indeed a tough task to accomplish. But on August 26 their marriage was finally solemnised in the court and after that they lived happily ever after like a fairy tale.

The duo has been together for almost 10 years now and still they seem much in love. Malaika, known for her oomph and the seductress factor states that Arbaaz has always been supportive of her decisions and that's the reason they have been together for so many years now. They tied the knot in a Christian style wedding on December 12, 1998.
Religious differences have never been a barrier among Bollywod's famous couples, have a look at the marriage between the highly popular Hrithik Roshan and the beautiful Suzanne Khan. When Hrithik Roshan fell in love, he had glimpsed Suzanne Khan at a traffic light and his heart had lurched. Heart-throb Hrithik Roshan married his sweetheart in a private ceremony marked by Hindu and Muslim rites.
Actor Sanjay Dutt married Manyata according to Hindu rituals in the presence of family and friends in Mumbai. For both of them it was their third marriage. Manyata¢s original name was Dilhaaz Shaikh. She too has been married and divorced three times in the past. But no matter what opposition he gets from the family the happy look on Sanjay Dutt¢s face was not to be missed. And we do wish the happy couple a successful marriage this time.
When stories of Mohammad Azharuddin seeing Sangeeta Bijlani made news in 1994, people were shocked. He was married to Naureen and Sangeeta was dating Salman Khan. The two denied their affair vehemently. However, in 1996, Azharuddin divorced his wife and married Sangeeta.
Aamir Khan fell in love with Kiran Rao on the set's of Lagaan and they married on December 28, 2005 at a simple civil ceremony at Bandra Registration office. This was Aamir¢s second marriage after he divorced his first wife Reena.
One wedding just wasn't enough for Elizabeth Hurley and her Indian husband Arun Nayar. Following the couple's wedding in England, the happy couple came to Jodhpur, where they were married in a traditional Hindu ceremony.
Getting married to Delnaz is one of the happiest moments in Rajiv Paul's life. He says that "If there is no love there would be no relationship. I love Delnaz for what she is and I like her because she loves me for what I am." A perfect pair very much in love, we must say.
Sohail Khan had sent Bollywood into a state of shock by his marriage. On the day of his movie, Pyar Kiya To Darna Kya released, he eloped with Seema Sachdev in true film style but the marriage took place only after a week. Since the girl was a Punjabi, they first had an Arya Samaj wedding and later in the evening there was a nikaah. Sohail's family accepted it with grace and goodwill.
