He continued saying “I was courting her for 7 years. Her parents were against our marriage because I was married before and I was a drug addict and ill-tempered man but she never paid any heed to that. Because we were practically living together, so when we moved together it was the most normal thing in the world.”

He further went on to say that the main reason behind his unbreakable bond with his wife is their friendship which is the most important thing.
