Marriage is often sensed as a beautiful union, a journey towards a "happily ever after" in real life. However, the complexity of real-life relationships means that marriages require effort, understanding, and compromise.

In the realm of Pakistani celebrity marriages, there have been instances where love stories have ended far too soon, leaving us both surprised and saddened. Here are five Pakistani celebrity marriages that concluded prematurely.

Five Pakistani celeb's marriages that ended too soon:

However, Asad Siddiqui and Maham Babar's love story took an unexpected and challenging turn just two years into their marriage, in 2016. The decision to part ways was a mutual one, arrived at after careful consideration by both individuals.
