1. They met each other on the internet through Facebook.

2. Emily worked as a health coordinator from Montana. After a countless online interaction, they fell in love.

3. Communicating with each other was the biggest obstacle; they didn’t know each other’s language. Google translator came to their rescue.

This is what Hitesh has to say:

Neither of us knew each other’s language so I would copy and paste her messages using Google Hindi translation to understand what she was trying to say. I would then compose my own message in Hindi, translate into English and then send it to her.

4. This escalated to video chatting. This went on for a year and then finally, Emily decided to meet Hitesh in person.

And that’s when Emily came to meet him in person. She came to Ahmedabad and right after meeting him in person, decided to tie the knot.

The marriage took place according to Hindu rituals.

Like any Indian family, Hitesh’s parents were skeptical of Emily as Hitesh’s life partner. But, eventually, they also understood that the American found love off social media.

Hitesh fell in love with her innocence and simplicity. Here is what he said:

When we met in person for the first time, I fell in love with her simplicity and innocence. She was so much in love with me that she even decided to learn Indian cooking.

Emily was ecstatic being dressed up in traditional bride’s sari and commented:

I liked his innocence and simplicity. He never tries to hide anything from me. This is why I decided to to marry him.

The sweet couple has honeymoon plans too. They will go to the USA and after that will settle in India.

A beautiful love story, isn’t it?

True love transcends all boundaries and barriers, indeed!
