Love is a special emotion that holds a sacred place in every individual’s heart. However, when it comes to marriage, the very tenet of love begins to take an altogether different shape as it not only culminates the coming together of the couple but also brings two very different families altogether. Unfortunately, not all love stories reach their culmination in a happily ever after and break apart in the most trifle of a storm. Nevertheless, there are a few selected people who take the brave step and decide to give love a second chance.
