Tennis star Aisamul Haq’s marriage that broke many hearts is close to an unexpected end, Express News reported on Sunday. However, Haq’s father Ihtishamul Haq Qureshi refuted the media reports. 

Express News quoted family sources as saying that differences between Haq and wife Faha Akmal, has led to the couple deciding to part ways. They added that Haq has couriered divorce papers to Akmal, who is currently residing in London.

The sources said that the marriage was dotted by “issues” ever since the couple had gotten married.

Akmal and Haq, who were engaged for six months prior to their wedding, could not get along well. The couple stayed together in Haq’s Lahore residence for some time following which Akmal had been living in London, with her parents. Haq used to visit Akmal.

The decision of separation was mutual.

Pakistan tennis star Haq had tied the knot with Akmal in December, 2011, at an elaborate ceremony in Lahore.

    Really shocking news! They seemed like a very nice couple with nothing but pure love for each other. It’s easy to get married but hard to stay married sometimes.
    I wish them the very best in the future.

    It’s sad and disgusting to see many girls on social media jumping in joy at the news of aisam’s divorcing his wife.Women who follow around men blindly like submissive slaves are a big disgrace to their own gender.No matter what kind of person the man is,weak,low self-esteem women seem ever ready to humiliate themselves for the man.

    All divorces are sad, and each have their own specific reasons. Here we had a sportsman and a highly educated woman from a highly respected and highly educated family. I suppose in the end it was a matter of two very different persons from two very different cultural backgrounds. Sad all the same. Wish both of them well.

    Big deal ….

    I guess it was their destiny.Whatever the case might be,one thing we can learn from this episode is that people should try to marry in their own locality and community. I don’t know why Aisam went for this girl.He could have found way more educated and beautiful girl in Pakistan with same upbringing. Why need to import brides ….

    Lastly,I have seen many comments stating that she was highly educated. Big whoop. She was an ordinary , average girl with an average set of academic credentials.You will find these types of girls all over in major cities of Pakistan.I don’t know why people have to use this term i.e “highly educated” , whenever they see a women who have been to some university in the west. Inferiority complex ??

    First girls get attracted to glamour of ‘Celeb hubby’ , later they mourn over less attention due to busy schedule – all comes with the package !
    especially if they are BBCDs , even more complicated ( as i naadha teetar , aadha batair)
    as far as confirmation, Asiam’s sister has removed her face book profile picture as a mouning gesture. So no more confirmation required, its sad but I think it happened on right time.
    and all those asking that Media shouldnt be making hype out of it, excuse me but when you get you wedding covered from beauty parlour to joota chhupayee live on TV , then again divorce coverage of ‘Celebs’ comes wit hthe package , all over the world….
    be it Meera, Tom Cruise or Kim Kardishian ….

    Its not a personal matter. He is our Pakistani brother, we love, care and pray for him. He involved us in his wedding. Therefore he must tell us the reason, so that we (the public) learn from it. The reasons cited by Faha are all lies. Everyone knows that world class players travel all over the globe and they cannot give enough time to their spouses and families. Tell us the truth please?

    He could not last even for six months with his married wife, but could survive much longer with his counterpart on the court, the other guy who lasted with him, must be a thorough gentleman, flexible, adaptive and accommodating. why we lack these basic human qualities ?
    I think it is genes that makes all the difference. we need to exchange this commodity with more weddings with those who have sober and flexible and adaptive genes. this might work and we may last longer in every field.
