Two lovers, forbidden to marry by their families, forced to date in secret. But this isn’t Romeo and Juliet. It’s Ali and Zakia, the Afghan couple that risked everything for their love. Today, we’re inviting Dr. Bahar Jalali, professor of Middle Eastern studies, to share the cultural and historical context for this story, and explain how exactly Western media got it wrong.

Get your daily dose of love on LoveStruck Daily, with new love stories every Monday-Friday. In the meantime, follow @LoveStruckDaily on Instagram and Twitter for extra content, and send your love stories to lovestruckdaily@frolic.media.

Wishing you all a very Happily Ever After <3
