The young man identified as Naeem Shahzad went viral on the internet for his marriage to 70-year-old Mary from Canada, and social media was after him labeling him a gold digger.
Naeem revealed they met in 2012 on Facebook, and after 2015 the two began talking about getting married, and finally, they tied the knot in 2017.
