Celebrity couple Shahroz Sabzwari and Sadaf Kanwal recently reveal details about their marriage, work and personal life during an interview with a local news outlet. The two tied the knot last year amidst a storm of controversy surrounding the dissolution of Shahroz’s previous marriage to actor Syra Yousuf, with whom he has a daughter.
On the topic of marriage, Sadaf stated that she has a relatively simple set of ‘rules’ that she believes are the key to a successful marriage.“My rules are very simple. You should consider your husband your husband. He should have a greater status because he is a man.” The model went on elaborate, “He earns and feeds the family. I work also, but I can’t compete with him. I will take care of my kids someday. I can’t be on the same level as him. The way a man can take care of things, a woman can’t. That’s what I believe.”
Following the statement, Shahroz was quick to add his thoughts on the matter. “And what a woman can do, a man cannot. That is the role solely of a woman. Both of them need to understand their place. God has designated particular roles for each. Otherwise, why would God have made two separate kinds of people?”
In support of traditional gender roles, the actor explained, “Men and women think differently. If they both respect each other’s space and their level, that’s equality to me.” He added further, “Some men think they are exceptional husbands and that their wives are not. Then there are women who tell men, ‘I am everything you are.’ I think both of these are extremes. God has given you your place and both of you can excel in your designated roles.”
