Marriage is a beautiful thing. If done right, it is the closest thing to a “happily ever after” in real life. But unfortunately, the thing about real life is that marriages take work. Sometimes it doesn’t work out between the two people, even if they happen to be Pakistani celebrities.

In reality everything beautiful has its scars, and people do tend to part ways before death pulls them apart.

Pakistani celebrity couples too aren’t immune to this. They may be talented, gorgeous and rich, all the points that you want on a checklist for ‘an ideal partner’. But even then, marriage doesn’t always work out and they have to deal with the heartbreak that follows after a divorce.

Here’s a list of Pakistani celebrity couples who got divorced.
