Wasim Akram Wedding With Australian Women

 Former Pakistani cricketer Wasim Akram, 47, is set to marry Aussie Shaniera Thompson, 30. She is a public relations consultant. She has converted to Islam and will call Pakistan home after the wedding, reports Herald Sun. Pakistani celebrities, both men and women, are famous for choosing life partners beyond the country's borders. In the 1980s, Lollywood actress Bindiya married a Jordanian tycoon.

A Pakistani Harvard student married the daughter of Saudi Arabia's oil policy architect A. Z. Yamani, and the daughter of a Pakistani woman diplomat married the former Crown Prince of Jordan. Imran Khan married heiress Jemima Goldsmith, and Princess Diana had a crush for years on a Pakistani physician based in Washington, Dr. Hasnat Khan. Former foreign minister Z. A. Bhutto married an Iranian lady, his son married A Syrian, and his other son married an Afghan.

Former President Ayub Khan had an affair with Jacquelyn Kennedy. On the not-so-flattering-side, former US secretary of state Condoleezza Rice said former prime minister Shaukat Aziz tried to seduce her during a meeting, and a British journalist claimed Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif tried to do the same with her. Statistics show Pakistanis are very cosmopolitan when it comes to marriage. Official records show Pakistani men and women have spouses in all five continents.
