The Modern Greek Tragedy


The Modern Greek Tragedy

Huma Mobin and Arsalaan Sever Butt got married about 7 months ago and are keen travelers.

After spending their honeymoon in Dubai and Maldives, the couple planned another trip to Greece with Arsalaan's family.

But there was one small problem: Arsalaan didn’t get a visa in time and a refund was impossible. So he insisted that Huma and his parents embark on the journey without him.

After the ‘husband-less honeymoon’, Huma posted photos to Facebook of her with an arm around her invisible husband and a despairing look.

To add to the tragedy, she lost her phone halfway through the trip in the Aegean Sea, leaving her posing with two empty hands in the end.

Huma became an Internet sensation overnight – appearing on platforms such as BBC, Time, Buzzfeed and the Huffington Post.

“It was horrible at first. But because of my amazing in-laws and all their effort to distract me and not make me miss him that much, I actually had fun. I cried on my mother-in-law’s shoulder the first night, but she told me to make the best of this trip!” Huma told From New York to Lahore.
