    Sex Can't we all just get along?? Well, actually... yeah (sometimes... maybe).

    Hey, hey! Perhaps this will ease some tensions between the two countries??? Yeah, I doubt it will either.

    India and Pakistan unite in sporting marriage

    (CNN) -- Indian tennis player Sania Mirza has used her Twitter page to thank well-wishers following the announcement of her marriage to Pakistan cricketer Shoaib Malik.

    The wedding, which will take place in April, brings together two nuclear powers historically divided by political and sporting rivalry.

    On Tuesday, the 23-year-old Mirza greeted her 13,205 followers with the message: "Hi Guys! Me & Shoaib are very happy in this new phase of our life.Want to thank the media & all you guys for the wishes. Lots of love to all."
    Mirza divides opinion in India, drawing criticism from strict Muslim groups for her short tennis skirts and jewellery, while gaining plaudits and fans for her achievements on the court.

    She became the first Indian to win a WTA Tour title in 2005, reached the fourth round of the U.S. Open later that year and won the Australian Open mixed doubles last year.

    The announcement of the marriage between the two Muslims comes two months after Mirza broke off her engagement to a childhood friend.

    "I have been in the constant glare for too long and would appreciate the privacy at this very personal moment in my life," her statement said.

    Malik, 28, is a former national captain who is currently serving a year-long ban from the Pakistan Cricket Board due to indiscipline on a tour of Australia.

    He caused controversy in 2007 when, after losing to India in the World Twenty20 final, he thanked Muslims from "all over the world" for their support.

    India and Pakistan have fought three wars since their independence in 1947.

    Still nice to see some high profile people in this department. Indians and Pakistanis marrying has always been a sticky issue for their cultures; maybe the grudge might end, one tiny wedding vow at a time.

    a way of securing diplomatic relations in the past was marriage of royalty.

    This isn't the equivalent but the parallel can be drawn.
    You are Ian's plaything, responding to his touch with shrieks of orgasmic delight. No woman in the history of the world is having better sex than sex you are having with Ian... in my head.

    Heard this on NPR. The lady was trying to downplay her parents bigotry. "You know, they are very high minded people, you know. And they told me, "We do not look down on this because of the religious thing." No. They are simply concerned he is from Pakistan, and there has been so much trouble from those people."

    Good for them - I hope they can be happy. I'm glad to see (hopefully) those two at least can see past racial difference.

    I heard the same story and I think you confused the religion part. The couple in the OP are both Muslim.

    In answer to your fundamental question

    No. No we can't all get along.
