Faryal and I did not go through with the divorce because it is banned in Islam to opt for a divorce when the wife is pregnant.

I have learned my lesson. It was surely a wake-up call for us both and we believe, it will only make us strong. I think we will be married forever. – Amir Khan

Well, the couple sought religion to be the primary reason for avoiding a divorce. They did not mention anything about either wife or husband’s feeling, neither their child.

We’ve left everything in the past with the baby coming, we’re looking for a brighter future. – Amir & Faryal.
