While vacationing with his family, young Khalid met Hala and immediately fell in love. After returning home, the distance between him and his new love threw him into a depression. That is, until he reunited with Hala and popped the big question. This sounds like a love story that Lifetime would make a movie about, but the big twist is that Khalid is still in nursery school! From CBS News:
Two Syrian children may be the youngest couple ever to get engaged.
Khalid, 5, popped the question to Hala, who’s just 3, “of his own free will,” following a whirlwind holiday romance.
The families of both children are not only taking the betrothal seriously, they insist the school children are in love and are already planning a wedding for 10 years down the road — when Khalid will be 15 and Hala 12.
The parents arranged the engagement ceremony in their home town of Homs, about 100 miles north of Damascus.
