This is not the first time any foreigner has come to Pakistan to marry a Pakistani. Earlier, a Russian girl traveled to Pakistan and embraced Islam to marry a Pakistani boy. The girl married the resident of Gujranwala, Muhammad Ali.
Polina became friends with Ali in an online community, and it later blossomed into a love, that forced her to travel 4000km to Pakistan. The couple in an interview with the Pakistani YouTuber said that they both share a love for travel, adventure, and exploring new cultures. They have also started their YouTube channel where they share their life experiences.
Polina embraced Islam, learned a little bit of Urdu, and moved to Pakistan. The Russian said the girl mentioned her love for cooking desi food and parathas. Ali said that Polina was an atheist before marrying him. But adjusting to Pakistan was not difficult for her. The girl said that since she was not accustomed to desi socialization, it became a bit challenging to meet new people. Since so many guests flocked to meet her. She informed me that she is on good terms with her in-laws.
