Abbas and Hannah Mehrnoosh

Have your say

99-year-old Abbas Mehrnoosh met his wife Hannah, 65, more than 40 years ago at a wedding.

He was a member of the Bahá’í Faith, and he fell in love with an orthodox Jew who was less than half his age and set to be married to a Jewish man.

The daughter of a Rabbi, Hannah’s parents believed it was going against her religion to marry Abbas.
