On January 17, in the dying days of the Barack Obama administration, they heard her permanent residency had been approved. Ecstatic, the couple thought they would be reunited by Valentine's Day. Ten days later, Trump suspended visas for people from the seven countries -- Iran included -- for 90 days to review vetting procedures and determine whether requirements needed to be tightened. "I was heartbroken," Aliabadi told AFP in a telephone interview from Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, where his family is based. Never in his wildest dreams did he think this would happen in America. "I don't think we can have a wedding if you don't have a bride," he said. "Frankly, we just stopped planning." - Love is stronger - Not normally one to make his personal life public, Aliabadi posted a picture of the couple on Twitter with a heartfelt message for Trump.
