Shahid, who has witnessed his parents' broken marriage at a young age, wanted a marriage that lasts forever. When he had met Mira for the first time, the duo didn't stop talking for seven hours. While there were many who raised eyebrows on the 14-year age gap, it never really became a problem for the couple. The duo has redefined the meaning of true love for many of us and restored our faith in the institution of marriage.
Recently, Shahid was invited at Neha Dhupia's show, No Filter Neha, wherein he shared one thing that his wife, Mira hates the most. The actor opened up on how they are two different personalities and fight often on anything and everything. And how they give the best advice but he plays the experience card which she hates the most. He had also shared that he feels immensely happy for sharing his life with someone like Mira.
The actor was quoted as saying, "We can fight about everything and anything. We have a very strong and different point of views. For the kind of person I am, I am very happy that I have somebody like that. Although on a daily basis it might be difficult to deal with but when I look at the bigger picture, I know she is really good for me. And I am guessing I am also good for her. We always tend to tell each other the part that we are not seeing ourselves. Mira is always able to give me another perspective and when I look back after coming out of a situation, I feel very glad that she said what she said to me. I always pull the experience card on her which she hates."
Shahid and Mira are often questioned about their 14-year age gap.

At the young age of 21, Mira had decided to marry Shahid Kapoor and create her own world for which she often been trolled and criticised. A couple of weeks ago, at a film festival in Mumbai, Shahid had decided to address the issue and had finally opened up on people criticising his wife's decision of marrying early. The actor had said, "My wife is an amazingly mature, evolved human being who decided and was sure of who she wanted to marry at the age of 20. How many people have the conviction to do that? I think you spend your life well in your 30s like I have. I had no clue what I wanted to do in 20. It takes a lot of clarity and conviction even whether it’s work or marriage to decide that you want to do this at this stage in your life."
Shahid had also talked about his wife's plan of having kids at an early age and had shared, "Because she was like, ‘By the time I was 25, I’d be done being a wife, I’ve had both my kids and I’ve had time for myself.’ So, why should I be clarifying her choices? Why is everybody judging other people on their choices? Let everybody be who they want to be. Decide for yourself who you want to be and learn to respect who somebody else wants to be. It’s essential." (Don't Miss: Saif Ali Khan Rubbished The Speculations About Sending Son, Taimur Ali Khan To Boarding School)
