Love, or a British passport?

This could have been a nice love story if not for this bit towards the end of the piece:
Subhiya's father has accused Ashwani of marrying his daughter only to obtain a British passport. Is this true, I ask him. He replies "Yes" just as Subhiya interrupts.
Sigh. Some would argue, of course, that a British passport lasts forever, unlike love. That is a cynical view, but I am more cynical: nothing lasts forever.

Even cold November rain.
