    Pakistan existed then?

    The reason for Turkey's love for Pakistan and vice-versa is definitely political. I can make an argument that the residents mostly feed on the information provided to them by the government as well(which tells them to love each other(?). Anyway, I am happy for the brotherhood/sisterhood between Turkey and Pakistan.

    Are beliefs only indoctrinated via religion? Hope it answers your confusion.

    I met a Pakistani lady who was married to an Iraqi Kurd in one of my classes a few years ago. She said she really regretted marrying him because of the cultural differences and advised me to stay away from Kurdish men.

    Interesting that she told you this....I have a somewhat unique perspective on this since I have been intimately familiar with both "cultures" all my life being that I spent my childhood in Pakistan while at the same time exposed to Kurdi culture (my paternal grandpa was Iraqi Kurd) with frequent visits to Iraqi Kurdistan, and watching interactions between Kurd husbands and Pakistani wives. Honestly, there is almost 0 cultural difference, even though there seems to be this perception among some Lahori women that Kurd men are very tribal and "strict" like Baloch or Pashtun men. Also, now the vast majority of Kurds only have 1 wife.

    I believe the difficulties between your friend's husband and her are more of personal incompatibilities and expectations and possibly language differences and likes and dislikes, rather than cultural differences. Actually language differences can sometimes be more problematic than you think.

    Edit: Since both Kurd and Pakistani are male dominated societies, another problem may simply be the difficulty to adjusting to western country rules and laws by her husband.
