This Woman Was Forced To Go On Her Honeymoon Alone, So She Took Some Hilariously Sad Photos

"I cried almost for two nights in his arms, telling him I can't go."

Choosing a destination, accommodations, and activities are all part of the fun of planning a honeymoon, but like all good things, there's an unsexy side, too. That part includes things like getting the proper paperwork and documentation to travel to the exotic location of your choosing. 

Unfortunately for Huma Mobin and her husband Arsalaan Sever Butt, that part ruined their whole trip. Three days before their honeymoon to Greece, the newlywed couple from from Lahore, Pakistan discovered that Butt's visa was denied. He couldn't go with her. This, of course, was tragic for the both of them. 

"[My husband] is the life of the party and we are wild when together," Mobin told A Plus. "So going abroad without him was leaving half of my craziness behind. I cried almost for two nights in his arms, telling him I can't go. I had to go because he begged, [and told] me that we'd be wasting a good fortune from our savings if neither of us go." 

So, in an effort to make the most of the situation, Mobin took off for Athens with her in-laws. But she made sure Butt knew she was thinking of him during every special moment of the trip. 

She took a series of hilariously tragic photos in poses that showed just how much she missed him.

Mobin actually got the idea from her husband. "Immediately after [the] engagement he went to Budapest, where he wanted to show me that he was missing me, so he took this hand-hovering-ghostly-figure pose and sent it to me," she said. 

She thought taking the photos could be a little inside joke between the two of them, but her photos and her honeymoon alone story quickly spread all over the Internet.

The photos may have been silly, but Mobin genuinely felt bad being without Butt during a trip that was meant to commemorate their union.  "I asked a couple of our friends to keep him company, so they were Snapchatting me how much fun they were having with him. A friend of mine even sent him a full cooked meal," she said. "I truly missed him like crazy." 

But, she admits that she had a great time on her honeymoon, despite having to leave her hubby behind. It's a vacation, after all. 

"The best thing about this trip was my mother-in-law with whom I have the most comfortable relationship," she said. "She and I would go to the hotel respectfully with the rest, but then we'd sneak out and head to bars and roam around the streets late at night, enjoying the nightlife." Her mother-in-law was also the official photographer of the photo series.

As for the photos, Butt and the rest of the couple's friends enjoyed seeing them. "He laughed at them all the time," Mobin said. "[A] group of my best friends pushed me to continue and make an entire series out of it."

She's glad she did and that people seem to be enjoying them so much. "From the part of the country where I come from, my story has peaked a lot of interest as going without a husband and especially with in-laws seems like the most unnatural, crazy thing to do. But I've been blessed with a husband and family that appreciate the weirdness and treats me like a daughter they never had. It's opening up minds of people," she said. "And to all couples out there, traveling is an investment with infinite returns!"

After her photo series went viral, Mobin decided to start a travel blog on Facebook titled Outside Girl. "If anyone wants to see and hear more about my stories, they can very well read and see the pictures there," she said.
