He moved to the U.S. in 2006 for College when he was just 17 years old. They are both entrepreneurs and credit falling in love with each other due to their shared love and passion for business, family, philanthropy, and spiritual growth.
How They Met
They met in 2011 via a dating app. Ajay was the first and last person Brittany met after trying the app for the first time. The fact that they met via a dating app used to be something they kept away from people, but they both realized it is nothing to be ashamed of. It doesn’t matter how they came to meet just that they did.

What Ajay’s Parents Thought Of Brittany
What’s more, Ajay’s dad and Brittany formed a close bond despite the fact he doesn’t speak English, and she speaks very little Hindi. In 2016, Brittany spent close to 4 months in India with Ajay’s family, almost entirely alone while she was volunteering at a local school. Ajay’s dad looked out for Brittany as a daughter, as did his mom, brother, and sisters; they all always accepted her with open arms despite any cultural differences. They are very loving people, and Brittany believes they could see that Ajay loves her and she loves Ajay. Brittany also believes that Ajay’s family appreciates that she is here, as his family, since they are not in the U.S.
