Relationship between Burzis and Hoda

Burzis and Hoda married each other in December 2005 in Punta Cana, Dominican Republic. It was Burzis who proposed to Hoda in May 2005 for marriage. 

Sadly, after two years, on February 15, 2007, Hoda filed for divorce. Their divorce got finalized on February 6, 2008

As a fact of coincidence, the couple met on Valentine’s Day and separated on the same day. 

After the divorce, Burzis said he would always cherish the memories he has with Hoda and praised her as the epitome of class.
