It is sad, in my opinion, that this is even a question.  There is no reason that Pakistan and India have to be deadly enemies.  Your two countries' cricket teams play each other and so do your hockey team.  You are not at war with each other (even with the situation in Kashmir).

Surely if there were more marriages and other contacts between the two countries, things would be better.   So to me it might be a good thing if they marry.

But that should all be irrelevant anyway.  People should do what they want in terms of marriage -- it's love, not a political statement.

Choice of life partner in marriage is definitely a matter. Also if the two person are happy to get married in spite of any difference between them, I see no reason the difference should become a reason for opposing the marriage.

The rivalry between India and Pakistan can become quite intense, at least for some people from both side of the border. It is unfortunate that people are allowing their misplaced national sentiments to create unpleasantness for for people for eminent people of their country, who have served their country well.

However before I end my response, I must formally protest against the use of term "enemy country". India and Pakistan do have strained relations, bur most certainly they are not enemies.

I believe there should be no sense of wrong in this matter. It does not matter at all what country one or the other is from. It does not matter if their own countries are even in conflict with each other because their governments are not them. These are two individual people, who just want to get married because they love each other. Their home countries' political states should have no influence whatsoever on their marriage and personal lives. Thus, there is no reason to have any sense of wrong in this issue.
