Q&A: Black Holes

Q:
I always wanted to know that when two black holes same gravitational pull perfectly identical in physical, numbers, energy and everything, are facing each other what would happen? would there be zero gravity? will the gravitational pull of both cancel out and like stop time and pause time?

A:
Yes, there would be a point of zero gravity mid-way between the black holes. Time would not pause or stop at this point - that happens in regions of very strong gravity near a black hole event horizon.
