Love is a beautiful thing in all of its forms, and nothing is more refreshing than witnessing two hearts united in love.

With so many individuals divorcing, it's always inspiring to see celebrities whose marriages have lasted.

Let's take a look at some South African celebrities who have demonstrated that love can exist even in the celebrity world.

Romeo and Basetsana Kumalo

For nearly two decades, the two lovebirds have been together. They began dating shortly after Basetsana was crowned Miss South Africa in 1997.

They married in 2000 after three years of dating.

They're still a couple that a lot of people look up to.

"My soulmate, my lover, my companion, my confidant, my inspiration, my person, my closest friend," Basetsana says of Romeo.

Romeo also wrote a beautiful poem in which she expressed her love for Basetsana and thanked her for her beauty.

The Kumalos are the parents of three children. Nkosinathi Gabriel, born in 2005, and Emmanuel Kumalo, born in 2012, are their two sons. They had their third child, a baby girl named Bontle ba Morena Jasmine Kumalo, in 2014.

For all of their years together, Ntokozo has complimented Nqubeko for never breaking her heart.

"Thank you for never bringing me to cry tears of despair or heartbreak during the last ten years, instead making me cry tears of joy and laughter. In honor of their ten-year wedding anniversary, Ntokozo wrote to Nqubeko, "I love you forever & always."

Friendship is the key to their happy marriage.

The adorable couple is the proud parents of two girls.
