The parents of three were on Umhlobo Wenene FM on Sunday afternoon, where they were talking about their relationship. Sthandiwe said Tony proposed on her birthday and explained that it was romantic.
So, what does it take to make it work after so many years? Well, Standiwe believes that friendship is important. "I think more than anything, we are friends. We are each other's best, best friends. Everytime someone asks for relationship advice I say 'guys, it's a daily up and down, every day is a learning curve'. No one has the manual on how to maintain a good marriage. All I can say, personally with me and Tony, we are each other's best friends. We would do anything and cover each other's backs..."
The actress added that another beautiful thing is that they can pray together. "When times are tough we can hold each other's hands and say 'let's pray about this'."
Another couple that has stood the test of time is Nhlanhla and TK Nciza. They have been married for 11 years. Love really is a beautiful thing.
