Although there have been rising rates of divorce in recent decades, it still carries quite the stigma. So much so that people would rather stay in a toxic marriage than be seen as that couple who gave up.
But divorce isn't all about giving up, it's also about knowing when to walk away and the following celebs did just that. We're not trying to say that is a easy process or an easy way out, but it is always better the bury a corpse and mourn than to keep it around as it decays and compromises everything around it.
Idols presenter, TV producer and musician Proverb's marriage went through quite a public decay. He and his ex-wife, Onalerona, managed to remain publically civil throughout it all and he is now living his best life, professionally and personally. In addition to a successful television production company, he is dating the beautiful Liesl Laurie.
Because Connie and Shona have been together for so long, people tend to forget that Connie Ferguson used to be married to actor Neo Matsunyane. They even have a daughter together.
Connie moved on to Shona (who married her after two months of dating) and they have been redefining couple goals ever since.
Music composer Lebo M just seems to love love as he has been married 6 times. A few of those times have been remarriages to his previous wives, the most recent being his nuptials to Angela Nagni-Casara.
Azania Mosaka is another one who didn't let divorce get her down. Following her divorce from fellow broadcaster, Tony Ndoro, rumors have linked her to a number of men, including Sizwe Dhlomo, but we currently have no idea who she's with. New bae or not, her career and businesses seem to be doing well as she recently opened a new outlet in a new location so she's definitely flourishing.
And lastly we have South African favourite, Khanyi Dhlomo, who divorced her first husband back in 2008 and later moved on to a yummier man, Chinezi Chijoke, who seems to be treating her like the goddess she is. She's also enjoying unrivalled success with her countless business ventures and she is also the proud mom to two gorgeous men.
See guys and dolls? The end of a chapter isn't always the end of a story.
