- A couple celebrated their 60th wedding anniversary and their photos went viral
- Their daughter shared the news via the #ImStaying facebook group
- Although the couple celebrated the occasion under lockdown, thousands of South Africans showered them with love
The nationwide lockdown has been a game-changer for many South Africans and some have had to celebrate some special milestones at home.
It must be hard trying to celebrate a birthday or any other personal milestone without family and friends, but festivities have had to be subdued due to regulations.
YEN.com.gh recently learnt of a couple who celebrated their 60th year of marriage together on Thursday.
A diamond wedding anniversary isn't often seen, especially in a day when the divorce rate is so high.
While the special couple was forced to celebrate the occasion indoors on the 35th day of lockdown, they were lauded via social media.
Their daughter, Nicola Oosthuizen, shared the news and photos via the #ImStaying Facebook group and the post went viral.
Bokang Sello Ramokoena said,
"Love always win. May the Lord continue to bless their union."
Jennifer Heath added,
"CONGRATULATIONS. A milestone to be so proud of. Definitely a love that never ended."
Kate Moeketsane responded,
"That’s what I call staying power."
Sipho Dineka said,
"Happy 60th birthday of marriage God bless you you may have more to come."
YEN.com.gh reported that while it’s no secret that John Dumelo and his wife, Gifty Mawunya, kept their relationship private prior to their blissful nuptial, they currently have one of the most famous open marriages.
The two were also hardly spotted kissing or cuddling in public when they were dating.
However, John Dumelo and wife, Gifty Mawunya have not starved their fans of details in their thriving marriage.
