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.
Legit.ng 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."
In a similar story, Legit.ng reported that recently, Pastor Sam Adeyemi and his wife, Nike, celebrated their 27th wedding anniversary.
The clergyman took to his social media page to acknowledge their years of togetherness as a couple on Friday, May 1, describing the mother of his kids as his woman.
The way the founder and senior pastor of Daystar Christian Centre, celebrate themselves is worthy of emulation.
On every occasion they get, the couple does not miss the chance to heap praises on each other.
Pastor Sam said that he is so blessed to have her in his life. He noted that Pastor Nike is beautiful inside and out, thereby making them beautiful together. According to the Daystar pastor, they create beautiful things together, including their babies.
