Miné and Faf de Klerk’s first year of marriage

Springboks scrum-half Faf de Klerk’s wife, Miné, might not always be in the public eye but she has kept us updated on the couple’s first year of marriage through social media posts.





They say the first year of marriage is crucial for the well-being of a couple. Once the initial euphoria of being newlyweds settles in, the first year can teach you a lot about your partner and yourself. A year after their lavish Paris Estate Ceremony, Faf and Miné appear to be going stronger than ever.

Holding the title of “Faf de Klerk’s Wife” and being married to a professional athlete who spends months away from home at a time comes with its challenges. However, Miné, it’s comfortable territory.

The 30-year-old pharmacist is no stranger to the life and demands of being with a rugby player, having dated the two-time World Cup winner for years before they tied the knot in 2022. The couple celebrated their first anniversary right at the beginning of the 2023 World Cup in October 2023, a year after they became Mr and Mrs Faf De Klerk.

Although they’ve spent a significant portion of the last 12 months apart, (Faf plays his club rugby in Japan), the moments they’ve spent together have proven to be all the more meaningful.
