To be married is a dream for many. While it’s natural to want to spend the rest of your life with the person you’ve fallen in love with, you shouldn’t rush into a marriage unless you’re sure it’s what you want.
However, a reality show about a couple of teenagers who decided they wanted to get married at the ages of 16 and 17 shocked South Africans. The two high school students decided to be married while still in school for a variety of reasons, but primarily because they were madly in love and were ready to make a lifelong commitment to one another.
Since they were too young to fully comprehend the implications of their decision, many others were surprised by it. Given their young age and limited exposure to the outside world, this was especially true.
Thando and Siyacela have been married for four years and are presently filming season four of their reality program. Many viewers tuned in to witness what it was like for two teenagers to tie the knot, but as the sessions went it became evident that the couple had made a big mistake: especially Thando, she should not have married a boy like Siyacela, who causes her more headaches than calm.
Episode 2 of Season 4 aired last night, and fans observed that Thando, who is pregnant, is not doing well as her husband is having sex with his side chick. Thando’s apparent weight loss caused concern among her friends and family.
