Hubby and I were working at the Wild Coast Sun near Port Edward (Natal, South Africa) when we got married 25 years ago today. It was one of those “shall we get married” type of conversations we had and 2 weeks later we were married by the local magistrate in Port Shepstone (about a 20 minute drive from Port Edward). So we celebrated by stopping at a KFC on the way home and getting take-out.
Our friends and colleagues threw us an amazing party that evening and it is still remembered as the best party ever by our dear friends.
Hubby and I met whilst working at Sun City many years earlier. In fact I was previously married. I was crazy enough to get married at the age of 17. Needless to say, the marriage did not last and we were divorced within a year. I met my current Hubby and we were married 3 years later. Our first Son was born 11 months later.
And I have had the most amazing life since then.
We have lived in South Africa, Brunei and Dubai. Although Hubby is British, South Africa will always be our home.
We have travelled to:
- Malaysia (Sabah and Sarawak)
We have moved around South Africa and have lived in our current house in Johannebsurg for the last 16 years.
There have been times where I have been tempted to put a teaspoon of arsenic in Hubby’s tea every morning. But somehow we have survived the bad times and are lucky enough to have shared some wonderful memories.
The best thing our marriage has produced is our 4 sons of course. They are the most amazing children and we could not have wished for anything more in life. And hopefully we will be blessed with some amazing grandchildren in a few years time.
So dear Hubby – here’s to another 25 years!
