Still happily married – Couple who went viral for simple wedding mark 10th anniversary

A South African woman who went viral with her husband years ago has revealed that they are still happily married 10 years after photos from their simple wedding set the internet abuzz.

It may be recalled that they tied the knot without inviting any guests, family or friends and photos from when they were leaving the registry made rounds online.

The woman known as Madi Maruping rocked a simple wedding dress while her hubby was dressed in a white shirt and trousers.

The couple chose to mark their 10th anniversary by going on well deserved vacation together instead of hosting a party.

According to Madi, they thought about budgeting 100k for the anniversary party but changed their mind and settled for a vacation.

She noted that it was better than organining an event where they have to feed 100 people who are fake and pretending to be happy for them.

Madi wrote; “10yrs later still happily married, the plan was to have 10yrs wedding anniversary but budget it’s close to 100k..rather go on vacation than feeding 100 fake people in 1 day.”

Reacting, @Lebzanation17 said; I wish our parents can see it from that viewpoint, unnecessary pressure and spending

@Portiathegirl; Have a small anniversary with people you love & pour the same amount of love to you.

In other news, a woman has lamented bitterly after making what she thought was a sound financial decision which turned around to affect her negatively.

She said she fixed all her assets and properties in her brother’s name, but his wife recently filed for divorce and demanded half.

According to the woman, who wrote to Ugandan financial advisor, Ssalongo Ssali, she had been saving and acquiring properties without informing her husband.

The mother of three bought plots of land, motorcycles for business, started a rental company and registered everything under her brother’s name.

She did that in case her husband tries to divorce her, unfortunately, her brothers’s wife who is aware that she fixed her assets in his name still wants half of the properties in the divorce settlement.

The distraught woman has asked for advise on what to do now that her sister-in-law with to kids wants to claim her properties through the divorce.

In her words; I am a married woman and a mother of 3 kids. My husband is financially well off. I am working at my professional job and he left me with full authority and freedom to manage my finances as i wish.

I have saved and by God’s grace, i have secretly accumulated a number of property including rentals, various plots of land, taxis for business etc. To be honest, i registered most of my property into my brother’s names with fear that in case my husband divorces me, i have all my property and i move on.

Unfortunately my brother’s wife of 2 kids has recently filed for divorce and wants more than half of his property and fortune. To make matters worse, she is aware of all property registered in her husband’s names including my investments! And she’s very serious with divorce and property sharing! I really regret why i did this! How can i save my investments? Advise me.
