As beautiful as South Africa is, our young democracy still holds a deeply problematic history of apartheid. One beautiful interracial couple is reminding Mzansi of how far we've come since '94, sharing stunning snaps of their beautiful traditional wedding.
The images were shared by Facebook user Tyson Moondley, who claims not to know the sweet lovebirds personally but was inspired after finding the images on social media.
"Who can stop 2 birds when they fall in love... Somewhere in South Africa, that's why #imstaying" he heartily captioned the post.

The couples beautiful display of affection had many social media users in the comments section, with some even taking the time to share their own stories of cross-cultural love:
"Do you know that there were SO many South Africans waiting to marry each other when apartheid ended (and the ban in marrying across the 'colour lines' ended) that the Home Affairs queue to do so took 2 years to sort out ... that’s a lot of love!"
"Love this... My Mom and Dad have been at it since 1987 as soon as the law was passed...that man loved my Mom so much that he was willing to give his farm up and move to the then-Transkei... LOVE has no colour, age, size."
"We welcome you makoti to the Zulu tribe. This is so beautiful, love builds nations and breaks barriers. Li li li li liiii kwakuhle kwethu."
"Siyabonga Ndlovu, I'm waiting for the wedding Baba, shesha my man."
Vivien Q Mariens:
"Real love sees no colour."
"If they love each other, are good and kind to each other, that is all that matters!"
Meanwhile, Briefly News previously reported that a local couple has Mzansi feeling a little sentimental after sharing some adorable snaps on Twitter. The handsome teacher @Stha_Tomose and his beautiful nurse were definitely proving government workers can still keep it flirty.
"A teacher and a nurse... we both serve umphakathi," he captioned the loving post.
Many Mzansi social media users took the time to thank the selfless couple for their service to the nation while others got just a little cheeky and humorous. Check out some of the comments below:
