A lot of women put up with the bekezela life, but one bride on the hit Mzansi show Our Perfect Wedding earned the respect of tweeps when she said she does not tolerate it.
On Sunday, OPW bride Cabo made it very clear that she would not stick around in a relationship where a man cheats or abuse his woman.
According to the lovely bride, who tied the knot to the love of her life, Abraham, she ended her first marriage because she was not about the ukubekezela life.
Times LIVE reported ukubekezela means a "woman must withstand anything that happens in her marriage and stay married against all odds".
Briefly.co.za learned it is a principle passed on from older women, particularly in black communities.
But, Cabo was not having it, so she decided to marry someone who respects and loves her, and tweeps were loving her no-nonsense attitude.
"Sis Cabo speaking the whole truth and nothing but it #OurPerfectWedding.Yekani ukubekezela ladies”, Samu Africander wrote.
@JustMashudu added, "I really like the bride's advice, as woman we must stop suffering from the "Bekezela Syndrome".
As Briefly.co.za reported earlier, tweeps reacted to the lyrics of Jay Z and Beyonce's new song, which suggest woman must put up with men who cheats and treats them badly. The women concluded if that's love, then they don't want it.
