- Werner and Kirsten met at a house party in 2016 after her friend begged her to go
- However, it was not love at first sight, Kirsten only realised she had feelings for Werner on the third time they hung out
- Two years later the couple tied the knot and despite coming from different racial backgrounds, their families and friends supported them from the get-go
Sometimes true love happens when we least expected, and that's what makes each couple's love story unique.
Take the true love story of Kirsten and Werner van Greunen as an example. Was it not for her nagging friend, Kirsten would never have met her hubby.
In 2016, Kirsten and her sister attended a party at Werner's family home, and they only went because their friend begged them to accompany her.
It was at that party where Kirsten and Werner met- but it was not exactly love at first sight. Kirsten recalled Werner was really friendly and he kept them company the entire night.
But, it was not until the third time they hung out together that she realised she like him.
However, Werner shared her feelings and two-years-later they tied the knot. Briefly.co.za learned the Mrs van Gruenen's heart was warmed when she saw her hubby accept her seven-year-old son as his own.
As for Werner, he fell in love with his wifey's motherly traits, The Sowetan reported.
"The ability to speak to her, the ability to share and dream with her, and knowing that she is a good mother," he said.
Werner popped the question on Christmas Eve last year in KwaZulu-Natal.
"When opening presents Werner's friend had a wrapped box which he said was a present from him and his family. He then got down on one knee and proposed," she explained.
They tied the knot in a romantic ceremony in March 2018, at La Montague resort near Hartbeespoort Dam.
And, although they come from different racial backgrounds, their families and friends supported their relationship from the start.
