A Bishop's 16-year-old son finally married the love of his life, 15, after they announced their engagement last year and the news stunned social media users.
On Thursday, Briefly.co.za reported that Siyacela Dlamuka, 16, from Ulundi, northern KwaZulu-Natal, married his 15-year-old bride, Thando, this past weekend.
According to the Daily Sun, Dlamuka said he was excited to finally marry the love of his life, which was what they wanted from the first day they started dating.
Our readers were not as excited as the happily married young couple and some said marriage is not made for kids.
We decided to take a look at a couple of honest reactions the post gathered.
Ongezwa Ongie Ntanga said: "What do minors know about marriage? This is rubbish and it's illegal."
Lizzy Peta-Bashabi commented: "Marriage is a beautiful thing but these kids should've just concentrated on their studies, and leave marriage to adults. Will the bride handle the pressure of being umakoti and a student at the same time??"
Susan Lokwe added: "I also don’t think it’s a good idea , they still have a lot of growing up."
NdinguVuyisile Zikhali Petros wrote: "The Bible says, when a son is getting married, he should leave his parents and cleave to his wife.... I suppose at his age "Leave and Cleave" doesn't apply. Having said that, your honeymoon should be during school holiday, provided both of you passed. #Congratulations!"
Kuster Mvundl'obhelu Majova commented: "Am not sure if I must congratulate them or must I say guys that's the worse mistake ever at your age. There's much life ahead of you that excite more than teen stage."
Kenny Sihoyiya Ka Mthembu said: "I'm really struggling to understand this. It extremely soul shaking as a Priest to counsel adult into a marriage life. I'm trying to figure out how did ubaba uDlamuka got it right."
