In honour of the power couple's anniversary, Briefly.co.za took a quick look at their history together.
Mashaba and his stunning wife met when they were both still very young and they ended up tying the knot when he was 22 and Connie was 20.
They got married during the previous regime and were met with many obstacles - all of which they managed to overcome.
Mashaba and Connie founded their lucrative business Black Like Me with R30 000 despite efforts by the previous government to stop them.
Not only have they been successful in the business, but Mashaba went on to become one of Mzansi's most prominent politicians.
They also have two children together, Khensani and Rhulani. Mashaba has previously opened up about his daughter living and working abroad.
According to Mashaba, his daughter loves SA but is worried about her future under the ANC's rule.
