For many people nowadays, a partner is someone you can replace. Divorce rates are reaching higher and higher numbers each year and it led many to believe soulmates do not exist.
However, one granny just showed Mzansi what unconditional, true love looks like. A woman, who was only identified by her Twitter handle @ayeezuss, shared a screenshot of her grandmother's WhatsApp status in honour of her late hubby.
She revealed that 16 years after her grandad died, her granny is still in love with her soulmate. The gogo posted a snap of herself and her late partner side by side and wrote:
"Missing you my dearest husband. Today is truly filled with memories of happiness, tears and birthday celebrations that we shared throughout the years.
"I miss you. If I will live my life a thousand times, I will wish that you will be my husband each time. Oh what a wonderful husband... I miss you so much."
