YouTube couple The Ndelaz have taught young tucks aspiring to tie the knot that marriage takes work, commitment and persistence for it to stay afloat.
Briefly.co.za learnt that Nelson Mandela, better known as Ndela, said he and his bae Mercy had already planned to get married but along the way, the two broke up due to a misunderstanding.
He told Ebru TV the split was unexpected and it had them rethinking a lot of things.
Instead of sweeping things under the rug or walking away from something beautiful, Ndela manned up and apologised because he knew he had messed up.
“It was my mistake. She told me to apologise to her parents on her behalf because she was heartbroken,” the loving husband said.
Mercy revealed her hubby called her mum and said he was sorry for hurting her daughter.
To prove he was serious about winning back Mercy’s heart, Ndela’s parents visited their in-laws’ place to represent him and foster peace between their families.
The man followed up with another visit and met with Mercy’s father to express his remorse and speak man to man.
A year after the debacle, Ndela and Mercy said their vows and are now happily married.
In other news, a married couple from the US spent their wedding day catering to the needy instead of partying. Melanie and Tyler had ordered food for 150 guests but Covid-19 had them getting married in the presence of fewer people.
Instead of wasting their food, they donated it to a women’s shelter where 135 people received free meals.
Right after saying their vows and wrapping up their ceremony, the lovebirds went to the shelter in their attire and served the people who went to eat.
