True love is rare. In modern society, relationships tend to be easily lost with not many willing to fight through the challenges one can be faced with when settling down. This is why love stories such as the one about this elderly couple are always so heartening.
Cleo Ehlers took to the feel-good Facebook group ImStaying to share the news of her parents, whose marriage has stood the test of time and reached its 60-year mark. Her post read as follows:
"My parents are celebrating 60 years of marriage today, remarkable! 1960. Diamond anniversary."
It was also accompanied by an adorable picture of the two lovebirds, who seem as in love as ever. Facebook users loved seeing the adoring post and shared their well wishes for the happy elderly couple.
"Happy anniversary! How cool you both stayed together on this wonderful journey of life... I salute you."
Khanya Nkosazana said:
"All the best lovebirds. 40 more to reach the great one. Everything is possible with God."
Anita van Rensburg said:
"Wonderful, Congratulations! God's richest blessings, love and protection!"
Briefly.co.za also reported about a local woman who has had social media buzzing after she took to Twitter to share two screenshots of two different conversations with both her boyfriend and her male bestie. In the texts, the lady tells the bf and the bestie how she just got stuck.
"Babe, my car broke down in the middle of nowhere, I'm so scared," she wrote in one text to both the boyfriend and to the bestie.
The responses from the two differed vastly, somewhat proving the point for some women that "male besties" are not only important to have, but some times better to have than actual boyfriends, who seemingly can tend to get a little too comfortable in relationships.
The contrasting screenshots sparked a ton of comments from tweeps who shared mixed opinions about its contents.
