- Micahel shared their story of strength and true love to the #ImStaying group on Facebook
Love stories with a happy ending could put a smile on the face of anyone. Michael and Zanele Leopa's story did just that for many South Africans. The couple has been together for 10 years, two of which they've been married for but it wasn't always sunshine and rainbows.
Michael had a hard childhood. He was raised in an orphanage after both his parents passed away. Zanele didn't care about his financial status or background as they started their strong relationship.
Michael recalled the time when he first started working, he had no bed and used to sleep on the floor. This didn't bother his stunning wife at all as she slept beside him on the floor. Their love is inspirational and truly heartwarming.
Michaels full post on the #ImStaying group read:
"Started dating my wife back in 2010 while I was doing matric. She is from a normal family where she was raised by both her parents with siblings. Normal family set-up. On the other hand, I was raised in an orphanage, both my parents are late with no solid family support.
"This woman loved and supported me regardless of where I come from or what my financial status was. I remember when I started working I did not have a bed used to sleep on the floor but guess what she would visit me and sleep on the floor with me. she simply loves me for the person I am.
"We've been together for ten years now and married for 2years we are blessed with a handsome baby boy and because of her #ImStaying"
