Thabiso Mokhethi opens up about divorce

"My wife was my best friend, my kids were my friends, we did everything together but then after the money stopped coming in, so did the love. The respect lessened and the arguments increased, and instead of growing together, my ex-wife and I were growing apart. All these things happened after leaving Generations.
The biggest thing that made me lose faith (in God) was losing my marriage because we're taught that marriage is from God. I used to believe that God was the glue that kept me and my wife together.
At the time of my divorce, I had lost my older brother, he was killed. Then it was just me because both my parents died, my older brother got murdered and the youngest died in a car accident with our mom. Then the only person who said they would never leave me left me."
The actor/ preacher touched on how the loneliness caused his depression, which, as previously revealed, led to his drug addiction.
Thabiso's darkest times led him closer to God. He recently opened up about ending his Sangoma practices for Christianity.
Speaking to Briefly News, Thabiso said he made a mistake by not putting God first before everything:
"The first mistake I made was to put my value and self-worth in my money, titles and even my marriage instead of God, my Father. I felt important, accomplished and valued because of having material things thus when I lost them, to me it equated to losing self-dignity."
The actor went on to offer advice to married couples:
"The people who suffer the most in divorce are the children. Husbands and wives should do their best to keep their families together and at peace by drawing near to God together.
Have difficult yet respectful conversations so you each take responsibility for the state of the marriage and family. Love is the key, always."
