In an age where saving oneself for marriage is considered largely “old-fashioned” or even unnecessary, the newly wedded couple, Lucia and Teboho Mahlako defied the odds and waited until they tied the knot to consummate their marriage.
The couple dated for just under a year before Teboho popped the question. He proposed to Lucia on her birthday, 29 June 2019, at the Walter Sisulu National Botanical Gardens.
According to W24, it was not love at first sight for the pair who knew each other for a long time before actually becoming friends. However, over the years they got to know each other and the bond started to form until they officially started dating in July 2018.

Teboho on the other hand did admit that his partner’s principles proved a challenge for him as a man.
"I can definitely attest that waiting for marriage is one of the best things we could have done for our marriage and future," he shared.
Speaking of the proposal, Lucia says it was an ordinary outing with her partner and their friends until one of her friends directed them on how to pose for pictures, only to land them in a position where Teboho was on one knee.
Lucia shared that she was taken aback by the beautiful moment and Teboho revealed that he was ready to commit himself to the woman he had been learning to love.
