Tony Kgoroge and Sthandiwe Kgoroge are one of South Africa’s TV power couples currently making waves in the South Africa entertainment industry. They are dearly loved for their acting skills and for keeping their affections for each other alive for close to two decades. Despite the rigors of fame, the demands and pressure that come with being a celebrity, the couple has been able to make their love last.
The duo appears to have mastered the art of building an admirable home, having lived together for years without any sort of family drama or scandal. They’ve also learned how to perfectly strike a balance between their work obligation and family obligation, and it’s been rewarding. The two have truly remained committed to each other and are still going strong despite all odds.
Tony Kgoroge And Sthandiwe Began Their Marital Journey In The Early 2000s
Tony Kgoroge and Sthandiwe tied the knot in the year 2002. The actor sealed his love for his sweetheart after proposing to her on her birthday. However, the exact day, month, and location where their wedding took place is not known to the public.
Perhaps, what matters most is that the two have remained husband and wife since then. They’ve had their fair share of life’s ups and downs, but they were able to conquer all as a couple. So far, the duo has been enjoying a scandal-free marriage. There are no signs they are leaving each other’s side any time soon or heading for divorce.
Friendship Is One Of The Things That Have Kept Them Going All These Years
Celebrities are known for their short-lived marriages and relationships, but Tony Kgoroge and his wife Sthandiwe are proof that true love exists. In a recent interview, Mrs. Kgoroge admitted that they’ve faced some challenges in their marriage, but some of the factors that helped their union are friendship and prayer.
According to her, marrying one’s best friend is key when it comes to love matters. She added that her husband is her best friend, a great pillar in her life, her confidant, and someone she looks up to everytime.
Sthandiwe also emphasized the importance of collective prayers in marriages, adding that whenever they are faced with situations that appear tough and difficult, they usually hold their hands together and pray about it. The actress believes there is no manual for a successful marriage and that marriages work because the people involved made it so.
The Two Are Parents To Three Lovely Kids
Tony Kgoroge and Sthandiwe Kgoroge’s union is blessed with three children. Unfortunately, the names of their children and information on when they were born are not available for public consumption. Also, there is no information about where exactly they are now, and what they’ve been up to.
However, we do believe that they live with their parents and that they are busy with their studies and other meaningful things. Also missing on Tony and Sthandiwe’s family timeline are their parenting skills and special family moments. Although the actors may have kept information about their children from the wandering eyes of the public and the curious, we are certain that they still find time out of their busy schedule to have fun as a family.
On their parenting skills, there is no gainsaying the fact that Tony and Sthandiwe are doing a great job. The fact that none of their kids have been in the news for the wrong reason is proof that they are raising responsible children.
