Getting into interracial relationships and marriages used to be a crime that deserved a jail time during apartheid. But now all that has changed and everyone has a right to marry whosoever they want whenever they want.

“We have been accommodating of each other’s differences, but one thing she has given me is the openness to want to honour my culture, and one thing I have given her is the same thing. When we have kids, I want them to know German-English culture and language and also know English and Xhosa culture,” Nyaniso said in an Instagram Live.
