Watch| 10 Things WE Learnt in Our First Years of Marriage

Abdul Malick and I have been married for a little over 5 years now. I’m always surprised when people ask us for marriage advice because when I think of a lifetime together, we are still in the infancy phase. We also don’t have kids, and we work for ourselves from home. However, as much as time has flown by and as much as our circumstances may differ from the next person, there are some things that are universal no matter where you’re with your significant other.

So today’s video was as much scripted by Abdul Malick as it was by me. We sat down and each put together our top five tips and combined them into this list. It was so insightful hearing things from his perspective, and I’m excited to share it with you! I think this could be great for newlyweds too.

This video and these images were shot at and sponsored by Radisson Blu Sandton. We had the most epic stay at their hotel as they put us in the same three-storey presidential suite once occupied by Barack Obama! We also enjoyed the most delicious food both in their halal-friendly restaurant and as room service. My favourite part about it though had to be the breathtaking views of Sandton’s greenery from way up. I saw a whole other side to Johannesburg that I’ve never seen and had the privilege to admire before, and it’s something I definitely will never forget!
