The claim for the wedding, according to the boy's family, it was a child's grandfather's request. "He asked you to marry before he died. He chose Helen because he loves her. In doing so, did the ancestors happy. If we had not done the wedding, something bad would have happened in the family, "said the mother of Sanele, Patience Masilela, 46.

For families, the event was more a ritual, since there was no marriage certificate, and the two do not live together. But the couple came to exchange rings and kiss. And they spent a lot of money on the ceremony, because they believed that was what the ancestors wanted.
