Husband to small screen veteran actress and entrepreneur Sophie Lichaba has come under attack from some women for staying in their marriage. The Businessman, Max Lichaba, who has endured many obstacles in his marriage is reported to have been getting stinging messages from some women claiming that he is foolish to stay with the ailing actress.
This also comes after the actress who played Queen Moroka in the soapie, Generations, dramatically lost weight in 2018 which attracted curiosity as to why. Some went as far as to say she had an illness, with many speculating that she had HIV or cancer. However, Sophie was then forced to publicly open up about her fight with diabetes.Speaking to online publication, Timeslive, Sophie revealed that although her marriage had suffered many challenges she was grateful that her husband had stuck with her through all the tribulations.
My husband is still getting messages from silly women saying, ‘That woman is not for you, she’s dying’. But I am better, so you understand it’s a constant fight with the world too.
It’s up to you as a couple to make things work … spending quality time will make things work. It’s an open contract of love.
Sophie said support was what kept a marriage strong and no hurdle should be too challenging to overcome.
Imagine a man or woman who will love you in obesity, anorexia and depression. The person you are now … that’s what it means surviving situations together as one.
The actress said she was happy that her husband meant everything he said when he married her. This also comes barely weeks after the couple renewed the marriage on Valentines Day with a new set of rings to prove their love stood the test of time.
We got married after just a few months of dating, literally four months and we had signed. He wanted to reassure me and our families that it was not just excitement.
We were renewing our marriage commitment and love for each other. Committing again to what we initially committed to before God and our families.
