Gail and Kabelo don’t claim a perfect marriage

Gail and Bouga Luv are very open about the challenges they face in their marriage. The couple often boasts about the beauty of imperfect love. News24 reported that during a gender-based violence campaign, the two celebs opened up about facing tough issues in marriage. Kabelo said:

“Our marriage from the onset has been a platform and an environment conducive to talking about serious, hard issues. My wife has had to call me out on certain things and behaviours and we have had to deal with issues head-on.

“We are open, honest and we communicate, and it hasn’t been an overnight process. But we had to teach each other.”
