A South African “engaged” couple who dated for five years and are expecting their first child were have been left in turmoil after they found out that they were brother and sister, separated after their parents’ bitter divorce. They discovered the truth when they wanted to introduce their single parent families to each other before they got married.
They had been separated as children and raised independently after their mother and father went through a bitter divorce in 1983.
The pair grew up 80km (50miles) apart in separate towns in South Africa’s eastern Mpumalanga province. By chance, they met again at university in 2007 and the woman said it was ‘love at first sight’.
