On January 24 1975, James and Crystal tied the knot at Wynberg Magistrate’s Court. He was nineteen and she seventeen. At the time, statistics were heavily stacked against them. They were told only 50% of young couples survive beyond five years of marriage.
Miraculously, they survived the challenges they faced. They are blessed with five children. Jane, Christa, Philippa, James and Brent. In addition to this, they raised and became parents to her late sister’s children, Stanley, Bradley, Quinton and Gillene Sedgwick.
They relate their story and offer sound advice to those who are planning to embark on the important step of entering into a vow of Holy Matrimony. They take us on a journey of winding roads, challenges, happiness, sadness, disappointments, but most importantly, the success of their marriage. After 41 years their marriage is still thriving and they are more in love today than they were then.
The institution of marriage is challenged these days, and they hope to contribute in a positive manner to the preservation of this important ordinance of God.
Through their personal experience, they make alive the joy, and purpose of marriage.
