Is age an issue when choosing your life partner? Sifiso wasn’t sure and worried about the eight year age gap between him and his bride, Pelaelo. At the end of the day, love won through and the viewers couldn’t have been happier for the couple. See their comments here.

Celebrity age gaps

Sifiso and Pelaelo aren’t alone and the eight years that separate them is hardly the biggest age gap we’ve seen.


Notorioulsy tight-lipped about their relationship, music icons Jay-Z and Beyonce met in the studio in 2002. Despite their 12-year age gap, they married in a super-secret ceremony in New York seven years later. They’ve been happily married ever since with a baby girl named Blue Ivy coming along in 2012.



Hollywood super-couple Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie first fell in love on the set of Mr & Mrs Smith in 2005 and they weren’t going to let a small thing like a 12 year age difference keep them apart. The couple finally got married in 2014 and have six children.

Woman on top


For those with fantasies of marrying an older woman, take heart from the example set by Mariah Carey and Nick Cannon. Carey, who is 10 years Cannon’s senior, said yes after a short, six-week courtship. They tied the knot at a secret wedding in the Bahamas in 2008. Unfortunately it’s not all happy endings with Cannon filing for divorce in 2014.

Cradle snatching


It’s one thing marrying someone a number of years your senior but it’s quite another marrying someone old enough to be your grandfather. That’s exactly what Playboy Playmate Crystal Harris did when she married notorious cradle robber Hugh Hefner in 2012. Some may disagree but, with Hef a grand total of 60 years older than Harris, this may be taking things a little far.
