Pauline and Malcolm discovered that not only were they soulmates but they actually shared the same birthdate. They first met at a church event and Malcolm at first seemed not to be interested in Pauline. However one night, he gave her her lift to a church event. After the end of the event, snacks were served and Malcolm asked Pauline to save some snack for him.

They kept talking after that and as they say the rest is history. 

At the time they met, they were both at their lowest point. Malcolm didn't have a job while Pauline had just come out of a relationship. Malcolm confessed that he could not even bring himself to let Pauline see the kind of phone he had - it was small and had seen better days.

When her friend Nomsa, heard that she had found love again, she was happy that he met Malcolm in church. When their relationship blossomed and wanted to get married, she fell pregnant and they had to postpone it until the child was at least a year old.

Pauline describes her relationship with Malcolm as "effortless" and she doesn't have to be somebody else to please him. "He makes it easy for me to be me".

During the wedding ceremony, it finally dawned on Pauline that her husband was going to be the person she was going to spend the rest of her life with. Since the parents were not around to attend the ceremony, Malcolm stepped in to give a speech - that literally melted Pauline's heart. "I danced with him and told him how adorable he is. 

In the end, the couple received a sweet surprise from the host, Kalenga Mubanga.
