JOHANNESBURG, South Africa — South African couple Thithi Nteta and Dylan Lloyd have different accounts of how they met and fell in love.
“We were friends for about a year,” said Nteta, a 28-year-old stylist.
“I like to say that I was courting her for about a year,” said Lloyd, 38.
One thing they agree on is that neither considered the other’s race before deciding to become involved – even though Nteta is black and Lloyd white and they live in South Africa, a country still healing the wounds caused by apartheid.
Twenty-five years ago, strict laws against relationships between whites and so-called non-whites would have made their love illegal.Read story on NBCNews.com>
