Does it feel like you and your bae are from dif­fer­ent plan­ets? Well, op­po­sites at­tract, just like in the new Se­curex Ac­tive Hy­giene Soap. Meet the three cou­ples who took the ul­ti­mate yin & yang quiz.

True Love - - PARENTING -


“We are def­i­nite op­po­sites. He likes rock, I de­spise it. I love my house mu­sic, which he doesn’t get but ul­ti­mately, we both get to learn from each other’s favourite mu­sic gen­res. I’m a health freak while he prefers to have am­ag­winya and atchaar for break­fast, ac­com­pa­nied by a whole lot of sweets. Our food pref­er­ences have taught us the im­por­tance of bal­ance and com­pro­mise as we al­ways try to meet each other's needs when or­der­ing food. He doesn’t con­sume al­co­hol at all, while I en­joy the oc­ca­sional glass of wine or cham­pagne — how con­ve­nient be­cause I al­ways have a des­ig­nated driver [chuck­les]! Our view­points on life and ev­ery­thing else in be­tween are so dif­fer­ent — he’s more of a straight talker while I’m al­ways nurs­ing peo­ple’s feel­ings. In some weird and won­der­ful way, I’m learn­ing to be tougher and him a lit­tle softer. Should we win, we will put the money to­wards pay­ing off the R26 000 bal­ance for our Egypt hol­i­day this Oc­to­ber. The pur­pose of the trip is to cel­e­brate our birth­days — mine is on 19 Oc­to­ber, and his on the 20th. He’s a year older than me but once a year on the 19th of Oc­to­ber, we get to be the same age [chuck­les]! Win­ning this com­pe­ti­tion will truly be one of the best birth­day gifts ever!”


“If you were to put us in two sep­a­rate rooms and task us with draw­ing shapes, they would with­out a shadow of doubt be dif­fer­ent. I'm more likely to draw a cir­cle, and I'm quite cer­tain that he'd opt for a square. Like a cir­cle, I take things easy and al­ways trust that I'll end up where I started. He on the other hand, is pre­cise and cal­cu­la­tive like a square. He doesn’t mind ex­plor­ing var­i­ous op­tions to get to the bot­tom of any­thing. If we win, we’ll def­i­nitely in­ject some of the money into our busi­ness. We can’t re­mem­ber when last we were on hol­i­day so we would also go on a week­end get­away with our one-year-old son. Life, af­ter all, is about cre­at­ing beau­ti­ful mem­o­ries.”


“We are a yin and yang cou­ple, but our love is strong re­gard­less of our dif­fer­ences. Aldo’s spir­i­tual philoso­phies ex­ist some­where be­tween Hin­duism and Rasta­far­i­an­ism. I’m from a Chris­tian back­ground, but I’m more spir­i­tual than re­li­gious which makes our con­nec­tion ef­fort­less. This is how we would spend the prize money: Firstly, we would do­nate R1000 worth of san­i­tary pads to the non-profit or­gan­i­sa­tion, Spon­sor An African Child and an­other R1000 to Spark Bram­ley’s San­i­tary Towel Drive. With the rest of the money, we’d like to cel­e­brate our love with our blended fam­ily by do­ing some­thing out of the or­di­nary.”
