Gontse (Khany­isile Zwane) is all too aware that her mar­riage with Ndu (Andile Sit­hole) is in deep trou­ble and by Wed­nes­day 1 March, it be­comes very clear that Ndu is avoid­ing sex with her. “She ac­tu­ally ques­tions if it’s her who’s to blame. She has all these in­se­cu­ri­ties be­cause if you’re try­ing to be ro­man­tic with your hus­band sex­u­ally and he doesn’t want to en­gage with you or be in­ti­mate with you, you ask your­self ques­tions like that. And now that her mom is liv­ing with them, maybe that has had an ef­fect on them be­ing dis­tant,” says Khany­isile. The doubt will drive Gontse to a des­per­ate course of ac­tion… un­til the real cul­prit comes to light.

TRY ANY­THING

At first Gontse goes out of her way to be the per­fect wife. “She re­mains lov­ing to her hus­band and she does her du­ties in the house to keep him happy. She thinks she must give it an­other try… and an­other try,” says Khany­isile. “She even wears some nice lingerie for him but still things don’t work.” Not un­der­stand­ing where Ndu’s grow­ing in­dif­fer­ence is com­ing from, Gontse even weighs up a sug­ges­tion on Tues­day 7 March that she try muti. “She wants to do it to save her mar­riage, but there’s also this fear be­cause it’s not some­thing that she be­lieves in. But she’s think­ing of her son’s fu­ture and sort­ing that out,” says Khany­isile.

FOOL FOR LOVE

But the next week Gontse’s per­spec­tive on the cause of the prob­lems shifts dra­mat­i­cally thanks to an in­ci­dent that starts her ques­tion­ing her mar­riage com­pletely. “She feels be­trayed be­cause they’ve made a prom­ise to­gether and they are re­spon­si­ble for their child’s life and fu­ture. She feels like he’s made a fool of her. She re­ally feels be­trayed,” says Khany­isile. And in an ef­fort to un­der­stand what her op­tions are, she goes to visit her fa­ther. “Her dad tells her, ‘Just un­der­stand that men will al­ways have rov­ing eyes.’ She doesn’t get sat­is­fac­tion from that ad­vice!” But the visit does make her re­alise that there’s re­ally only one deal­breaker for her – if Ndu’s in love with the other woman, it’s game over!

Gontse’s ef­forts to se­duce her hubby Ndu are in vain.
