The couple tied the knot and today have a four-year-old son. So in love is Sokoine that he has disregarded tradition of marrying other women as most Maasai men do. He has also gone out of his way to learn a bit of German way of life to make sure his wife is as comfortable as she can get.

On the other hand, Stephanie is so smitten with her tall Maasai man that she does everything that a Maasai wife is expected to do in her house from fetching firewood, cooking, fetching water and taking care of the homestead. She also knows a thing or two about the Maasai culture, beliefs and traditions

In their nine years of marriage, the two say their union, though filled with rough patches like any other marriage has stood the test of time and brought pure bliss to their lives.
