“Marriage is not about two perfect people…but it is about two people who are not perfect, but realize that they need each other.” (paraphrased from the homily)
I was in Manila very recently for my friend Rommel’s wedding…he had asked me to go almost a year ago before it happened, and I had promised, so I went. 🙂 It was a very nice, intimate wedding, with the entourage all clad prettily in pink, and happy. Quite small a wedding for a big family, but it was the kind where people knew each other, and the guests all knew the couple’s story.
Rommel and Tala had a sweet little love story…he was an intern in the hospital, and she was a nurse in Ward 3, while he was rotating there. He had a crush on her, and was mesmerized by her smile. This story, he told me before, but when he told it again to the family and friends who were there to wish them well, it sounded even more amusing. Well, they eventually became friends, and then, they became a couple, and then they decided to get married.
It is one of those love stories where you know that they were matured enough to just focus on each others’ needs and making each other happy. They never bothered anyone, and they obviously didn’t have any drama. Very nice and clear cut, all the way.
I have no doubt that this couple’s marriage will last, there’s love, effort and the desire to make each other happy… in their own special way. 🙂
