To have and to hold from this day forward; for better or for worse, for richer or for poorer, in sickness and in health, to love and to cherish, ’till death do us part.
That’s what couples vowed to each other during their wedding day, but nowadays, young couples doesn’t even see the relevance of their vows. Many result to failed marriages, leaving children staggering and desperate for love from both parents.
Meet this couple, though, as Christian and Angela proved that marriage does not end after just saying your vows. Matrimony is the union of two people who will be there, despite their differences and inspite of the problems they might face.
Even if Christian is already paralyzed and bedridden, the young couple still went on with their marriage.
They are in love and not a single illness can bring them down.
“Ang tanging hiling ko sa Diyos ay ‘yung bigyan ako ng isang taong mamahalin ako nang lubos. Hindi ako maghahanap, maghihintay ako. At sinabi ko sa sarili ko, na kapag dumating ang araw na ‘yun, hinding-hindi ko sya pakakawalan,” Angela tells Christian during their wedding, as they say their solemn promises to each other.
With that, the groom responds, “Angela, hindi mo ako iniwan. Kahit anong nangyari sa akin, nandyan ka pa rin sa tabi ko. Kung iniwan mo ako, hindi kita mahahabol. Gusto ko man magwalk-out kapag nag-aaway tayo, hindi ko magawa dahil hindi ako makatayo.”
Touching, right? Tag the love of your life and let him/her know how much he/she means to you!
