Posts Tagged ‘50th wedding anniversary’


Yes, I do believe there is forever. Forever in the sense that a married couple is still together when they reach fifty golden years.

This morning, we attended the 5oth  Wedding Anniversary of  Nissa’s parents-in law at the  Malolos Cathedral (Minor Basilica of our Lady of the Immaculate Conception) in Malolos City, Bulacan.

Malolos Cathedral (before the start of the wedding).

It is quite far from our place but we enjoyed the camaraderie and the solemnity of the occasion. Nissa, Obet and Nate are included in the entourage. There was a portion of the program after the wedding when their four kids and the grandchildren were allowed to speak before the bride and the groom and I was touched when Obet, my son-in-law said: “Yes, the goal is to reach fifty years too with  Nissa”. Wow!  I was touched. The official photos are not in yet but we enjoyed a few moments trying the photo booth. Nate was the last to speak and he just said, “We love you both” then shyly gave back the microphone to the emcee.

Nate said while holding the crowns before the photo shoot: ” Mommy wear this.  you are the queen and I am the prince” and Nissa obliged.  Haha, smart kid.

Fifty years together.  My balae  now uses a cane  when he walks. He is quite frail but his wife is still so beautiful  in her mid-seventies. Fifty years of togetherness. It is seldom to see couples nowadays reaching that long married life. Either one is gone or   they are separated or living apart from each other.

Maintaining a relationship is not a walk in the park. Even if you are both matured enough to face each trial and celebrate happy times together, there is always something that sets you apart. When trust, respect and loyalty are gone, love slowly dies too.  Love does not walk away but people do.
