We are married for...
Our story started way back when we were still in Kindergarten. Yes, we were so young!
Read more details below about our journey from kinder to forever!
We met as classmates at the University of the Philippines Integrated School. He told everybody that he had a crush on her. She felt super awkward.
Years passed as he tried to make her notice him. Luckily, thanks to the invention of cellphones, what started as one text message ended up as late night calls.
We became really good friends and automatically turned each other as Prom Dates. There were no Promposals back then, life was easy!
Two years of friendship plus let's be honest some flirty texts with 6 months of courtship later, we made it official! It was a sweet "yes".
We went in University of the Philippines. He picked Art while she went into Engineering. We had completely opposite degrees but we helped each other out.
Shortly after graduation, she moved to Houston, TX. We decided to stay together. Daily Viber and weekly Skype calls kept our long distance relationship strong.
We lived in two different worlds but we made sure to shorten the distance and see each other once a year. We would always reconnect in our happy place.
Three weeks was the only time we had every visit so we try to make every second extra special. Our first out-of-the-country trip in Tokyo, Japan was one for the books.
After 10 years of partnership, 5 of which in long distance, he marked it with a proposal during sunset in front of our friends. Now, we're on our way to forever.
We want to make everything convenient and easy as much as possible so we already did the homework for you.
