Is it a decision you made when you want a life beyond your fantasies... Is it a choice to live with someone totally not related to you but may mean your whole world? Is it a responsibility you have to take to make yourself worthier as a person and as an independent member of the society who has the ability to develop own productive family? Or is it an obligation of your spirituality as a good child of God to reproduce an ideal image of humanity?
As I look back eighteen years of my married life, I realized that MARRIAGE is a continuous learning process. It has a beginning but it's like a RING that is endless. It's round like a circle with a center. It has a top and bottom part and may contain slices of different cuts depending on a couple's priorities. It is a cycle that repeats itself... a sphere of eternal commitment.
|Our Civil Wedding: January 18, 1995|
Never have I experienced a grand wedding with all the extensive planning and sleepless nights... stress on the preparation up to the actual day of the occasion. Never have I walked down the aisle with a full entourage with flower girls spreading petals around and sponsors of high profiles. I only had my husband, my firstborn and the ring that bind us until now.
|Our Church Wedding: July 18, 1998|
It was only three years after our civil marriage held January 18, 1995 that we decided to have our simple church wedding. I was conceiving with my second child while our eldest daughter was standing beside us witnessing the ceremony to unfold.
Ours is not a marriage made in heaven but a union made to share forever. May our Good Lord continue to bless us with His ever gracious hand and guide us in fulfilling our sacred vow of unconditional LOVE, RESPECT and LOYALTY to each other. May He grant us good health and ethereal strength to raise our children... provide for them and lead them to a righteous path.
Eighteen years of togetherness is quite a lot of reminiscing. I still remember all those FIRST TIMEs... they seem to be as fresh as they were then.
Indeed, there's yet a long road to travel with bumps and hurdles along the way but we have each other to endure those obstacles.
And this is my renewal of vow to my husband ARIEL:
"Through thick and thin...
through joy and pain...
through sickness and health...
I want to
GROW OLD WITH YOU."
