I was having a good time alone. After 4 years of staying single, I seem to be doing fine, working and having fun with family and friends. I was going on about my own thing to do and stuffs.
After 4 break-ups from past boyfriends, I was just setting my mind to staying single and pursuing my profession. I was having a hard time with relationships because it seems like I was looking for something, for someone of qualities, not perfection but someone who would fill me and complete me. Someone who will be my strength and will be my upper when i'm depressed.
I was in college when I get to know him better, although I knew about him already like since grade school because he was my brother's barkada. It was not until I was working when he courted me.
I have a long-standing relationship of almost 5 years. But during our 4th year, my girlfriend made a mess with me. It was that time when I was having my review for the board exam in Cebu and she was in Tacloban, we were like a boat-ride and a bus-ride away. It would work if we have our loyalty to each other. I found out she was having an affair. I broke up but then tried to win her again but she refused. I tried to go on my way, doing the things I need to do and tried to forget her when suddenly, she tried to make up with me. I was confused but decided not to make up with her.
Months after that, I decided to court my barkada's sister in spite.
I receive a text one night from him.
We texted and text and then decided to meet.
Of course, we were laughing because all of a sudden I was with my brother's barkada and he was with his barkada's sister.
Note: In seminarians, (he was one in high school, that's when they became good friends) courting one of their friends sister is a mortal sin.
It was a hidden relationship at first, because we were afraid to tell. But against all odds, we did finally broke up the news and told everyone in the family and friends that we were together.
Months passed and I got engaged.
We prepared for a church wedding months after.
And so , that's how we started as a we.... together..
That's how my ex-boyfriend became my husband.
Where we are now... - We are on our 8th year and counting...

It maybe a small amount of time spent together but we hope to have more and it means a lot to us.
It's not an easy road chosen but with understanding and patience, we will go a long way.
Like my mother said, marriage life is never a bed of roses... learn to deal with it...
The Most Important Thing is that...
We keep our promise to stand by in good or bad, ups and downs and to pray in spite all... To communicate and to respect each other till the end..
