Fariñas for granting their collective wish to be legally married to their respective individual partners in a free mass civil wedding ceremony held at the city auditorium here recently.

Mayor Fariñas said that the activity was part of the Aug. 28 birthday celebration of her husband Vice Mayor Michael Farinas, who initiated similar yearly free mass wedding during his 9-year term as then city mayor.

Records showed that the said 39 couples have been living under one roof as common-law-partners for years (all had bore children?) hence, they availed of the free mass wedding.
