LAOAG CITY, Aug. 31 (PIA) – As part of the month-long “A Cause for August” celebration, Laoag City held a free mass wedding at the Laoag City Hall on Tuesday, August 29.
“A Cause for August” is a continuing service of the local government through livelihood, environmental, and education programs that are meant to bring on-the-ground projects for all ages. The mass wedding is one of its features.
Over 30 couples exchanged “I dos” as City Mayor Chevylle Fariñas officiated the ceremony.
In her message to the newlyweds, she challenged the husbands to step up in loving their wives.
“After this wedding, it does not mean you will live a problem-less life in this world. But you will face all these problems together,” she said.
Moreover, the first woman mayor of Laoag shared a key to long-lasting marriage.
“When facing failures in life, always go back to this very moment you agreed not to leave your partners,” she said. (JNPD/MJTAB/PIA-1, Ilocos Norte)
