The Day I Got Married

I can still clearly recall the day I married the man I love. It was a rainy afternoon back in September 2014 when we finally tied the knot after 3 years and 3 months as a couple. A lot of my relatives and a few good, long-time friends were present during that moment, and of course nuclear families of both sides.


Marriage is a lifetime commitment. I understand its context very much. In fact, we originally planned to wed in 2012 when he came back from Qatar after working as an accountant in a local hotel there for a year. We already had enough savings, a pair of wedding rings, and my wedding gown (which was a gift from my aunt) by that time, but I personally wanted to be 100% sure (emotionally, spiritually, and mentally) before I say the wedding vows in God’s name.


While we have known each other since we were 17, I thought that we haven’t seen each others’ dark sides yet and we were in the early stage of our relationship to be so sure of what we feel for each other. We’ve been friends before we had the label and we’ve been into previous relationships before. As friends, we both put our best foot forward. However, as days, months, and years passed, we became so comfortable with each other that we finally let loose. Yes, there were times when ours was a love-hate relationship. We broke up once (if you can call it a breakup), which only lasted for an hour. Like other couples, we got our fair share of relationship problems. Thankfully, we chose not to give up on each other.


We were very hands-on with the wedding planning since we were both in a work-from-home set-up (until now actually).


Fast forward to the wedding day…


I literally was feeling butterflies in my stomach when the clock hit 11:00 A.M. Yes, it’s most girls’ dream (if not all)  to walk down the aisle and marry the man she loves, but then again marriage requires two distinct individuals their whole lives to stay faithful to each other and to love each other through thick and thin, which alone is already a scary thought. Besides, you won’t really know a person’s truest color until you live in one roof.


Walking down the aisle, I was very nervous although it didn’t show as I was giggling the entire time because I was stepping into my gown while my groom, on the other end, was already shedding tears. Yes, he was more emotional than I was, and that gave me an overwhelming feeling of being loved.


Our wedding day was the commencement of everything we have gone through together. Luckily, God gave me the man who fulfilled my dream to get married. Cliche as it sounds, when you are right there experiencing that momentous event of your life, you will realize why it never worked out with anyone else. You will just be so grateful to see the person you love, making vows to protect you, nurture you, and love you as long as you live. Once in my life, I felt like a princess. Believe me, getting married is that magical and it is something that I will always enjoy looking back on!


Forget about the hurt and the drama. If you haven’t found the one for you, don’t dwell in self-pity. Go out and live your life because only when you have learned to love yourself and feel comfortable with your own company will God send you the one you’re destined to be with in this life. Don’t ask for someone who will complete you because nobody will. Instead, pray and wait for that one person who will complement you. Trust me, meron ‘yan kasi akala ko rin noon wala pero dumating s’ya nung panahong hindi ko inaasahan.
