Through sickness and in health, till death do us part…this is the vows recited by couples who swore to love each other till the end. It’s so easy to say these words when both partners are healthy and able at the time of the wedding. It could be more difficult when one of them can’t function normally anymore, as he or she will be a liability to the other. This woman proved that she really loved her man, who is paralyzed and bedridden. She still married him.
Christian was already paralyzed when Angela met him. Chances are strong that he will spend the rest of his life confined to a wheelchair, but this didn’t deter Angela to stay with him for keeps.
Their wedding vows are truly touching!
Angela: “Ang tanging hiling ko sa Diyos ay yung bigyan ako ng isang taong mahalin ako ng lubos. Hindi ako maghahanap, maghihintay ako. At sinabi ko sa sarili ko, na kapag dumating ang araw na yun, hinding-hindi ko siya pakakawalan.”
Christian: “Angela, hindi mo ko iniwan. Kahit anong nangyari sa akin, andyan ka pa din sa tabi ko. Kung iniwan mo ako, hindi kita mahahabol. Gusto ko man mag-walk out kapag nag-aaway tayo, hindi ko magawa dahil hindi ako makatayo.
Christian was beside himself with tears during his wedding. Angela looked very much in love with her husband-to-be, kissing and hugging him.
True love still exists!
