In this world full of critics and judgemental person, we couldn’t expect that our lives will be peaceful and far from mean comments. People have always something to say especially when a person did something that is far from the usual or something they weren’t expected.
But what is the real definition of love and happiness? Love is the only thing that keeps the universe intact and it brought so much happiness especially if you found that special someone who looks at you beyond all imperfection.
This couple is certainly imperfect when we talk about stereotype but perfect in the sense that love made them one. The term Imperfectly perfect is probably the best term to describe couple Erlo and Mara who define what true and unconditional love means.
Back in 2013, Erlo and Mara captured the heart of many netizens when their wedding video went viral on social media. The wedding was captured by popular wedding videographer Jason Magbanua and aside from that fact, their one-of-a-kind love story was beautifully captured that made us look at true love in a whole new level.
Despite the disability which makes Erlo “imperfect” in the eyes of critics, the perfectly beautiful Mara accepted him not just a person but also a husband. Love and destiny brought them together and ended up in the altar professing their love through the most touching vows we have ever heard.
Erlo said with tears in his eyes:
“Alam mo, ang dami kong tanong sa Diyos. Bakit ganun? Bakit ako? Wala naman akong natatanggap na sagot. Pero ngayong nasa harap na kita, alam ko na ikaw ang sagot sa lahat ng tanong ko, sa lahat ng dasal ko, sobra-sobra pa.”
Mara said on the other hand:
“I believe I’m the helpmate God designed especially for you. And I promise to be the arms that you need to reach your star and the legs that you need to take too big steps. My arms and legs are made to be the extension of yours.”
Five years after, Erlo and Mara were gifted with a handsome and healthy baby boy they called Liam.
