”When I met my wife, I wasn’t able to afford her a ring or a wedding so I never proposed. We were in love and we didn’t want to wait before we could build a future together. Now we have two beautiful kids and we are still not married. The money we make we use to provide for our little family. I know most girls dream about a wedding but not once did she complain about the fact that we are not married. She knows that even without that ring, she is my lady, my wife and I am her husband.”
(Manila, Philippines)
