SULTAN KUDARAT, Jan. 3 (by Ramil Bajo) — It started with a chance meeting and both Lolo Ponso and Lola Adeng fell in love to each other.
They got married on December 31, 1951, and since then, they have been together, glued on each other despite the “trials” that tried to break them apart. They fought for a strong relationship and they won.
Last Friday (Dec. 31, 2021), they showed again how strong they are in defying the “storms” of their marriage for nearly seven decades.In a simple celebration prepared by their sons and daughters in Barangay Salabaca in Esperanza, Sultan Kudarat, the old couple celebrated their 69 years of being together.
Lolo Ponso and Lola Adeng, both 91 years old that day, still felt the magic of love.
LG Salvador Librella, one of the couple’s granddaughters, proudly posted the couple’s 69 years wedding anniversary in her FB account.
“Simple lang ang celebration nila pero makikita mo sa kay Lolo Ponso at Lola Adeng ang sobrang saya,” LG said in a messenger interview.
LG said when Lolo Ponso offered flowers and kissed Lola Adeng, “you will still see the presence of attraction and love that strongly binded them for almost 69 years ago.” ###
