There’s no turning back,
Manny tells bridegrooms
BY CHRYSEE SAMILLANO
Philippine ring icon and Sarangani Rep. Manny Pacquiao and Senator Franklin Drilon became ninongs (godfathers) to 2,013 couples Saturday afternoon at an event dubbed the biggest mass wedding in Philippine history.
“Marriage is a lifetime commitment, it has no expiration date,” Pacquiao told his 4,026 godchildren gathered at the grounds of the Bacolod City Government Center for the mass wedding officiated by Bacolod Mayor Evelio Leonardia.
The boxing icon told the couples whose ages ranged from 18 to 82, that marriage is no joke, one has to work on it, and that patience is important.
