Former Senator Bongbong Marcos took her wife Mary Louise "Liza" Cacho Araneta-Marcos out on a date on October 17.
In his Facebook page, he posted a photo that is now going viral with the caption, "Date night."
Bongbong and Liza's love story is a proof that there is a happy ending and that happily ever after does exist.
In an article published by Woman Today on February 15, 2016, Bongbong shared that she first met Liza in New York in 1987 through their mutual friends. Liza was working as a lawyer in the Big Apple while during that time he was attending the trial of his mother, former First Lady Imelda Marcos.
The former senator recalled how their love story blossomed, “We were very comfortable with each other and we got along really well. We both had this warped sense of humor and so we laughed a lot at everything and everybody.”
Liza, on the other hand, can still remember the thing about Bongbong that left a mark on her.
"There was never any animosity in him. Mabait talaga siyang tao (He is really a nice person). If I had to go through what he went through, I’d probably be bitter and angry at all those balimbings. Pero siya, hindi. He was kind even to those who betrayed his family the most," she said recollecting that critical time when the Marcos family had just been exiled.
Bongbong described Liza as the epitome of energy and life, a strong, and confident woman who is always on the go.
He also disclosed what keeps him falling for her wife over and over again, "There was never a dull moment when she was around. At the same time, though, there was this serenity about her that calmed my whole being."
The two tied the knot in a chapel in Italy through a touching ceremony with only few select people invited to witness their vows.
Netizens can't help but comment on how the long-time couple inspired them.
