-It was love at first sight for Butch but it was just boredom for her
-But he is persistent and she doesn't want a boring student life and ended as sweethearts and became a couple
-They married each other after 7 years but grief made their marriage sway but God has His way
It was in college when she and Butch met. He was love struck the first time he met her.
But she wasn't interested.
He didn't like his being 'jeprox' and it seems to her that he was trouble.
But Butch has his ways and made it very clear he likes her.
She didn't want to spend student life with just studying. Her motto was to be adventurous and grab a cute boyfriend.
Though fear came through her mind that what if he do something nasty her, he throws the inhibitions and went along with him.
“I am going to marry you one day. I will be a lawyer. You just see.”. Butch promised, whispering to her ear.
But he didn’t meet the university requirements of passing 21 units, 60% passing of all subjects and to have a passing grade in at least 4 units.
The verdict was expulsion from the state university.
She wanted him to appeal but he didn't want to. He had no hope.
“No, I don’t have hope. I will move to San Beda then take up Law after college”
“You are going to graduate AB Political Science from UP and proceed to the College of Law”, and he was convinced by her.
Thanks to the Dean, Butch was given a reconsideration. He passed all his subjects and eventually studied Law.
She still remembers how Butch was a gentleman. He'd kiss her but that just was it. Friends didn't believe them.
But, she still had fears if Butch can be suitable to be husband.
Two years later, holding pizza and a dozen red roses, Butch took me by surprise as he knelt down and proposed marriage.
It was romantic, she taught.
They got married after 7 years they first met in college.
But 8 years ago, they nearly separated when their son died. Butch wanted to talk about it while she just wanted to keep it herself.
She decided to escape and run away from crying Butch.
But God has his ways of bringing her back to him. She suffered a fracture which required insertion of metal rods onto her right tibia and ankle bone. Butch got hold of her accident and drove to Medical City.
He insisted on taking care of her.
He lived with him again and worked things out.
With the help of a caring grief counselor, they sorted out their problems and renewed their commitment to work on their marriage.
"Our love is best seen as devotion and action, not just an emotion. Our love during those college sweethearts ‘ days were based on shallow emotions towards each other.
Today, our devotion to each other has truly led us to true love."
"Yes, young love is possible, dear girls. Our love will always be a work in progress till death do us part."
