Feature: Pastor Advises Husbands Not to Hurt Feelings of Wives
Not only the bride was amazed by the preachings of Rev. Raymund Albacete, of Fundamental Baptist Church, officiating minister in the wedding ceremony ofFloren Estrebor and Marilou Sabio. All the wives and women who were witnesses to the ceremony yesterday, at Apollo Resto, Hilado Street, Bacolod City, were, too.
Rev. Albacete’s reminders were mostly focused on the groom. He said, lots of husbands do not know the needs of their wives. Number 1 is security. Assure her that what you have told her when you were courting that she is the only woman in your life, will be the same throughout your life.
Listen to her burst and agony, and even small things because it shows you are sincere to her. Considering women are fond of buying some decorative items in the house, support her.
Importantly, don’t hurt the feelings of your wife by womanizing. Same will be done to your daughter. The pain inside her heart is beyond compare to the pain from the bullets.
To the bride, Rev. Albacete advised her to understand the basic needs of men. Do not use language that can loss his self-esteem or pride. Do not gossip the bad traits of your husband because that is blasphemus.
To both, bride and groom, Rev. Albacete reminded them that marriage is a sacred union. What God has joined together, no one can put asunder. Maintain closer walk with God, whoever commits flaws ask forgiveness, do not let the sun set without settling your trouble. Wife, submit to your husband, husband, love your wife as God loves his church. Starting today, you will have lots of changes in life. One is language. You can no longer say, mine but our, because the two become one. Also, you still have obligations to take care and support your parents.
To the 41 principal sponsors, as co-parents, Rev. Albacete reminds them to be open always to support the couple as their god-children.
Marilou is a public school teacher. A father orphaned, and the last among 5 children of Jasmin, a widow, to settle down. Jasmin said she has no remorse on the marriage of Marilou because she is a responsible child.
While Floren, resident of Pulupandan, Negros Occidental, is a policeman assigned in Bago City Police Station. His parents Felizardo and Luz Estrebor are supportive of his wedding because he has been a good child. He was the ones who spent for the education of her sister until graduated engineering course and took the board exam. Mrs. Luz said Floren is the 4th among the 6 children to settle down.
Dr. Victoria Cainglet, dean, graduate school, WNU, principal sponsor, wishes the new couple the best of everything in their lives. As they enter the new chapter of their lives, there maybe challenges, difficulties, the road maybe rough, but just bear in mind, there is SOMEONE above who is taking care of you. Just cling to Him. While Dr. Eleanor Rondez, professor, graduate school, WNU said: there is no simple cook book recipe to make marriage work. Give your best to make your marriage work by putting God at the center of your marital life. Congratulations.
Dr. Gregorio Moyani, DEPED-Bacolod Division, also professor at the graduate school of WNU said, am glad Marilou invited me as one of ninongs. I hope their relationship will last forever and put God as the center of their lives.
Veil sponsor Atty. Michael Hanz Villaster has simple advice in coined word. TODAY: for trust, openness, dialogue, acceptance and yearning.
Mrs.Alexis Alisan, ninang of Floren from childhood baptism to wedding ceremony describes Floren as a very refined person, not involved in any trouble among the youth, and has no derogatory record in their community.
His Ninong PO3 Juliebert Dalumpines, Floren’s senior officer, publicly admitted that he was the ones who bridge Floren and Marilou by pretending to apprehend the boys who play "tumbo" in the school premises, where Marilou teaches. That started their relationship.
