A total of 280 couples were finally unified Friday, by Mayor Aldrin San Pedro at the Muntinlupa City Hall Quadrangle as part of the city’s annual Kasalang Panlungsod.
The event is a yearly undertaking that primarily legalizes the partnership of live-in couples through mass marriage.
The oldest couple who finally got to tie the knot were Arturo O. Tirona, 61 years old, and Leticia Escobillo, 58 years old.
Among this crowd was Jeffry Broñola, 18 years old, with his partner Aubrey Ann Avila, 19 years old, who were listed as the youngest couple to take vows. They led the event’s wine toast.
Mayor San Pedro emphasized the project’s cause that is to finally officiate the relationships of these couples who first resorted to living in together due to financial constraints.
Aside from the oldest and youngest couple citations, this year’s Kasalang Panlungsod recognized couples who celebrated their natal day alongside with their big day and also those who had the same birthday to whom special awards were also given.#
