Love story of the Monsods
Rosalinda L. Orosa (The Philippine Star) - February 11, 2013 - 12:00am

 MANILA, Philippines - Make it a habit to hold hands. Find time to be together. Write notes. Be good friends. Pray for passion. Crack jokes, especially when arguments arise.

These are just some of the reasons why the Monsod couple, Mareng Winnie and Christian, now married for over 51 years, remains together, as they are interviewed by newlyweds Raffy Tima and Mariz Umali.

The marriage is grounded on friendship. They met while students at the University of the Philippines. Then one summer, Christian broke off with his girlfriend. He then informed Mareng Winnie that he is in love with her. For over three hours, the young lawyer presented his case and convinced the incredulous Mareng Winnie that they should be a couple.

 â€œIt was the first and only argument I’ve won in our marriage,” says Christian.   

 â€œWe flirt. We make time to be together. We go to Subic every weekend and play house. There we can go naked around the house, and that’s the best part,” Christian jokes. â€œAnd that is why we’ve been together for 18,866 days and counting.”

 Feel the love in this Valentine episode of Bawal ang Pasaway Kay Mareng Winnie, airing tonight at 10 on GMA News TV Channel 11.
