For his part, Mayor Edwin Santiago in his opening remarks said that getting married is like building an institution wherein this is the smallest unit of the government and that the society is widely depending on every Filipino family.
As the highlight of Kasalang Balen, Mayor Santiago stressed that marriage in the Philippines is a pillar, a building ground of the society that is why they support them by doing these kinds of activities.
“Ang pag-aasawa ay hindi biro. Nagtatayo ka ng isang institusyon, nagpupundar tayo ng isang pamilya na inaasahan ng lahat ng Pilipino.Ito pala ay isang responsibilidad na aakuin natin sa ating mga magulang,” Mayor Santiago added.
The city also provided the couples’ wedding rings and food packages as well.
Kasalang Balen is the capping celebration of Kaganapan 2015, the celebration of the 14th Cityhood Anniversary of San Fernando.
