Fernandino Couples Wed On Valentine’s Day [ Tuesday, 17th of February 2015 | 2 years ago ]


A mass wedding was held last February 14 in celebration of Valentine’s Day and the last installment for the celebration of Kaganapan 2015, the 14th celebration of the cityhood of San Fernando.

Led by City Mayor Edwin D. Santiago, City Civil Registry Officer Rimando Umali, Kaganapan 2015 Chairperson Virgilio Cortez and Co-Chairperson of Kasalang Balen Engr. Jose Diaz, the mass wedding covered a total of 89 couples all from the 35 barangays of the city.

“Our goal in doing this Kasalang Balen is to give chance to those who wants to get married but cannot afford the expenses. Also, we want to lessen the couples who engage into live-in lifestyle,” said Engr. Diaz.

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.
