Engineer Marries Tricycle Driver, Sweet Pre-Nup Photos Go Viral

Love wins!

Though we already live in modern times, there is still this perception in society that couples should match up according to their status, appearance, and other factors that would supposedly make them ideal for each other.

For example, good-looking people are expected to marry good-looking partners while people would judge a poor person for being a gold-digger if he/she marries a rich person, especially if the matter isn’t really good-looking in their eyes.

And when it comes to professions, society also have this perception that professionals and successful people should match up with each other.

Recently, a couple went viral after sharing their pre-nup photos because the bride is an engineer while her groom is a tricycle driver. Sharing their story on her Facebook page, The Budgetarian Bride, the bride admits that there were times when they get judged by others because of their respective professions, yet this difference had bothered them in the 14 years that they’ve been together.

Now that they are about to tie the knot, she even claims to be the lucky one in the relationship as opposed to people thinking that her tricycle driver groom is lucky to marry an engineer.

Maaring hindi ideal ang aming lovestory. Engineer ako, tricycle driver sya. Pero never naming pinag awayan yung mga propesyon namin. Pwedeng tumaas ang kilay ng iba pag nalaman nila kung ano trabaho niya, pero who cares mamsh? Hahaha,” she wrote.

Hindi lahat ng kailangan mo, iaasa mo sa magiging asawa mo. Pwede niyo pagtulungan kung anuman ang pangarap ng bawat isa sainyo. Pagkalipas ng labing apat na taon, ito na. Malapit na.

Netizens are divided over their love story, but most support their love.

Sobrang swerte ni boy kase nowadays bihira na ang mga ganyang babae 🥺 Lalo na sa panahon ngayon karamihan na ng tao bumabase na sa istado mo sa buhay 😔,” one netizen pointed out.

Modern world na tau, paubos na ung mga toxic mag isip ngaun. There will come a time na wala nang tataas ang kilay sa mga ganitong arrangement. Congrats! & Best wishes!” another chimed in.

It takes a special woman to see how big you are gonna be in the future. Di man lumaki ang assets mo sa hinaharap pero dun ka nya titignan kung gaano ka nag grow bilang tao,” another wrote.

Love wins, indeed!

Their love story was also shared by their photographer, Mr. CO Photography:

“Without the engineer’s hard hat and tricycle driver’s vest, pantay lang tayo.

Mula noon hanggang ngayon, sa lahat ng pagbagsak at pag angat ko sa buhay, naniwala ka saakin at sa kakayahan ko. Hindi ka sumuko. Hindi tayo sumuko. Alam lahat ng kaibigan ko kung gaano ako kaswerteng ikaw ang ka “me and my jowa ko”

Wala tayong dapat patunayan sa ibang tao. Gusto ko lang ipagmalaki kung gaano tayo napatatag ng labing apat na taon.

Mahal kita lam.

From soon to be MRS. NOLASCO”

Congratulations to you both!
