Groom Who’s Just Half the Size of His Bride Makes Netizens Believe in True Love Again

A groom who is just half the size of his bride recently went viral as he made netizens believe in true love again.

Standing just 3 ft tall, Roque Tapales is not your typical groom, but he proved that love conquers all as he married Mary Joy Arroyo at their hometown in Zamboanga City, southern Philippines.

And while the striking height difference is so obvious between the two, it was also quite clear that they are so much in love with each other! In this world where so many couples easily fall out of love, it is refreshing for netizens to see two people who are so obviously in love, no matter the circumstances they are in.

It turned out that Roque works as elevator operator at the mall where he met Mary Joy. Falling in love with this beautiful lady, Roque tried his chances and proved how much he loved her. Thankfully, Mary Joy looked beyond Roque’s appearance, seeing him for the man he truly is.

He might be small in stature and has a lot of congenital issues, yet Roque has a big heart that’s so full of love for Mary Joy.

And they did not let their physical differences get in the way of their love. Netizens were impressed with their love story – and the mayor who solemnized their wedding was also so amazed that she posted their photos on her social media account.
