The first year

Rodliz’s Nest
Yobib and I were already living together in an apartment in manila before our wedding but still there were a lot of adjustments, bumps and rough paths we had gone through for the first year of our married life. Yobib’s dad and my mother were confined to a hospital a month after our wedding. I was 7 months pregnant with yena at that time. There were lots of problems on the first 30 days, in terms of finances. But we made it through.

We had the worst fight on our first Christmas as husband and wife. I was 8 months pregnant when I ran away from their home and spent Christmas alone and crying. It wasn’t nice remembering that but now I smiled recalling how much of a fool I was. I don’t talk when angry while he talks a lot when mad. After few months of adjustments, we learned to communicate a lot. When Yena was born on January everything just fell into right places. We fight a little, laugh and cried with our foolishness and strive hard to be a blessing to each other.

8 months after the wedding, we have a 6 months old Yena :)

And just one thing, from the day we became a couple, husband gave the golden rule and that is to attend the mass and hear the word of God every sunday. He doesn't look religious i know, but he is really prayerful! It would be a hard life without God at the center of our lives, and I know and we try hard to make God the center of our union and our family..

Mare, lagi kang nag ra run away ha..mukhang bihasa ka ng lumayas, dala mo ba ang mga balutan mo kapag umaalis ka?

Katuwa ka naman..mula ng makilala kita, ilang beses ka ng nag walk out kay Yobib? panay namana ng sundo sau..Hahahaha.. Kaswerte mong nilalang, sensitive ka siguro masyado, lucky ka at si Pareng Yobib ko eh super inlove sau.. Kaya hinahayaan ka lang.

Newly weds pa kau Mare, you will go through a lot more years of trials, and with strong LOVE, respect and good communcation, and guidance from Him, you will make it to the end. Just hang on..Marriage is not always heaven and you already knew.. Love u, muah!

Hello Niko, naku yang talk while angry many times I do that too pero you know what at the end of the day kung magkatabi na kami sa kama I really do say sorry to my husbandry. Kawawa din naman kasi eh kung iisipin ko parang I contributed to the mess din naman hehe.
I agree with you maraming bumps along the path, but thankfully we all get through from those bumps!! Untog here and there and drama hehe!
I like your story thanks for sharing. happy weekdays!
