Romero weds 80 ‘live-in’ couples
The youngest groom was an 18 year-old who said he could no longer wait to bring his likewise young bride before the solemnizing officer. In the Philippines, with the consent of the parents the legal age of marriage is 18 year-old according to the Family Code of the Philippines. Dr. Ophelia Rivera, chief of the municipal health office here, appealed to the newly wed couples that to have a good health for the mother they should give a space of three years before they have another child. “It is their choice. Sa atin serbisyo lang. Nandito ang gusto nilang i-avail, i-avail nila”.
