I, JESSIE SALVADOR, do solemnly swear, that I’ll maintain allegiance to my wife Rhea; I will support our union, and obey the laws as well as the legal orders of the duly constituted family that we have; I will do no falsehood, nor consent to the doing of any in our relationship. I will not wittingly or willingly court or flirt with any other woman but her and her alone, nor give way or chance to consent to the same; I will defray no woman of affection or malice, and will conduct myself with overwhelming extra-ordinary diligence of a good father of a family, as well to my spouse Rhea as to my children; and I impose upon myself these voluntary obligations without any mental reservation or purpose of evasion. So help me God.

More than a number, ten years is a testimony of friendship, love and family. It is a short period compared to eternity. But applying the concepts continuum mechanics for engineers, we know that the microscopic analysis of scalars, forces and tensors though constitutive equations fill out the gaps of atomic and sub-atomic behavior to the knowledge and application of classical physics. Sounds like a deep-earthed pronouncement. For someone who chose to be a scientist, engineer and a (future) lawyer, nothing is more constitutive but the anatomy of LOVE. Just like music regarded as the language of heart, love is all that stands with the word “forever”.
Today I greet my friend, who happens to be my confidante, partner, and wife, who became a “mistress” to my study of law. [It is not to be taken in the negative but in its purest sense]. Truth is that there can never be a substitute to her. Time or other objects may intervene, but judgment on the merits had already been rendered from the day I chose to be with her.
Happy 10th year anniversary!
May God continue give us more time to live and enjoy the blessings of being with each other, for the fulfillment of His greater glory.
