My Wedding Message:
First of all I would like to thank the newly wed couples for inviting me, especially Nette who personally “served” me with the invitation to be a part of this once in a lifetime gathering. Well, term “served” in law means being furnished with summons, subpoena or a copy of judgment, final orders, pleadings, motions and other papers. I am glad what was served on me was an invitation in this Court of Love and not in the Court of Law. However, in a few years time, our couples here with be a formidable duo of lawyers. So brace yourselves then.
What can I say? Nette is a classmate of mine in several law school subjects. Among in the last semester were Corporation Law, Succession and Legal Forms. From the outset, Nette appears to be what she really is: a career woman who already achieved a lot in her 20’s. What she had exhibited so far is maturity in handling both life’s awesomeness and difficulties. While she struggled so hard in making sure that she gets things done with outstanding results, she still made sure that her off-school life is never compromised. That is why we are all here, to witness this milestone.
I just knew Nette for a while, but in a few chances of talking with her, I knew there’s a lot more with her than meets the eye or what soothes the ears.
To Nette: just remember what I told you. No matter how good you are, a relationship is taken care of by the man. Of course you have to talk and resolve things together. But “[i]n case of disagreement, the husband’s decision shall prevail, subject to recourse to the court by the wife for proper remedy, xxx”. Of course, you already know that in the Family Code, right?
I never had the chance to personally meet and talk with Michael but I know he’s a great guy. Only a man of dignity and intellect could surely make one Jeanette fall for him so madly and deeply in love. So to Michael: take care of your wife, in the same way Jesus Christ took care of His church.
To Michael and Nette, all the best in your married life. God bless the both of you.
