Seventy-eight unwed couples tie the knot on a mass wedding sponsored by the La Carlota City government  on February 13 at the City Gymnasium. The event was made possible through the partnership of the City Government thru the Office of the Civil Registrar and the Philippine Statistics Authority (PSA). “Marriage is for love. Love your partner, husband and wife. Love is a success of the wedding,” said Mayor Jacky Jalandoni who served as the solemnizing officer. Engr. Fred S. Sollesta, Regional Director of PSA-Region VI,  emphasized the importance of marriage in a family. He added that the civil wedding is an opportunity for couples to register their marriage and eventually legitimize their children. SP member Amalia Aguirre, Chairman of the Committee on Women, Social Welfare and Family Relations, reminded the couples to remain faithful to their respective partners.
