The love story of Mary Rose Vargas and Danilo Nolasco, Jr. starts as many do—they were childhood sweethearts who became a couple in high school.
“Talagang disidido rin ako na siya lang ‘yong liligawan ko,” says Danilo. “Kung baga, sabi nga nila, magtiyaga.”
He continued to support her as she pursued college, even as he wasn’t able to do so. “Noong naging successful siya, okay sa akin.”
“Actually, high school graduate siya,” Mary Rose shares. “Hindi siya nag-aral ng college, so wala rin kaming chance na naging magkaklase kami.
“Minahal ko rin siya bilang siya, e. Hindi ko nakita na hindrance sa amin na tricycle driver siya, as long as responsible siya.” What is important to her is the reason why he does what he does. “Nakikita ko naman kung bakit siya nagtratrabaho—hindi para sa sarili niya. Para sa pamilya niya, so that itself masasabi ko na mabuti siyang tao."
