In the Philippines, my parents raised me Catholic and God-fearing.
As a teen-ager, my mom lectured me.
Mom: "You should be modest, no boyfriends until you finish college.
Its a shame when you got married with this tune:
" here comes the bride, three months inside".
Well, it really did work for me at least for the time being.
I did not have a boyfriend in high school.
I did not have a boyfriend in university.
I had one serious boyfriend when I stated my career and we all know how it ended.
When I turned 26, I moved to Canada.
When I turned 34, I got married.
My five year old son was my ring bearer.
My 8 month daughter was my flower girl.
My mom must be very proud of me!
