|Having completed all the legal requirements our wedding day (Tuesday) was on the wed at 08:00 with the High Court Judge. It seemed strange as soon as we were finished he was presiding over a murder trial. The whole wedding party was then going for a Breakfast at the restaurant and whilst we were there Her brother suggested we go down the coast to a Nipa Hut at Argao that he had there so having been persuaded we agreed to meet at my hotel and go down the coast for a BBQ and the start of a few days honeymoon.|
The convoy of vehicles set of and before long we had out first problem when the pick up that we were in had a puncture and no jack!!! Well by proping up the back of the truck landed me in problems with my wife. Then there was the rain storm that left us all soaked and on eof th e girls did not have a bra on so with the wet T – shirt I was caught looking so that was the second problem and I had only been married for a couple of hours. !!!!!
When we arrived at this romantic setting it was discovered that the mosquito nets had been left behind so after a quick discussion we decided to go back to Cebu. As there were only 2 rooms and no doors the girls changed first and the boys second so that anyone wanting to go swimming could do so. Of course my wife and I did so as it was the only way we could get any privacy away from over attentive relatives. A swim that was both memorable and amazing.
The BBQ was great and soon it was time to pack up and return to the hotel in Cebu.
My Problems were not over as on the way back it started to rain again and then we discovered that the road had been washed out and we had to wait for the waters to subside and by the time it was late so during the conversations as to what to do next I suggested the party members with children de dropped of first as the children were getting factious, and we could be dropped off when we were closest to the Hotel Magellan, we had not booked rooms not having expected to be back in Cebu so soon.
By now it was about 11pm and we were soaking wet so at the Magellan hotel reception found us twin room and would allow us to go up to our room shower and then register. Well the last problem was to take place as we showered when I was asked for a divorce – that came out of the blue – the quickest weeding and it was less than 12 hours old. Those that are close to me know what happened next but suffice it to say I was extremely distraught.
