This woman’s overflowing love for her deceased husband extends beyond the grave. Although their love story had a tragic ending, the widow chose to make her husband’s funeral memorable by wearing a wedding dress that matches her deceased husband’s “barong.”
Other people might interpret it as poor taste in a attire. But for widowed Margarita Santos-Dela Rosa, her choice of wearing a wedding dress is a symbol of her overflowing love and loyalty to her deceased husband.
Speaking in an interview with TLC, the mourning wife claimed that she intentionally wore her old wedding gown to her husband’s funeral to honor her departed partner:
“During the wake, wala ako ginawa kung hindi umiyak lang ng umiyak. Nilabas ko wedding gown ko, sabi ko, ‘Isusuot ko rin ‘to para terno pa rin kami.'”
During the video that aired on “ASAP” last February 18, Margarita recalled how their love story began. She already had a string of failed lovers at twenty-four, and she was slowly losing hope in finding true love. She was about to abandon all hope for romance when she met her husband.
In the beginning of their relationship, Margarita was already aware of her husband’s complicated medical condition brought about by a severe case of asthma. In spite of this, they were married a year in 1994, a year after exclusively dating one another:
“More than a year na kaming mag-boyfriend-girlfriend, nagkaroon pala siya ng partial blindness dahil… napakahirap pala ng sakit na asthma.”
For many years throughout their marriage, Margarita took care of her ailing husband. However, his health continuously declined until his body finally gave up. At the time of his death, the two were inseparable and Margarita stayed at her husband’s bed until he finally drew his last breath.
Although he’s already dead, Margarita still wants to express her undying love for her soulmate. After it all, Margarita claimed that love is all about sacrifices:
“Ang pag-ibig para sa’kin ay pagbibigay ng sarili mo sa taong minamahal mo. Buong puso, lahat ng oras, ibibigay mo.”
