HOW LOVE WINS THIS VALENTINES DAY



I am not a romantic person... but I believe in love.  Especially love for my family. And everytime challenges come along the way -- I just have to believe -- and hope that LOVE wins.

For this article let's zero in on husband-wife relationship.  How does love actually win?


Yesterday, February 1, the first day of the love month -- I was invited to the Valentines media launch of Sm Supermalls.  The venue with all things romantic -- balloons, teddy bears, rose petals on the floor -- the event set the mood for what turned out to be - a LOVE day for me.






THE LOVE TALK SHOW


(L-R)  JASON MAGBANUA (Director), COUPLE IN THE #LoveSM VIDEO, MARIBEL DIONISIO (Love Expert), MR. JOYON SAN AGUSTION (Senior VP for Marketing, SM Supermalls)  and MS. GRACE MAGNO (VP for Advertising SM Superalls)
From the Q&A of the panelists -- I learned a lot about love and relationships:


>> On the video that Jason directed for SM - the bride is having doubts and having lots of questions in her mind, on the day of the wedding.  What can I say -- no one can ever really be sure if there's such a thing as FOREVER. But the decision to get married and be committed in the relationship is one big step to forever. Marriage, you just have to work hard for it to last. 




>>  On doubting:  Ms. Maribel mentioned a very important point, for marriage to last -- there should be an open and honest communication between parties. The relationship will not grow, probably get stagnant, if communication is absent

>> Ms. Grace shared one practical love advice. Instead of making tampo if your husband doesn't give you the right gift during occasions, fret not. Wives should find creative ways of giving hints (or if you want just say it out loud) what gift do you want from hubby. That would eliminate the stress on the side of the husband, and frustration on the wife's POV.

>> Make romantic memories together, even if you are married for years. Consider having weekly dates -- without the kids.  This fuels fire into the relationship.
