- At the age of 67, Delfa married Dodot who’s 57 years old
- Delfa said she hasn’t been in a relationship because she turned down her suitors
- Dodot admitted he was ‘pihikan’ with women when he was still young and wasn’t able to marry
A 67-year-old woman who has never been in a relationship finally marries — this after finding assurance in a man who’s 10 years her junior.
In an impressive twist of fate, Delfa reportedly found herself being married despite her age. At 67, she admitted she has already lost hope over falling in love and has settled to being alone.
She shared with Kapuso Mo, Jessica Soho how she proved that it’s never too late to find love.
Delfa recalled how she once had a suitor whom she turned down until she found herself alone.
“May nanligaw sa akin noon. Gusto niya nga raw akong pakasalan. Sabi ko, ‘Kung nagmamadali ka, maghanap ka ng ibang babae.’ Ayun, hanggang sa tumanda ako nang hindi nagkakaasawa,” she said.
Delfa added that her father often told her his regret of not having grandchildren. But she would always be proud that she was able to take care of her parents.
She was already contented with her life until somepne came into her life. Delfa said, “Nu’ng panahong iyon, kuntento na talaga ako. Hanggang may nagsabi sa akin na ‘Uy, Delfa, meron daw gustong bumisita sa’yo.’ May mga nagsasabi na hindi raw ba kami nahiya, kung kailan may edad na kami saka nagliligawan.”
Meanwhile, Dodot is a 57-year- old man who admitted he was very “pihikan” when it came to women. When he found Delfa, he found himself feeling young again. Smitten, Dodot pursued Delfa and finally decided to get married after months of courtship.
He said, “May mga naging kasintahan ako pero sadya akong pihikan. Pero nagbago ‘yun nang makilala ko si Delfa. Parang bumalik ‘yung pagkabinata ko. Nagkagusto ako sa kanya. At kahit anong gawin ko, siya ang pumapasok sa isip ko. May mga nanunukso na kung kailan daw matanda na kami saka kami nagliligawan.”
Truly, Delfa and Dodot’s love story brings inspiration to not give up on love despite age and circumstances.
