Meant to Be: Verity and Andrea on Love and Finding the Right One

Finding someone who’d give the same love that you give is the best feeling and Verity and Andrea found that in each other. Here’s their story.

Indeed, God answers prayers. He goes so far beyond anything we ever believed could happen.

Verity, being the sweet and loving person that she is, finds joy in taking care of everyone around her. She definitely has always been surrounded with love—contentment, even—but just like all of us, she was waiting for someone that will shower her back with all the love and attention that she deserves.

When she met Andrea, she instantly felt that he was a breath of fresh air. She never thought that she would find everything that she loved in one person. Throughout all the years that they were together, he worked hard to make her feel how amazing it is to be taken care of, prioritized, and most especially, to finally be the one at the receiving end of love.

Verity and Andrea: Their First Meeting

Unlike most of us who remember the first date, Andrea lucidly remembers the first time he saw Verity’s picture. He was struck by her smile, and he really wanted to get to know her more. Their first meeting was obviously a success and even while they were already married, he still treats her as a rare diamond that is exceedingly precious and of great value.

To this day, Verity is certain that Andrea is the answer to all her silent and tearful prayers that she offered in all the churches she was able to visit all over the world. (We are not crying, you are!)

When God decides to bless you, He will cause situations to come together in your favor no matter what.

Bad Luck or Blessing?

We found out that several years ago, a fortune teller in Bali told Verity that she was going to get married TWICE.

She was terrified.

Celebrating a Double Wedding

Due to the pandemic—something they were ironically grateful for—the fortune teller’s prediction made perfect sense. The couple was supposed to have their wedding in Boracay last March 2020, but they had to postpone the wedding due to the restrictions that were imposed.

Andrea was able to arrive in the Philippines, just in time for the wedding, but unfortunately, Verity—who was based in Qatar at the time—was not able to leave. He then decided to go back to Italy to wait out the pandemic for a bit.

Well, we all know how the pandemic went to be. That was why the couple decided to have their FIRST wedding done in Italy in the year 2021. But after a year, they went back to the beautiful paradise of Boracay (which happens to be where they had their first vacation together) to say their “I do’s” the SECOND time around.

(I do not know about you, but I am definitely having goosebumps!)

Truly Meant to Be

Andrea and Verity are the perfect couple to remind us that little by little, day by day, what is meant for you will always find its way.

I hope this serves as a gentle reminder to all couples out there to be attentive to all the little and big happenings that, when you think about it, would all show how you and your significant other were meant to be—no matter what life throws at you.
