The forty-year age gap didn’t stop Lydia Montalbo and Ferdinand dela Cruz from saying their “I do’s.” Indeed, love knows no age limit for the couple who first met each other five years ago.

According to Ferdinand, their one-of-a-kind love story started when his uncle asked him to take care of Montalbo, who was already suffering vision problems due to cataract at that time.

“Ako’y kinuha po ng tiyuhin ko sa amin. Alagaan ko raw po ang kanyang biyenan. Hindi na kasi nakakaaninag ang kanyang mga mata dahil sa katarata sa edad na 73-anyos. Kaya kinailangan nito ng tagapag-alaga,” Montalbo told ABS-CBN News.

While dela Cruz initially felt pity for the old lady, he soon found himself falling in love with a woman old enough to be his mother.

"Ako po ay inilagaan nire, siya po ay naawa sa akin. Hindi na po ako hiniwalayan nire. Sabi daw niya ako ay pakikisamahan habang nabubuhay," Montalbo revealed.

Fortunately, their families saw more than the age difference and supported the odd couple’s relationship. Last May 11, the couple sealed the deal and got married in a mass wedding in their town Lobo, Batangas.

While many would question dela Cruz’ intention for marrying a woman more than twice his age, Montalbo believes that her husband truly loves him since he wouldn't getting anything financially from her.

“Wala naman po siyang makukuha sa akin, wala naman akong kayamanan, kanya po ay awa,” Montalbo said.

“Mahal na mahal ko po ang nanay habang ako ay nabubuhay,” dela Cruz reassured his wife.

The old lady is also open to the idea of deal Cruz getting married again should she pass away.
