After courting each other for more than a year, Sione and Ruth said their “I do’s” at the Leloto Catholic Church Leauva’a on Saturday.

Father Iosefo Mulipola conducted the service where he reminded the new couple that love is the foundation of marriage.

“Love is patient, love is kind, it always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres, love never fails,” he recited the words from the scriptures. 

“The journey will not be an easy one. You will go through ups and downs on the way but always remember the vows you took in front of your families and friends and most especially in front of God.

“You promised each other that through thick or thin, the good time and the bad, in sickness or in health you will love each other for the rest of your lives.”
