Ilocos Norte Governor Matthew Marcos Manotoc will forever stan the love story of his grandparents, former president Ferdinand Marcos Sr. and ex-first lady Imelda Marcos.
The young Ilocano politiko recalled the whirlwind romance of his grandparents as the family remembered the family patriarch and matriarch’s wedding anniversary on Saturday, May 1.
“The age gap has not been a barrier for the shortest engagement I have ever known in my entire life. Eleven days, love really does amazing things. Happy Anniversary,” Manotoc said in his Instagram post dedicated to his grandparents.
Ferdinand had married Imelda after an 11-day courtship. They have four children: Imee Marcos, Manotoc’s mother; Ferdinand “Bongbong” Marcos Jr; Irene Marcos-Araneta; and Aimee Marcos, the couple’s adopted daughter.
