LAOAG CITY - Love knows no size.

This was proven by a couple with dwarfism in Laoag City who got married last Saturday, June 8.

Norvie Bartolome who stands 3-foot-4, and Vangie Ponion, who's 3-feet tall, proved that their love can never be measured.

“Wala sa height, basta magmahalan kayo, 'yun ang importante,” Norvie said.

(It has nothing to do with height. What's important is that you love each other.)

“Kahit maliit kami, pinagtagpo kaming dalawa,” Vangie said.

(Even if we're small, we found a way to each other.)

Norvie and Vangie met at a sari-sari store and they both said it was love at first sight.

“Tumibok bigla ang puso ko (My heart suddenly felt love),” said Norvie.

Dianne Mateo, a friend of the couple, also testified to their love: “Pinagtagpo sila, walang pinipili (They were meant to be)."
