TABUK CITY, Kalinga – In Barangay Tuga, a mass Pre-Marriage Orientation and Counseling (PMOC) was started today for nine would-be couples.

According to John Leyaley of the City Population and Development Office (CPopDev), the PMOC prepares would-be couples for the most important decision they will ever make by equipping them with skills that will help them have a happy marriage.

According to him, the PMOC, which is now held in the barangays, is a gathering of different speakers from various city government departments.

Pastor Leonardo Tayaban of the City Barangay Affairs and Community Affairs Office (CBACRO) offered a spiritual strengthening session to the attendees, while Melody Dulawen of the City Social Welfare and Development Office (CSWDO) lectured on marriage and relationships.

CPoPDev staff Debie Jane Dawayan, Elma Dumatog and Alfa June Gabel also gave talks on responsible parenting, fertility awareness and family planning, and maternal, neonatal, and childcare issues, while City Civil Registrar Lourdes Bayangan and Shirley Lipato led a talk on marriage license requirements and processes.

Attendees at the PMOC, according to City Population and Development Officer Jonalyn Kiser, should take each session seriously in order to improve their relationship and develop the necessary skills to cope with the tough and demanding tasks that come with raising a family.

Other barangays in the city will also be subjected to the PMOC.   By Darwin S. Serion
