Materena and Pito have lived together for many years and have three children but they are not married. It really didn't seem to matter too much to Materena. She seemed happy the way things were going.
One night Pito arrived home after having too much to drink. He asked Materena to marry him. She really didn't give it too much thought because she knew he had too much to drink and probably wouldn't remember what he said the next morning.
Guess what? The next morning Pito did not mention anything about the proposal!
Materena, who is sure that a wedding will ever never occur, decided to prepare just in case. She checked on the prices of a wedding cake, a wedding dress and transportation. Materena started to get discouraged because Pito never said he loved her.
What happens to Materena and "her man"? Do they finally get married?
