VIRAL: Boyfriend shares story on why he decided to pay for girlfriend’s studies

Netizens praised a man who sacrificed a lot in the name of love.

Through a Facebook post, Ador Adrian Gabrieles shared that he is elated that his girlfriend Aira Arcamo is one step closer to her dreams. That is to earn a college diploma.

Gabrieles is a huge part of this milestone in his girlfriend’s life because he helped her through college.

While his girlfriend was studying, he was working as a bagger at a local grocery store.

Out of his perseverance to help her financially, he tried to train himself to speak English fluently, which eventually landed him a job at a call center company.

With his income, he allocated a percentage of it to pay for Aira’s tuition fees.

He also said that there were a lot of naysayers who said that he should not pay for Aira’s education.

“Maraming nanghusga. Maraming nagsasabi na tanga daw ako, na kapag grumaduate daw si Aira, maiiwan ako. Na kapag may nahanap daw sya na lalaking mas maganda ang trabaho sa akin, ay magiging mag-isa na lang ako,” he said.

But Ador said he listened to his heart, and he also wanted to prove to Aira’s parents how serious he is in giving her a bright future.

“Tuwing tinatanong nila ako kung anong dahilan bakit ko sinusuportahan ang girlfriend ko, eto lang ang palaging sinasagot ko: ‘May kakayanan ang magulang ni Aira na paaralin sya. Engineer ang papa nya at Teacher ang mama nya.’

“Gusto kong makita nila kung gaano ko kamahal ang girlfriend ko. Na kahit ganito lang ako, ay kaya kong maging isang mabuting partner sa anak nila.

“Nais kong magkaroon ng magandang imahe ng isang mapagmahal na nobyo, may pangarap na asawa, at huwarang ama sa mga magiging anak namin sa mga mata nila,” he said.

And when Aira had her graduation photoshoot, she invited Ador to pose in the photo with her.

Netizens flooded the comments section with praises.

As of press time, Ador’s post has garnered over 62,000 reactions and 36,000 likes on Facebook.
