Nothing but true love and genuine happiness are painted in these photos of Danny and Lorna Cortezano. The husband and wife hustle together while not neglecting quality couple time. They adore each other and put their love on display, not paying attention to the judging stares locked on their 34-year age gap. And if only the public would look past the numbers, then, they’d realize that what Danny and Lorna share is true and unconditional, as told in the Maalaala Mo Kaya “Grow Old with You” episode.
Danny and Lorna first met in an unconventional way. They were at a concert and Lorna was looking for someone selling cell phone load who happened to be Danny. A friendship was born that night until Danny and Lorna got closer when they became part of the same charity organization.
It was Lorna who encouraged Danny to continue his schooling and, later, find a stable job. Little by little, they were starting to get comfortable and caring towards each other, stirring rumours within the organization. Wishing to put the malicious remarks to a halt, Danny intentionally distanced himself from Lorna and courted a girl his age. But his relationship did not last long as the girl would never stop feeling jealous of Danny’s constant stories about Lorna.
Until, Danny and Lorna were unable to hold back their feelings. And even if Lorna was reluctant at first, she eventually gave in to her true emotions. Their love led them at the altar despite other people’s disapproval especially that of their respective families’. Apart from the public’s judgment, financial struggle added up to their problems. With love and faith, nonetheless, Danny and Lorna managed to fight for their love and beat all odds.
Danny and Lorna’s characters were portrayed by Markus Patterson and veteran actress Teresa Loyzaga.
