Bride marries PDL inside Baguio City Jail

Nothing can stop a couple in Baguio City from exchanging 'I dos,' not even jail bars.


This is the story of Butch and Marilyn, who tied the knot inside the Baguio City Jail Male Dormitory on January 18, 2024.


According to the Bureau of Jail Management and Penology Cordillera, the couple had been living together until Butch was arrested in September 2022 for a criminal case.

Their love and determination to spend the rest of their lives together, weighing heavier than their current situation, brought them to pursue marriage even while Butch is still in jail.


For five months, the couple, with the assistance of BJMP Cordillera and other agencies, complied and completed the needed documents for them to be able to marry.


On Thursday, the much-awaited special day for the couple happened inside the Baguio City Jail Male Dormitory with the ceremony being officiated by BJMP – Cordillera Regional Chaplain, Rev. Fr. JSinsp Jan Vincent Damian, and Rev. Fr. German Ledesma.


Having marked history as the first couple to wed at the city jail, Jail Warden, JSupt. April Rose Ayangwa, extended her best wishes to the newlywed couple and thanked the service providers who helped make the dream wedding of Marilyn and Butch come true.


Currently, Marilyn and Butch share an 11-month-old child.
