Lucy Torres looks back on Richard Gomez’s proposal back in 1998


To mark their 23 years as a married couple, Lucy Torres looked back on their Ormoc trip back in 1998 when her then-boyfriend, Richard Gomez, asked for her hand in marriage.  

On Instagram, the Leyte Rep. shared a photo from their trip “that one night in December.” 

“It was during this trip you made to Ormoc City that you proposed to me. 4 months later, on April 28, 1998, I walked down the aisle of Sts. Peter & Paul Parish Church into your arms and into your life as your wife,” she wrote.

Lucy added: “My dearest @richardgomezinstagram, you are my safe place, my courage, my fun and adventure. And the more I know you, the more I love you.” 

Currently, Richard is the mayor of his wife’s hometown.

Meanwhile, their only child Juliana also took to Instagram to mark her parents’ milestone.  

“23 years of the sweetest love I’ve ever known,” she wrote.
