Love before politics for Bam Aquino

MANILA, Philippines - Love before politics. President Aquino's younger cousin, Benigno Paulo "Bam" Aquino IV, is getting married ahead of the country's most eligible bachelor next month, a few weeks before the Ninoy Aquino look-alike files his certificate of candidacy for the next senatorial elections.

Bam Aquino and his girlfriend of six years, Timi Gomez, will tie the knot in a quiet, exclusive-for-family affair on September 15 in Tagaytay.

He's 35; she's 28. He is from Ateneo; she from La Salle. He is from Tarlac; she is from Makati.

Aquino and Gomez met at the National Youth Commission six years ago.

The President is invited and is expected to attend, of course; but no, he is not one of the wedding sponsors.

The President's sister, Aurora Corazon " Pinky " Aquino Abellada, second among the five Aquino siblings, will stand as sponsor, along with cousins Danny Lichauco and Rafael Lopa, former President Corazon Aquino's favorite nephew.

Invited guests will come strictly from the Aquino and Gomez clans. The wedding, let it be known, according to the couple, is a celebration of love and family values, not of politics.

His best men are his classmates from Ateneo High School. Her five maids of honor are her close friends, among them the daughter of a high-profile beauty expert, and colleagues at her office at Unilever, maker of home and beauty products.

The wedding party will be held one week later, on September 22. In between, the couple will spend some private moments in Palawan.

The groom's father, Paul Aquino, the man who took charge of the ambitious President Corazon Aquino for President Movement in 1985, is expected to subsequently help prep the young Aquino for next year's political battle.
