Dear Group,

What is Pamamanhikan?

In Filipino culture, lovers would go through a lot of stages before actually calling it Official. There's the panliligaw or courtship stage, the harana or serenading, the old-fashioned love letters, and many other things that will make you feel all gooey and helplessly in love. Then after all these, there's "Pamamanhikan."

Once a couple decides to tie the knot, traditionally, pamanhikan is done by the man and his family to formally ask the woman's family for her hand in marriage. Old-fashioned as it is, pamamanhikan is a tradition that helps bring the couple's families closer, which is especially important in a very family-oriented society like the Philippines.

If you're marrying a Filipino woman and thinking of a way to bring her a surge of butterflies and at the same time win her family over, show your sincerity by doing it the old-fashioned way!

In our activity, we will talk about the things that usually happen during the pamamanhikan.
