LOOK: Young Couple Passed The Examination for Lawyers Together

This young couple passed the examination for lawyers together.

Taking and passing the Bar Examinations is like going to a battlefield. It is never easy. It’s like entering a needle’s eye. But all things are possible if we believed in ourselves, not to mention the people who believed in us.

Just last week, the results for Bar Exams came out. Out of 7,685 law graduates who took the examinations only 2, 103 (27.36%) passed. Such wonderful news for the longtime couple, Maree Bajamunde and Bernard Importante, who both passed the November 2019 Bar Examinations.

“Parang third milestone namin kasi sabay kami grumaduate sa legal management sa college. Tapos, sabay din kami grumaduate ng law school. Tapos, sabay pa kami nakapasa. Isa talaga siya sa inaantay namin, “ Maree said.

The couple are both graduates of BSBA major in Legal Management from Ateneo de Naga University. Both of them were really excited to find out the result of the nerve-wracking examination. Being a very supportive partner to Maree, Bernard searched for his girlfriend’s name first when the results came out.

“Nalaman ko na lang sa classmates and friends na kasama pala ako sa passers. And, syempre ‘nung naka-connect na ako, hinanap ko yung pangalan ni Maree and pangalan ko,” he mentioned during an interview.

They both supported each other before, during, and after the examinations. They had some challenges and misunderstandings like other ordinary couples but they always got each other back.

“Kasi pag-down ako, andyan siya mag-e-encourage. Pag-down naman siya, ako naman ang nangungulit. Pero may time na masyado na akong mareklamo, so naistorbo siya sa pag-aaral niya. Pero at least na-address namin mga earlier parts ng review. Nag-usap kami bago mag-start ang review na we will support kada isa, and open communication,” Maree said during the interview.

Law if not the hardest, is a major not for the weak. The couple helped and inspired each other to finish Law school.

“Kasi nakakaselos din. Law is a very jealous mistress talaga. Talagang mag-aagawan kayo. Nag-a-adjust ka sa law, tapos dala mo pa yung relasyon. So dapat matured enough kayong dalawa,” Maree added.
