Copy of Wedding Dance by Amador Daguio
Transcript of Copy of Wedding Dance by Amador Daguio
Awiyao and Lumnay were husband and wife for seven years, but the husband has to marry another woman, Madulimay, because Lumnay was not able to give him a child.
Awiyao went back home to see Lumnay because he didn't find her among the dancers at his wedding. He wanted Lumnay to dance at his wedding for the last time but she cannot. On the night of the wedding, they talk about how Lumnay did her best to have a child.
Lumnay wanted to protest against the written rule that a man can marry another woman, so Lumnay went to the wedding dance. But while seeing her husband married to another woman, she could not take it anymore and just went to the mountain to clear away the beans she had thought about.
