Do we still have to report our marriage in the Philippine Embassy if we got married here in the US? 

You are supposed to, if you delay 1 year or more you have to provide an explanation why. In the greater scheme of things living here it does not matter.

Only if you want to, not required.  If you want to keep things up to date in the Philippines .. then yes complete ROM

 

Most obvious reason to complete ROM would be getting the Philippine passport in your married name.   If you have kids in your future you will want ROM completed before that, makes filing ROB go smoother.

Hello, my fiancé and I are looking into ROM now. Does ROB mean Report of Birth, like I have to declare to the Philippine government if and when I have children here in the US? Also, why is it relevant to update the Philippine passport with the married name, and what other purposes does ROM serve?

ROB is reporting your child's birth to the Philippine government so that they are recognized as Philippine citizens. The only good thing that ROM does for you is that you can get your passport in your married name that is it.

Makes life simpler to go by 1 name regardless of where you are, the other option is to carry supporting documents to describe the differences, totally your choice

Some don't bother with ROM, but if you have plans to stayed "connected" to the Philippines it is something you want to do ( and you must follow traditional naming format).   My wife did it to get her passport in her married name, and later to put land in her married name.  

 

And yes ROB is report of birth .. this is important for guaranteeing a child's dual citizenship.
