Maricar and Don tied the knot last December 2006. However, Don decided to end their marriage all of a sudden recently.
“Ako rin talaga nagulat. Ginulat niya ako,” Maricar says during a PEP (Philippine Entertainment Portal) interview. “Parang bigla na lang niya akong in-upper cut tapos knockout ako.”
Like any other couple, Maricar and Don had disagreements.
“Pero yung sa amin is really petty. Hindi nga kami nagsisigawan or whatsoever, e,” she says. “And for eleven years, we never really separated na like this. Never, never really happened. Eto talaga yung major at tumuluy-tuloy pa.”
As of now, the two only communicate through their lawyers.
Alone again, Maricar admits that she is having a hard time adjusting.
“It’s my first time to be doing everything on my own. You know, it’s eleven years na dependent ako sa kanya," she shares. “I sleep alone, I wake up alone. I come home to an empty house. I eat alone. I do things on my own now. Natuto na akong magsimba alone. Natuto akong manood ng movie alone."
For Maricar, being alone again is a process and she’s “learning to enjoy being alone.”
When asked if she still loves Don, she answers “Of course. Napaka-ipokrita ko naman kung sasabihin ko na wala na, hindi ko na siya mahal.” She adds, “Maganda naman yung itinamin niya, e… not until now.”
She admits that she is not yet ready to date saying, "gusto ko mawala muna yung pain, yung hurt na meron ako. And then, after that, I’m hoping that I’ll find happiness again someday.”
As of now, Maricar says, “Wala pa sa vocabulary ko ang happiness.”
