They are indeed #RelationshipGoals!
Cheska Garcia and Doug Kramer have been in a relationship for almost 13 years already: Five years as boyfriend and girlfriend and eight years as husband and wife.
With their happy and "going strong" marriage, Cheska revealed how they keep the love alive.
"Our accountability’s with the Lord. We take what the Bible says seriously in our relationship. Like for me, ‘Wives submit to your husbands.’ ‘Husbands,’ for Doug, ‘love your wife as Christ loved his Church," Cheska said in an interview with PUSH.
The actress-host added, "If it’s between the two of you, guys, you have your pride, you have your flaws, right? But then when you put Christ in the center, it’s like you have a mediator who tells you this is what’s right, this is what’s proper."
Moreover, the 36-year-old actress shared some advice on how to find your "The One."
“I guess when you take your time and be friends first because when Doug and I met, although we were both attracted to each other, we were really friends. Meaning, when I say friends, we never hugged, kissed, held hands," Cheska shared.
Cheska couldn't have stressed enough how important friendship as foundation is.
"We really went through the courtship so when we finally got together, we were able to look beyond just being physically attracted because we really got to see the heart of the person, we were able to stop and not let physical attraction get in the way of really getting to know the person so that’s why maybe it has remained solid," she related.
That's the same advice she gives her siblings.
“We remind them that when you go for a boy or for a girl, don’t go ahead of your emotions," she said. "Get to know them. Really know their character and then you’ll see, you’ll know if you really like that person because kami, we were able to later on figure out na, ‘I really like this person because I am not anymore looking at his handsome face but I see the goodness of his heart.'"
Cheska and Doug got married October 9 of 2008. They now have three children: Kendra, Scarlet, and Gavin. They are populary known as Team Kramer.
