In story by PUSH today, October 26, they were able to get Doug's reaction about what happened.
He said, "Take it as you go. You can’t please everybody. But you know what, we try and be a blessing to people so that’s the most important thing."
Meanwhile, as happy as they may look as a married couple, Chesca said that arguments also happen between them.
"We have arguments. Kung magkaibigan nga may arguments ano pa kaya mag-asawa? But when we apologize we mean it. Doug and I talk about issues that maybe I get sensitive over something or I address whatever he was telling me. We really tell whatever it is that we feel. And then after that when we finish apologizing to each other then we really reconcile and it’s not like going back to it," she shared.
Doug and Chesca were in a long-term relationship before they got married, and he said that it is good communication that helps them build their relationship until now.
“What’s the biggest difference for us, we’ve been together since 2003, married since 2008, and no matter what disagreements we have, literally at the end of the day, we make sure that we resolve it. We don’t ever want a gap, a day or two days that we don’t talk. Hindi uso sa amin 'yun. We resolve it. We apologize, whoever needs to apologize. That’s our family, you can see we spend a lot of time together," he said.
Meanwhile, Chesca admitted to having adjusted a lot since she got married and how different she looks at Doug now.
Chesca said, “I have such a strong personality naku. Pero you know what, I’ve learned that there’s really blessing in a marriage and 'yung mga immature ways, when you get married talagang you’re able to settle them. I look at my husband na kasi in a different way. He’s my partner, he’s my companion so for me it has really matured me in many, many ways."
