Kapamilya actress Maricar Reyes shared one of the biggest fights she had with husband Richard Poon, back when they were still dating.
In a story by PEP published yesterday July 19, Maricar said, “It was about shoes.” She did not go much into the details of the fight, but she said that it was a big deal, to the point that she contemplated if the crooner really is the man she would like to spend the rest of her life with.
She shared that she grew up in a family with whom she was used to holding in her emotions to avoid confrontations; while Richard was always very direct and headstrong. Richard addressed the “shoes” issue with her in a way that is very opposite to who she is—calm and kind.
But Maricar didn’t let the initial surge of feelings get her. Instead, she pondered and tried to understand where Richard was coming from. “Pero kasi, if you go beyond your initial emotion, nung pinag-isipan ko in whole kung sino siya, mas nagustuhan ko. Grabe kasi talaga 'yung values na dinadala niya sa life ko na truth. He taught me how to confront. Mas naging mabigat kaysa sa nararamdaman ko,” she said.
“Don’t be afraid to fight,” the couple advised those who are in a relationship.
“Just because nag-aaway kayo, hindi siya ibig sabihin na nag-fail ka. Opportunity siya para mas lumalim ang relationship niyo,” Maricar explained.
They believe that fights test a relationship, and reveal things a couple must know about each other. Ultimately, the fights that they had when they were still in the dating phase helped them realize that they are right for each other.
The power couple recently released their book called "10 Things We Fight About."
