Kathryn and Daniel almost broke up. Twice.

Now on their eighth year together, Kathryn Bernardo and Daniel Padilla have set a standard for maintaining a healthy and long lasting relationship.

But contrary to what we see, KathNiel’s relationship wasn't always a bed of roses. In an interview with Toni and Alex Gonzaga for “I Feel U” last Sunday, the couple recalled that they also experienced the so-called “three-year itch” and “seven-year itch.”

“Of course, just like any other relationships, dumaan kami sa point [na parang gusto na naming sumuko]. Hindi ko alam, third year or fourth year ‘yung una, tapos ‘yung seventh year, ‘yung seven-year itch. Ibang issue naman ‘yun,” Kathryn said.

“Parang dadating ‘yun sa relationship. Mag-eight years na kami, tapos may mga dadating na problema talaga na magte-test sa inyong dalawa,” she added.

 

Daniel recalled the many times they fought but never gave up. He also likened their relationship to a plant that needed to be nurtured over time.

“Marami na kaming away ni Kathryn na talagang away din talaga. Sa parte ko, meron na akong pagkakataon ko, nang tumalikod at umalis. Pero tatalikod man ako, after five minutes, babalik din ako,” he said.

He continued, “Ang love kasi sa akin, kailangan ko siyang alagaan. You have to let it grow. Para siyang halaman, kailangan mo siyang mahalin. Hindi ko siya kayang talikuran at baka wala na akong makuhang pag-ibig na ganito ulit.”

 

Kathryn and Daniel said respect is the true secret to a strong relationship.

“Huwag mainitin ang ulo kasi hindi madadaan ang mga usapan sa galit. Laging dapat klaro ka, hindi pwedeng ang taas mo agad lagi. ‘Yun ang nakita kong problema ko noon kapag nag-aaway kami ni Kathryn. Kapag mas malakas ang boses ko, baka mas manalo ako. Parang may ganoon, na para sa akin ngayon, na-realize ko na mali pala ‘yung ganun. Hindi dapat ganoon,” Daniel said.

“Sa akin naman, ‘yung respeto. Sobra ‘yun. Natetest ‘yan kapag galit tayo. Pwede kang magsalita ng kung anu-ano na mao-offend mo yung partner mo, or alam mo na mapipikon siya. So ang laking bagay na nirerespeto niyo ang isa’t isa,” Kathryn enthused.
