'PBB' ex-housemate Hasna Cabral says ex-husband married her out of pity for being a single mom

In time for International Women’s Month, “Pinoy Big Brother: Otso” ex-housemate Hasna Cabral candidly spoke about her journey as a single mom of two, which included hitting rock bottom because of a failed marriage.

In an interview with Toni Gonzaga on March 15, Hasna shared the challenges that she faced as a single mother of two children with autism, namely Bash and Baste. 

Coming out of failed relationships with the fathers of her kids, Hasna thought she found her “knight in shining armor” in her third boyfriend who immediately asked her hand in marriage.

“Single mom of two kids na ako eh, kumbaga sawa na rin ako sa relationship. Eh, ang alok sa akin, marriage. Matagal kong pinangarap ‘to,” she explained.

According to Hasna, she has always dreamed of being a full-time mom and a loving wife. But what she initially thought as an answered prayer turned out to be another heartbreaking chapter of her life.

“Okay siya nung una kasi nag-live in muna kami bago kami ikasal. Tapos after nun, siguro mga 10 months after namin ikasal, nagpapaalam na siya. On my birthday, birthday ko mismo, sabi niya, hindi na daw niya kaya,” she revealed.

She continued, “Kasi sabi niya, hindi daw niya talaga kami mahal pala. ‘Yung realization niya after naming ikasal is awa lang pala ‘yung naramdaman niya sa amin. Kawawa lang kasi kaming mag-iina, tapos nabulag lang siya sa fact na nakaka-inspire ako as a woman, pero hindi, kawawa lang pala.”

Looking back at that moment, Hasna has tried putting herself in her ex-husband’s shoes: “Naiintindihan ko na kasi ang hirap naman talaga. Kasi ako mismo na nanay nila nahihirapan eh, what more ‘yung hindi mo na anak sasaluhin mo pa at ikaw ‘yung lahat gagawa para sa kanila?”

Nonetheless, her husband's choice to leave still broke her and made her think that she and her children are nothing but “trash.”

“Sobrang sakit kasi akala ko mahal kami. Akala ko sasaluhin kami. ‘Yun pala awa lang. That time, ang tingin ko sa sarili ko, basura. Kami ng mga anak ko,” she said.

“Nagmamakaawa talaga ako, ‘yun ‘yung pinakamababa ko,” she recalled the exact moment she “hit rock bottom.”

“Hawak ako sa binti, ganung level. ‘Huwag mo ‘kong iwan, huwag mo kaming iwan ng mga anak ko, parang awa mo na.’ From being a banker, performer ako sa opisina, bumaba ako ng ganung kababa. Hindi ko pa rin siya napigilan. Umalis pa rin siya,” she detailed.
