Robin Padilla reveals details about his pending Catholic wedding with Mariel Rodriguez


If there'rsquo;s one thing that Robin Padilla asked of his wife Mariel Rodriguez, it is to take good care of him for the first five years of their marriage before they think of having their own child. True enough, Mariel had the chance to spoil him during their recent trip to India. "Ginagawa lahat ni Mariel bilang isang housewife. Babangon sa umaga yun, gumagawa siya ng kape, gumagawa siya ng almusal, inaayos niya yung tubig na pampapaligo ko. Alam ko na bago sa kanya yun kasi minsan yung kape niya masyadong matamis. At 'lsquo;pag nakikita niya na medyo stressed na ako sa shooting [para sa movie namin] magpapatawa na yun. Pinipilit niya. Napaka-sweet niya, napaka-sexy niya," said the dashing action star during the press launch of StarStudio Plus: Idol, The Robin Padilla bookazine.

Robin further shared that he took the chance to show Mariel a lot of historical places in India and to teach her more about their culture there. "Pinakita ko sa kanya yung mga kaharian dun sa Maharatta. Bata pa kasi si Mariel e. Yung mundo niya konti pa lang ang nakikita niya. Parang mundo lang ata ng ABS-CBN ang nakita niya kaya nandun pa kami sa usapin na minsan para niya akong teacher. Minsan natutulog na nga yun e sa dami ng sinasabi ko. Nakikita ko na lang tulog na siya. Pero minsan pinipilit niya, minsan sinasampal niya yung sarili niya para lang magising siya. Good student naman siya," he beamed.

Now that they have the chance to get to know each other more, Robin revealed that he finds it normal for any couple to experience little misunderstandings and fits of jealousy. "Lalo na ako dahil selosong tao ako talaga! Lagi ko sinasabi sa kanya na kapag nagseselos ako ibig sabihihin niyan e namumukadkad pa ang pag-ibig. Yung mga misunderstandings e tao kami. Natural na natural lang yun lalo na siya kabata-bata tapos ako naman e 25 years old pa lang (laughs). Hindi nawawala yun. Pero ang maganda kay Mariel kasi ay tinitignan niya lagi yung pagka-senior ko. Lagi siya nagpapakumbaba. Siya yung lumalapit."

When asked how they plan to balance their married life and their respective showbiz careers, Robin stressed that he has nothing against Mariel going back to work. "Hindi ko kasi nagugustuhan yung sinasabi ng iba na mag-retire siya kasi kabata-bata pa niya. Hindi ko rin gusto yung salitang igi-give up niya [yung kanyang career]. Gusto ko siya ang mag-full blast. Kasama naman 'lsquo;yan sa mag-asawa yung lagi ko sa kanya ipinapakiusap na alagaan mo ako. Pero kung alagaan lang, kukuha na lang ako ng special nurse. Pero gusto ko ang asawa ko progressive na. Nasa 2010 na tayo, dapat women empowerment. Hindi kailangan magsakripisyo lahat, baduy na baduy ako dun e," he exclaimed.

Robin was also happy to say that he and Mariel have started discussing their plans to have a Catholic wedding sometime in January 2011. Robin'rsquo;s divorce from ex-wife Liezl Sicangco'mdash;whom he married under Islamic rites as well as a civil ceremony'mdash;was recently fin
