JM De Guzman and Charee Pineda share their views on pre-marital sex


082112-jmcharee_main.jpgAs the series Angelito: Ang Bagong Yugto deals with issues that stem from teenage pregnancy and pre-marital sex, the cast of the show’s second season shared their thoughts on the issues that the youth in the country deal with today.

Angelito star JM De Guzman said that parents play a very important role in teaching their children about sex education when they reach the right age. “Siyempre dapat alam natin kung ano yung gagawin natin, alam natin yung tama sa mali. Sa ngayon kasi, mas importante yung gina-guide tayo ng parents natin, dapat ma-inform yung tao na hindi basta-basta yung pre-marital sex. Puwede siya magresulta sa mga bagay na puwede mong pagsisihan kapag hindi pa dapat. Masasabi kong hindi siya okay lalo na sa mga batang hindi na-ga-guide.”

His on-screen partner Charee took a more pragmatic view on the situation. “Kasi pag teenager at saka yung mga nasa 20s, prone talaga yan sa pagkakamali eh. Mas okay naman talaga na mangyari naman yun after wedding pero kung may pre-marital sex, siguro kung gagawin mo yun dapat aware ka sa consequences at kung paano mo siya iha-handle after kasi pag nangyari na yun at saka yung regrets at pag-iisip saka lang siya pumapasok eh. Kaya mas okay talaga pag in love ka, gamitin mo pa rin yung utak mo (laughs)… Mas okay talaga na after wedding muna pero kung hindi naman maiiwasan, maging ready ka na lang sa consequences na haharapin mo after,” she explained.

Kaye Abad, who plays Jenny in the series, said she believes that people who find themselves drawn to that kind of temptation should learn to take responsibility for their actions. “May nakapagsabi kasi sa akin na importante daw na sexually compatible kayo ng asawa mo, so paano natin malalaman yun kung hindi susubukan? Yun lang naman ang sinabi sa akin (laughs). So since yung mga kabataan din naman ngayon, huwag na tayo mag-paka-plastic, hindi niyo na rin maiiwasan na lahat ng kabataan ngayon ay mapupusok na. Pero sa panahon ngayon, patagalan naman ng mag-asawa ngayon, hindi katulad noong panahon. So maaaring i-guide na lang ng mga magulang na paano maiiwasan and siguro malaking tulong na rin itong show na ito para makita nila na okay lang naman pero be responsible dahil hindi madaling magkaroon ng anak ng hindi pa financially stable or emotionally stable,” she said.

The newest member of the cast, John Prats said having a strong family support system is important when dealing with this kind of issue. “The most important thing is alam nila talaga yung consequences ng gagawin nila. Totoo yun na dapat talaga mag-isip muna, pero minsan hindi talaga tayo nakakapag-isip (laughs). Importante siguro yung guidance ng family. Kasi sa akin hindi talaga nagkulang yung sa family ko at nakita ko naman when I saw Cams and yung husband niya, nakita ko yung hirap pag nag-aasawa. Minsan bibili na lang ng rubber shoes yung husband pero iisipin niya muna kung kailangan ba niya talaga or gusto lang niya? Siyempre iisipin na niya yung pag-aaral ng anak niyo, yung future ng anak nila. Malaking responsibilidad, hindi biro-biro, dapat pag-isipan talaga. Kahit masaya, kailangan talaga pag-isipan mo ng maraming beses yun,” he explained.

For Sam Concepcion, saving yourself for the right person is better than giving into your emotions when you’re not yet mature enough to handle it. “Para sa akin, depende yan sa pag-mature ng isang tao. Hindi naman kasi maiiwasan sa mga teenagers na madaming nangyayari. Marami akong kaibigan na mga batang ama pero para sa akin mas maganda talaga kung ire-reserve yun para sa asawa mo or someone special. Pero depende sa kondisyon ng isang tao, I’ve nothing against yung pro or hindi as long as alam mo yung tama at mali. Just stand for what you’re going to do,” he said.
