On Tonight with Boy Abunda, Jolina Magdangal shared the secret to her healthy relationship with husband Mark Escueta.
The happily married couple who share a son together are about to celebrate their fourth wedding anniversary. Jolina shared, “Commitment talaga ang pag-aasawa, at isa pang malaking commitment pag family na kayo. Madali niyong gagawin (ang mga bagay-bagay nang magkasama) kasi alam niyong nagtutulungan kayo.”
The singer actress who’s to release a new album with Star Music entitled Back to Love was also asked whether she believes in second chances in love in the sense that “kung nagkasala ang isa, you (would still) go back to that relationship?”
Jolina replied, “Ako, tingin ko, oo. Kaya nga dapat bago kayo ikasal di ba, pag-isipan niyong mabuti kasi babalik kayo doon. Like ako, pag minsan namimiss ko si Mark, papanoorin ko lang yung (video noong) kinasal kami tapos parang bumubongga ulit yung feelings. Feeling ko talaga, huwag niyo lang kakalimutan saan nagsimula - yung tulungan from the start, kasi babalik talaga sila doon para bumongga ulit yung feelings.”
The host then asked, “Walang gagawin si Mark na ‘di mo mapapatawad?”
“Wala, sa tingin ko wala,” Jolina replied. “Kasi kinomit ko yung sarili ko sa kanya. (…) Unless naman sumobra na hindi naman second chance, third chance, fourth chance, baka naman pag tenth na, yun na yung mag-isip na tayo. Pero pag second chance, parang siguro kayang kayang kayang kaya pang ayusin kung gugustuhin.”
When asked, “paano niyo pinapapanatili ang apoy” in their relationship, the singer actress shared, “usap. Usap nang lahat ha, wala yung kumbaga, ‘ayaw kong sabihin sa kanya baka ma-stress siya,’ walang ganoon. Hangga’t pu-pwede namin pag-usapan, pag-usapan. Kahit ano pang klase ng usapan.”
In the segment Fast Talk, the singer actress was a bit rattled by the host’s questions on sex. She was asked, “Sino ang unang nangangalabit ikaw o si Mark?” Jolina answered, “hindi ko alam, sabay!” On whether it’s lights on or lights off, she chose the latter. When asked to choose between sex and chocolates, she vehemently answered, “Both!”
