Sunshine Dizon will be filing for an annulment of her marriage.
After the recent progress in their case, Sunshine Dizon has opted to drop the charges against her husband Timothy Tan.
In an interview with ABS-CBN News, the actress said that she decided to do so for their children.
"Siguro ang masasabi ko lang is, ultimately I'm a mother. It's sad that I won't be able to give my children exactly what they want. Masakit 'yun sa akin bilang ina na hindi ko na kayang ibalik 'yung dati at buohin 'yung pamilya namin," she said.
For Sunshine, just because she and her husband are no longer okay doesn’t mean that her kids should feel the same way towards their father.
"Ang pinaka-pwede ko na lang ibigay ay 'yung gawan ko ng paraan na hindi masira 'yung relasyon ng mga anak ko sa tatay nila so that's why we filed the desistance already," she added.
Sunshine filed a violation of Anti-Violence Against Women and Their Children Act of 2004 and concubinage case against Timothy after finding out that he allegedly had an affair.
Recently, Timothy issued a public apology to Sunshine, which the latter accepted in the spirit of Christmas.

While Sunshine has previously clarified that she and Timothy have not reconciled, she reiterated this time that she will be filing for annulment of their marriage.
"I also want to make it clear that hindi pa rin po tapos ang laban because I owe it to myself already to be free of all of this. So, I'm also filing na din for annulment,” she said.
“Marami pong bagay sa buhay na kailangan nating tanggapin na hanggang doon na lang talaga pero ang importante ngayon sa akin is ma-save ko 'yung konting pwede kong i-save na maibibigay ko sa mga anak ko," Sunshine continued.
She also pointed out that she is planning other things despite the withdrawal of her charges against Timothy.
