In Maricar Reyes’ latest vlog, she talked about the importance of honesty in a relationship and in her case, she told everything to her then boyfriend Richard Poon.
"Noong hindi pa kami dating ni Richard, I made some mistakes of my own sa past," she said.
"Nagdadalawang isip ako kung sasabihin ko sa kanya o hindi. Noong una, hindi ko sinasabi. But eventually there was one evening, tinawagan ko siya ulit. Naisip ko, 'Bahala na.' Pa-cute pa ako, kasi nakakatakot, e. It's very difficult to tell bad things about yourself to your partner. Siyempre, gusto mo mag-pa-impress, 'di ba?” she added.
She continued, “Eventually, tumawag ako sa kanya, and I told him lahat ng baho ko na nakakahiya. Kung ayaw na niya ako after telling him all the things that I wanted to tell him, e 'di huwag. E 'di tapos na. At least, before anything got more complicated, nasabi ko na."
Maricar then said that maturity played a big role for her to be transparent towards her husband.
"Sometimes, when you're younger, you're more emotional, more idealistic. ‘Pag nakarinig ka ng mali, akala mo end of the world na, e. Pero ngayon, having gone through some stuff, ako, I've realized the value of truth.
"Maganda kasi na alam ng partner mo 'yung kabuuan mo. Since alam niya 'yung bad ko, alam ko rin 'yung bad niya, mahal ko siya nang buo. Walang kondisyon — good or bad, I love you."
Richard agreed and said, "You want to end up marrying somebody that can handle your whole truth.”
"Telling the truth to each other, malalaman na, 'Ah, kaya niya ako.' You want a long-term relationship, e. Kasi 'pag kaunti pa lang 'yung truths na nilabas mo, hindi niya kinayanan, paano pa kayo magsasama ng buong buhay niyo, na magkakaanak pa kayo, at marami pa kayong pagdadaanan together?" he shared.
"Masarap ang feeling kapag fully known ka, and yet, mahal na mahal ka pa rin,” Maricar added.
Richard and Maricar tied the knot in 2013.
