Aljur Abrenica and Kylie Padilla admit they didn't think of getting married at first.
Aljur Abrenica shared in an episode of Magandang Buhay that it only took two weeks to prepare for his wedding to Kylie Padilla last December 2018.
He said that they decided that their wedding should push through despite the limited time because it coincided with Kylie’s mother Liezl Sicangco and siblings visiting the country since they are based abroad.

"Masayang-masaya 'yung puso ko. Kasi simula nung nagkakilala kami ni Kylie nagbago lahat. 'Yung first time na nakita ko siya, 'yung pangarap ko nagbago rin, nasama na siya. Nadagdagan 'yung pangarap ko. So nag-ambisyon ako noon na siya na, nag-ambisyon na rin ako na magkaroon ng sariling pamilya. Looking back nga after ng kasal namin doon namin nakita na kaya pala namin pinagdaanan yon kasi dito kami dadalhin and it's all worth it, all worth it," he said.
Aljur also admitted that they initially didn't think of tying the knot until they saw a couple that inspired them to do so.
"Hanggang sa nakita ko 'yung mga wedding ritual. Sabi ko ang ganda nito, may basbas ng Diyos. Tapos magsasama-sama ang buong pamilya, magkakakilala sila. So nag-decide kaming magpakasal, so importante talaga ang kasal," he shared.
Aljur first had a rough relationship with his father-in-law Robin Padilla but it all went well eventually. In fact, he even described Robin as his “own father” because of how caring he is to him and Kylie.
"Si Papa Robin naman I respect him as a father, as a man, as an artist. Ngayon kasi hindi ko maintindihan ang pagkaiba ng father-in-law sa tatay. Ngayon parang tatay ko na rin siya. Ganun siya,"he said.
"Ganun siya, nagte-text. Inaalam kung saan kami magha-honeymoon. Kung saan, para bigyan kami ng pocket money. Sabi ko 'wow.' Parang tatay talaga," he added.
