Everyone was delighted to hear the good news when Richard Gutierrez and Sarah Lahbati announced that their wedding will push through next year.
During the media conference of his upcoming movie Unbreakable, the actor admitted that like any other relationship, they reached a point where they needed to face challenges together.
"Maraming instances na nagkaroon kami ng falling out. Nagkaroon ng challenges sa relationship namin, but then we're there for each other until now,” he said.
Despite the trials, they never broke up.
"Hindi naman talaga muntik nang mag-break, but we have challenges, mga misunderstanding. Normal naman for a relationship to be challenged. Parang binibigay rin 'yun ni God para ma-test kayong dalawa kung gaano niyo kamahal ang isa't isa and 'yung relationship."
Richard then expressed his excitement on marrying the actress.
“Marami na kaming pinagdaanan for three years. This solidifies our relationship and it solidifies our relationship with God and for the family. It's a next step in our relationship. Malalim na ang relationship namin, marami na kaming experiences and parang this is the perfect time for us to get married.”
