Celebrity couple JayR and Mica Javier, who have been together for more than seven years, have revealed the secret to their successful relationship.
On Magandang Buhay on Thursday, October 22, JayR said that "team work" and "respect" are the keys to the success of his relationship with Mica.
"Feeling ko if we continue 'yung ganitong keywords—team work and pasensiya—I think magiging successful ang aming relationship. 'Yun talaga 'yung what I go by when it comes to the marriage. Siyempre mahal ko si Mica at gusto ko longevity ang mangyari sa marriage namin. 'Yun talaga ang tinututukan ko, respeto sa kanya at pasensiya," said the R&B singer.
Mica echoed her husband's statement as she shared how they manage to make their relationship work despite their differences.
"Na-appreciate ko ang lahat ng pagkakaiba namin ni JayR. Lalo na nung quarantine na-realize ko talaga kung gaano kami kaiba ... Minsan naisip ko paano kami nag-ge-get along. Pero sobrang effortless nang pagka-mold ng relationship namin kasi nagsimula kami with respect for each other's individuality at 'yun ang isang bagay na ayaw na ayaw ko mawala sa relationship namin," said Mica.
"At the end of the day, si JayR talaga 'yan, ako, si Mica talaga ako. Pero kapag kinombine kaming dalawa we just become stronger together," she added.
During the guesting, Mica also shared her sweet message for her husband.
"Natutuwa ako na mas marami pa akong natututunan sa iyo at nag-e-enjoy ako na mas makilala ka pa as a husband. I will always be here for you, too. Hindi lang ako ganoon ka-vocal katulad mo pero ang isip ko at damdamin ko lagi siyang nago-overflow ng pagmamahal at respeto sa iyo," said Mica.
"I always tell you, you are the best. Alam mo naman ikaw ang pinakahinahangaan kong performer, artist, person. Sobrang humble. I learned so much from you and as much as you say that you respect me and you love me, I feel exactly the same for you and I'm looking forward to having a family with you too someday, soon. I love you so much," she added.
JayR, for his part, thanked his wife for her love and patience.
"Hindi ako nagkamali sa pagpili ng aking partner. Salamat sa pasensiya mo rin sa akin. Of course, I will always be here for you. Lahat ng problema na kailangan ng solusyon, lagi akong nandoon para tumulong," he said.
JayR and Mica tied the knot in Boracay last March, in time for their seventh anniversary as a couple.
