“For me, okay naman ako mag-isa."
These were the words of Ruffa Gutierrez, stressing that she does need to be in a relationship to feel whole.
"Kaya ko naman mabuhay with my kids, with my dogs and my career. Buo ako sa sarili ko,” she said in an interview on I Feel U.
Ruffa admitted that she actually does not want to get married again.
“Ayaw ko nga magpakasal ulit eh kasi ‘di ba, you have to go through an annulment again. Tapos marami akong nakikitang marriages na parang they are just with their partners because for the kids, just to make it work,” she stated.
Ruffa remarked that her previous relationships changed her perception of love.
“Nagbago talaga. I am very different when it comes to my perception of love. A lot of my Bible study-mates are saying, ‘Ruffa, you have to get married again. We really pray for you na you’ll have a family again.’ Guys, I’m okay. You don’t need to pray for me. I’m not lonely. I’m fine the way I am," she stated.
Ruffa said that she is still open nonetheless to the idea of marriage with the right partner and if it feels right.
“If the time comes that my partner will propose or I feel that it’s right and I feel that it will make me happy forever, kahit 70 pwede ako magpakasal. Why not?” she stated.
She added that when it comes to love, each person should have the liberty to love someone whoever they want to love.
“To each his own. Minsan we like younger guys, we like older guys, we like being married. I think there’s no such thing as traditional love anymore. It’s up to you. That’s why they say love is love,” she remarked.
