FOREVER – There are showbiz marriages (or relationships) that last forever. As part of the marital vow says, “Till death do us part.”
Let’s cite some examples,starting with Susan Roces and the late Fernando Poe Jr. They remained married till the end of time.
Boots Anson and Pete Roa. Boots found her “ikalawang gloria” in Atty. King Rodrigo.
Lorna Tolentino and Rudy Fernandez.
Gloria Romero and Juancho Gutierrez.
Marita Zobel and Boy Roxas.
ZsaZsa Padilla and Dolphy (They were not married but their live-in romance lasted for more than 20 years. Zsa Zsa’s into relationship with a noted architect, Conrad Onglao. They plan to tie the knot one of these days).
Pia Arroyo and Francis Magalona. (The marriage of Francis’ parents, Pancho Magalona and Tita Duran, lasted a lifetime).
Camille Prats and Anthony Linsangan (Camille remarried).
Needless to say, there were woes along the marital road…bumpy and rocky. No marriage is perfect, after all. But they remained together till death of their husbands.
LONG AND LASTING – While on the subject of marriage, Highspeed cites long and lasting love in showbiz.
