COUPLE Dingdong Avanzado and Jessa Zaragoza have admitted that they almost called it quits as husband and wife in the past because of jealousy.
“Parang may period na papunta sa seven-year itch. Kasi nga selosa sya (Jessa). There are times na feeling ko ‘yung pag-seselos n’ya parang too much,” said Avanzado, when asked if there was a time that they almost separated, during an interview on “Tonight With Boy Abunda,” on ABS CBN.
Zaragoza defended her being the jealous type of person. “Merong pagseselos na I’m sure maraming makaka-relate na kababaihan. Pag nagseselos ang isang babae, hindi ibig sabihin na-i-insecure sya. Minsan meron lang s’yang hinahanap na assurance na sa taong ‘yun na i-acknowledge mo kung ano na ‘yung position mo.”
Avanzado said: “She felt na parang hindi ko raw napaparamdam sa kanya so s’yempre inisa-isa namin ‘yun. But at that time, hindi kami nagtutugma. Iba ‘yung pag-iisip ko.”
But the couple said that everything has been settled when they put God in the center of their relationship.
After 16 years of marriage, the couple said that they are “blessed.”
“If you love someone, it’s a choice that you make. For me, when Jessa came into my life, it was a choice that I wanted to spend my life with her,” said Avanzado.
Zaragoza reacted: “Ang haba ng hair ko parang sa labas ng ABS CBN umabot.”
When asked how do they keep their married life strong and stable, Avanzado said: “Pwede ba ito sa TV? Minsan kasi kunyari meron kayong routine sa bahay. Let’s say pag-gising n’yo sa umaga, you’ll probably have breakfast. Instead of breakfast muna, breakfast in bed na lang muna.”
