MANILA, Philippines - Less than two years after getting married, businesswoman Cristina Decena has parted ways with TV host-comedian Ariel Villasanta.
Decena herself talked about the split in a recent media huddle. She recalled that she and the other half of the Ariel and Maverick duo have had misunderstandings like any normal couple, but would often reach a compromise.
But it was a problem that they had two months ago which apparently became the last straw that compelled Villasanta to move out from their home and return to his family in Marikina. She, however, did not detail the said dilemma.
According to Decena, Villasanta ended their relationship through a text message. In a report posted by PEP, Decena recalled:
"Noong mag-text nga siya, malinaw na ayaw na niya. Ano pa ba ang gusto niyang gawin ko? Ginawa ko na ang lahat para makita niya na handa akong sumunod sa mga gusto niya. Kahit na alam kong mahihirapan ako, susundin ko pa rin siya dahil mag-asawa kami-dahil mahal ko siya. Hindi niya ako siguro kayang harapin kaya dinaan na lang niya sa pag-text..."
She added that Villasanta pulled an "it's not you, it's me" on her, saying that he has to "heal" himself.
"Hindi ko siya maintindihan. Ano ba ang ayaw niya? Lahat naman ibinigay ko sa kanya. Handa akong makinig sa kanya kung anuman ang problema niya. Pero parang sarado na ang isipan niya. Gusto niyang sundin na lang ang gusto niya. 'Yun ang hindi ko pa rin maintindihan hanggang ngayon," she lamented.
Despite the separation, Decena, stressed that she feels no animosity towards Villasanta. Truth be told, he was a good husband, she added.
"Binigay din niya sa 'kin ang lahat," said she in a separate report by abs-cbnNEWS.com.
It remains uncertain whether the couple could still sort things out between them.
"Siguro panahon nalang makakapagsabi, hindi ko pa kayang sagutin 'yan ngayon."
Decena and Villasanta exchanged vows on Nov. 6, 2010 in Hong Kong. Hoping to get married around the world, the two also got hitched in Macau, Thailand, and Japan, and had planned to do the same in countries in Europe, U.S., and Africa. They were supposed to hold their Philippine wedding on Dec. 12 in Manila.
The PEP report added that Decena has already spoken to her lawyers about the annulment of their wedding in other countries.
