Wedding Material

MANILA, Philippines - In an industry where relationships appear to have shot shelf lives and changing partners happen as often as changing clothes, it's always a breath of fresh air to hear of stars getting serious with their relationships and actually looking into the possibility of tying the knot.

The frontrunner among the newlywed-wannabes is sexy actress Ara Mina who's admittedly very happy with her new relationship with Bulacan, Bulacan Mayor Patrick Meneses.

Although the 33-year-old actress was initially reluctant to confirm their relationship, she now eagerly revealed that the idea of settling down is not that unthinkable.

''Oo naman. Nandoon na kami sa gano'ng usapan,'' she said in an interview with Interaksyon.com posted on Thursday, ''Nasabi ko naman na before na ready na ako-ready na akong magpakasal. I'm in this stage of my life na hinahanda ko na ang magiging next chapter ng buhay ko.''

But more than her sheer willingness to marry, what makes Ara a good catch for Patrick is the fact that she's one mean kitchen ninja as she just obtained her Culinary Arts degree three months ago. Aside from that, the actress boasts financial and business know-how, which can be attested by her own beauty product line, Ara's Secret.

Patrick, on the other hand, is known to be a respected politician and has been touted as a ''good'' person by his subordinates, according to past reports.

So in this fickle world of showbiz, who else makes an ideal marriage pair?

Miss Universe and Prince Charming

From colleagues to lovers, ''Umagang Kay Ganda'' co-hosts Andrei Felix and Venus Raj's weave their own public love story.

Although their relationship is relatively young, as they're only about to celebrate their first anniversary next month, Andrei and Venus, in a recent interview with PEP posted on Oct. 9, candidly revealed that the subject of marriage has crossed their minds.

The 2010 Miss Universe 4th runner-up said, ''Siyempre ayaw mo naman na boyfriend mo siya for the rest of your life. Gusto mo na darating at darating kayo do'n.''

Andrei, meanwhile, blurted in the same interview, ''Ang tanga ko na lang kung papakawalan ko pa 'to!''

One of their greatest ''strengths'' as a couple would probably be the fact that they've built their relationship around the strong foundation of friendship. This approach, according to the couple, allowed them to discover their personal strengths and weaknesses that eventually paved the way for them to adjust to each other. More, they've already met each other's respective families and have, in fact, established good ties with each of them.

Superstar Couple

Kapuso royalties Marian Rivera and Dingdong Dantes rankhigh among the industry's elite list of power couples. While both remain noncommittal as to when their much-awaited wedding would be, Dingdong-who's been hogging the headlines lately due to infidelity rumors-flatly divulged in a PEP report on Oct. 24 that he hopes that the ''Extra Challenge'' host would already be ''the one'' for him.

''Kasi siyempre, we always believe there's a proper time for that [wedding]. And siyempre, with God's intervention, dun namin malalaman talaga ang lahat.

''But to answer your question, 'Is she the one?' I sincerely hope so,'' said Dingdong.

If there's one thing that they have proven and are continuously proving to their naysayers, it is the fact they are willing to stand by their relationship through thick and thin and rally to each other's side at all times, despite all the controversies. That, of course, would be a good attitude to adapt to their married life, should they end up being Mr. and Mrs. Dantes.
