- Angel Locsin shared that Neil Arce previously didn’t want to get married or have more kids
- She said it was the complete opposite of what she believes in
- To make their relationship work, they had to sit down and have a good and sincere talk on what they truly want to happen in their relationship
Angel Locsin gave a surprising trivia about her fiancè Neil Arce.
While the couple may look perfect as “relationship goals,” Angel opened up that they too had to go through rough times to smoothen their relationship. One of the challenges they had to face was their different perspectives on marriage and having kids.
Angel and Neil sat down to talk more about their relationship on their recent vlog via their YouTube channel. The actress shared that Neil already has a 13-year-old son but didn’t have any plans of settling down. He also didn’t want to have more kids, something that Angel doesn’t agree with in a relationship.
She said, “May anak na si Neil. Parang…ayaw niyang ikasal. Alam ko yun nung magkaibigan pa lang kami..Ayaw niyang ikasal, ayaw na niyang magkaanak uli.”
The couple knew that such disagreements are considered very important in a relationship. So, they had to sit down and talk about it seriously.
Angel recalled the talk they had, “So, kinausap ko siya, na parang… inirerespeto ko ‘yung desisyon mo, ‘yung gusto mo sa buhay. ‘Alam ko iyan bago pa ako pumasok sa ganitong situation. Pero papaano kung ako, gusto kong magkaanak, gusto kong mag-asawa?'”
“’Kailangan mong respetuhin din yung desisyon ko.’ So pinag-usapan namin kung papaano. Kung ano yung magwo-work para sa amin,” she added.
Angel said it is important to compromise and respect each other’s views. But in the end, they had to realize what truly matters in their relationship. Last June 29, 2019, the couple decided to announce that they are already engaged to be married.
