A loving and devoted husband still exists – whether in fiction or real life. To restore your faith in finding a spouse so close to perfection, take Cardo (Coco Martin) from FPJ’s Ang Probinsyano as an example. He may be just an onscreen character but he is just as ideal, proven in these scenes from the long-running primetime series.
He takes the weight of saving the country on his shoulders but when stripped off his police uniform and tough façade, he can be the sweetest, softest husband on earth.
Cardo knows how to build promises for his wife, Alyana (Yassi Pressman). When they landed in a new hiding place away from the city, he gave her his words that he will restore their happy family. Cardo knows he’s putting Alyana’s future on hold, so he vowed to make it up to her one day. As long as they have each other, no amount of trials can tear them apart because, in Cardo’s words, she is his strength and life.
At one point in his life, Cardo swapped the intimidating angst with tender dreams for Alyana and their family. He thought of leaving his post to focus on being a family man, however simple their life would be. Even the prestige of being a staunch member of an elite police force can’t compare to the joy of building a happy home. He is willing to give up everything for Alyana. For him, their love is always strong enough to redeem their family from all the chaos surrounding them.
The dauntless cop won’t mind trading his weapons with kitchen tools. Making home-cooked meals is his favorite way of showing his affection to her apart from filling her heart with warm, fuzzy ‘banat.’ He said she’d always be the prettiest and sexiest woman in his eyes even if he gains weight because of his cooking.
Add to that his commitment to bring her to work whenever he has the chance. On the way to Alyana’s workplace, Cardo told his wife that he is proud of her. He cupped her face and said she will go places.
What’s the sweetest way there is to end the day but to share stories and dreams together. Keeping Alyana close, Cardo soothed her weariness by telling her fun anecdotes about his province life. He also expressed how lucky he felt for having a beautiful wife, adding that he’d rather choose a loving spouse than fortune, comparing his simple life to Lito (Richard Gutierrez)’s massive success.
Cardo took a break from his death-defying operations. His biggest mission now is to love and take care of Alyana. He even wakes up earlier in the morning to prepare her meals and cooks again for dinner.
However, there was a point in the current chapter of their love story where Cardo and Alyana went through a series of rift. Cardo proved he will go the extra mile to fix the troubles by serving his wife. But Alyana was annoyed than pleased when he tasted Cardo’s dish.
To finally mend the cracks, he apologized for all his shortcomings and said he did everything to be the best husband to her even though he’s far from being perfect. Eaten up with guilt over a night of mortal sin, which Cardo is still yet to find out, Alyana accepted her husband’s apology and promised to start anew with him.
Will Cardo ever find out Alyana’s mistake? Don’t miss an episode of FPJ’s Ang Probinsyano on Kapamilya Channel, Kapamilya Online Live and A2Z Channel 11.
