In all romantic relationships, we both experience delight and despair, yet the most important thing about falling in love is that we learn, grow, and mature from it. In this edition of Kapamilya Snaps, celebrity couples share nine of their most profound, insightful lessons in love, which we can use to better deal with our own relationships with our partners.
1. “Never forget to celebrate the special occasions”
Liza Soberano and Enrique Gil have been a long-time couple now but even then, neither of them ever stopped at making the other feel good on special days. Their relationship is probably far from perfect but if they’ve been together for this long, they must be doing something right. Way to go, LizQuen!
2. “Take advice from your true friends and family”
Despite getting mixed reactions towards the announcement of their relationship, Arjo Atayde and Maine Mendoza were able to tune out the noise by recognizing whose opinion actually mattered — that of their real friends and family. It’s not like these two need the approval of anyone else. As long as they’re happy, that’s what matters.
3. “Wait for the right person.”
A challenge that celebrity couples face is being in the public’s eye far too much. Despite this, Jessy Mendiola and Luis Manzano show us that a happy ending is possible if we’re patient enough to wait for the right person. It takes a great deal of courage to not rush into things but we’re glad that these found all the waiting to be worth it.
4. “Find someone you are comfortable with.”
Lovers can also be the best of friends and this is a reality Jake Cuenca and Kylie Verzosa live by. Apart from being neighbors, these lovers see to it that they find that sense of peace in each other’s arms. Who else would you go to for comfort, if not your partner, right?
5. “Keep calm during fights.”
#KathNiel has been everyone’s OTP (one true pairing) since day one. What’s special about them is that they don’t entirely discourage fighting with your significant other, because, let’s face it — that happens. Instead, Kathryn Bernardo and Daniel Padilla seek to keep calm during fights, keeping in mind that as a couple, they still have one goal despite being in disagreement.
6. “Do not give up when faced with challenges.”
Loisa Andalio and Ronnie Alonte have had their fair share of troubles and it’s their “never give up” attitude that kept them together all this time. When faced with a challenge, these two kept their head up because they knew that they can only be stronger together. #LoiNie supporters are so proud of their growth!
7. “Always support each other.”
Support will come from a lot of different people but one that would matter a lot more than the others is that which comes from your beau. Janine Gutierrez and Rayver Cruz have been vocally supportive of each other’s projects and successes. It’s so great to see a healthy celebrity relationship like theirs. What a couple!
8. “Follow your heart.”
#KimXi is probably one of our most favorite celebrity couples, who went from on-screen lovers to true-to-life ones, so fabulously! They’ve been together for so long that it’s so hard to imagine Kim Chiu without Xian Lim and vice versa! I guess that’s what happens when you follow your heart just like these two did.
9. “Fight for your love.”
Love wins is the one thing that comes to mind when we think about Vice Ganda and Ion Perez’s relationship. They have waited far and long before they officially made their relationship public but boy was it worth it. This couple reminds us that if we find a love that we know is for us, we better fight for it.
