While achieving a “happily ever after” is deemed unlikely for couples who are both in show business, La Luna Sangre actress Maricar Reyes and her crooner-husband Richard Poon are among those pairs who are able to prove that it is still possible since they have been married for nine years now and are about to mark a decade of blissful marriage on June 9!
They first met in the music video shoot of his single “You And I” in 2009, wherein she was his leading lady. In their first interview together in the now-defunct morning talk show Kris TV in 2012, Richard said that he purposefully distanced himself from her since their first encounter, but fate had other plans for them as they bumped into each other again at the Star Magic Ball in 2010 and eventually became good friends. They announced their relationship that same year and got married on June 9, 2013 through grand Christian ceremony held at a hotel in Alabang, Muntinlupa City.
As many perceive their marriage as perfect, or all sunshine and rainbows, the couple has been open in their media interviews that they, too, have their own share of misunderstandings. But they didn’t let those affect their relationship and make them love one another less.
Being one of our ultimate relationship goals, they launched a blogsite named “RelationshipMattersPH”, in which they discuss various topics with regards to relationships and everything in between through their blogs. It had wide readership and received positive feedbacks, which inspired them to write a self-help book titled “10 Things We Fight About” that was published in 2017. They eventually turned it into a YouTube channel, wherein they give relationship advices through a series of videos.
For their ninth anniversary, the actress posted on Instagram a montage of their loveliest photos together through the years, which she captioned: “9yrs. Still with the one who fights me the most but knows me best. One of the biggest reasons why my mind and heart becomes clearer with each passing year. Still with the one who I admire very deeply. I am grateful for you & for The One who sent you to me.”
Sweet, isn’t it? But you’ll surely get more kilig once you see Maricar and Richard’s beautiful photos together in this gallery!
