They revealed growing up watching the long-running drama anthology with their parents, thus, it’s truly a pleasure and a dream come true for them to have their story featured.
When asked what keeps their relationship alive, both of them divulged that it’s their unconditional love for one another.
Charo commented, “That is how you define great love or finding that great love, ‘di ba? ‘Yong unconditional love na minamahal ninyo ang bawat isang katauhan, ‘di ba? It’s the person in you, Tanch, that Sarah truly loves and it’s the person in Sarah that Tanch really loves. And you can bare your soul, you can be the person that you are and you allow each other to grow and nadoon pa rin talaga ‘yong suporta at pagmamahal at pagtitiwala.”
With regards to the challenges that put their relationship to the test, Tanch disclosed that it’s the differences in their priorities since she already had a son when they met. Nonetheless, she still got attracted to Sarah because she was amazed by how her partner has easily accepted their relationship and remained faithful to God in spite of the struggles that they have to go through as a couple.
“Sobrang grateful lang din po, Ma’am Charo, kasi nakikita ko sa anak ko, sa bata na ang nakikita lang po sa aming dalawa ay pagmamahal and wala po siyang fear na ma-judge siya kung ano mang pamilya ang meron siya. Mas ako pa nga po at first ‘yong natakot for him, pero siya, naniwala po siya sa kung anong meron kami. Hindi po perpekto sa mata ng mundo, pero mahal naman po niya ‘yong pamilya niya. And grateful na po ako doon,” Tanch stated.
Sarah seconded it by saying how intelligent Tanch’s son is, so it’s been a bliss and easy for her to raise him opposite her.
While they are well loved because of their lovely bond, Tanch admitted that they, too, have their own share of quarrels and misunderstandings. But they always choose to look at the brighter sides of it.
“I think, isa rin po sa pinaka-importante is ‘yong mag-mature kayo. ‘Yong okay lang magkamali kayo, na mag-aaway kayo on petty things lang, ‘yong maliliit na bagay, pero make sure na may matututunan kayo so you can apply next time,” she said.
When it comes to their aspirations as a couple, they told Charo that they wishes to have their own house and become financial stable. They also want to raise their son Davi well and full of love, in order for him to become someone who will be compassionate with sense of empathy towards other people and not judgmental as he grows up.
At present, Sarah still works as a flight attendant, while Tanch quitted from her job to undergo training to become a commercial pilot
As they venture on vlogging, they imparted how joyful they are to be able to share their lives and inspire others through this platform.
