Given their huge fan base, the MarNigo love team is without a doubt one of the most admired tandems in the entertainment industry. With that, it is clear that many people got affected when Maris Racal and Inigo Pascual stated that both of them were heartbroken with how things turned about between them in real life.
In an episode of Tonight with Boy Abunda in June, everyone was intrigued when Maris answered yes to the King of Talk Boy Abunda’s question if Inigo broke her heart. Months after the said interview, the MarNigo tandem are seen together again as they promoted their film titled I’m Ellenya L. Before the movie premiered on September 13, their guesting in our Kapamilya talk shows became their opportunity to clarify what truly happened between them.
Together, MarNigo guested on Tonight with Boy Abunda and revealed that even though they were not officially together, both got hurt because one of them was ready to commit and the other was not. They discussed how special they are to each other but despite of their feelings, the timing was just not right for them to become a real couple.

Although it is saddening that they did not become a real life couple now that most celebrity love teams are going reel to real, we can see how Maris and Inigo continue to keep their genuine friendship by supporting each other. Currently, Inigo is beginning to establish his career as a singer-songwriter in the international scene. Meanwhile, Maris presently focuses on her growth as an actress. She appears on Pamilya Ko as Peachy Ann Mabunga and she recently starred in Maalaala Mo Kaya as Idol PH grand winner Zephanie Dimaranan.
Indeed, it is a splendid thing how Maris and Inigo pursue individual growths as artists. But just in case you miss MarNigo together, look back on some of their photos together that display how special their connection will always be.
