Keeping a relationship is indeed a difficult task, much more if there’s a kid involved. There are couples who do everything in order to stay together as long as they could and do the best that they could to set aside any grudges they have against each other just for the sake of giving their brood a complete family.
Take for example the rocky romance of estranged married couple Marlon Ilaban and Patricia “Patty” Calumpang, portrayed by Zanjoe Marudo and Angelica Panganiba respectively. They had to put their marriage annulment on hold because of the responsibility their close friends Emily (Denise Laurel) and Brad Cortez (Patrick Garcia) had left upon their shoulders after their death – to be the guardians of their unico hijo Robin (JJ Quilantang).
Together, they’ve gone through a lot of challenges and troubles in pursuit of securing their
guardianship for their godson and did everything to protect him against her cunning biological Aunt Natalia (Maxene Magalona) and her partner Peter (Ivan Padilla).
They actually got back together and tried living under one roof, but to no avail because their romance just didn’t work out again. They headed on separate ways and had the chance to meet other people and develop romantic ties with them. Now that Patty already let go of her ex-beau Dr. Harold Miguel (Carlo Aquino) and Marlon’s affair with his childhood sweetheart Leah (Isabelle Daza) is on the rocks, many of the viewers are pining for them to rekindle whatever they had in the past, a fun Kapamilya Poll published on ABS-CBN.com Entertainment revealed.
The Marlon-Patty loveteam was indeed the landslide winner as they got 98.02%, versus the 1.95% of Harold-Patty and 0.02% of Marlon-Leah.
In spite of the kilig and delight that Carlo’s appearance on the show brought to the audiences, particularly to the avid followers of his pairing with recurring on-screen partner and ex-girlfriend Angelica Panganiban, it seemed that their supporters were terribly affected when their characters called it quits.
Meanwhile, the chemistry between Zanjoe and Isabelle that was formed during their first team up in the 2016 afternoon soap opera Tubig At Langis seemed to fail to make its magic work because of the latter’s antagonistic and devious role in the aforementioned daytime drama.
Now that Playhouse is approaching to its exciting finale, who among these three pairs you want to have a happily ever after?
