- Gladys Reyes and Christopher Roxas just recently celebrated their '25 years of togetherness'
- They revealed that they almost ended their relationship before
- Christopher shared what he did to save their relationship
Gladys Reyes and Christopher Roxas made headlines when they had their reaffirmation of wedding vows last January 23, at the Iglesia ni Cristo - locale of Tagaytay.
People admired the celebrity couple for reaching such milestone which is very rare nowadays.
However, during their TV guesting on Tonight With Arnold Clavio, they revealed that they almost ended their relationship before, which GMA reported.
Since they started at a very young age, the two experienced the 'cool-off' phase of a relationship.
"Parang over familiarity ang nangyari. Ako, gusto ko ring subukan naman 'yung lalabas kayo ulit ng mga kaibigan mo. Gusto mong ibuhay 'yung buhay mo," Christopher said.
"Ang term pa noon, kuya, cool off. Oh, hindi na alam ng mga millennials 'yan ngayon. May pa-cool off noon," Gladys added.
During their cool-off phase, they seldom see each other and was not in constant communication.
Gladys admitted that it came to a point where she really wanted to end their relationship for good.
"Noong parang napapansin ko na, teka lang ah, magdadalawang buwan na. Masyado ka nang nasasarapan doon. Tapos ako ano, reserve-reserve lang? Ang suwerte talaga nito sa 'kin! Parang na-realize ko na I think it's time so say goodbye na talaga, final goodbye," she explained.
Christopher learned about Gladys' decision to call it quits through a phone call.
He was sick at that time and has fever but he rode his motorbike all the way from Laguna to Antipolo, "Kahit nilagnat ako, nag-motor lang ako galing Laguna."
"Pagparada ko doon, siyempre nakakahiya naman pumasok. Though alam ko na pwede akong pumasok, siyempre, respeto sa magulang lagi. Naghintay lang ako sa labas. Eh dumating na siya galing taping," he added.
"Sabi ko, ano'ng ginagwa niya diyan eh 'di ba nag-usap na nga kami sa phone? Tama na, ayoko na. Pero 'yung nanay ko, naku botong-boto. Sabi nung nanay ko, 'Ano bang ginagawa? Nakakaawa! Umuulan, basang-basa doon, papasukin mo,'" Gladys said.
It was Gladys' family that welcomed Christopher inside their home.
"Ang background music noon, kanta pa ni Ate Reg—Regine Velasquez, "Tuwing Umuulan." Akalain mo! Eksakto. Tapos maya-maya "Kahit Isang Saglit" naman ni Mr. Martin Nievera. Ano 'to? Bakit parang umaayon doon sa nangyayari."
"Oh 'di ba ang ending, sa reaffirmation of vows ninong at ninang namin si Regine at si Martin," Gladys ended.
