He also shared that it’s also a huge factor that you and your partner have one thing in common that you both enjoy doing like for their part they both love traveling.
“Enjoy each other’s company, Talk about things. Enjoy traveling together. Sleep together. Maglandian kayo once in a while. Be appreciative of things both big and small. I think it’s very important to verbalize appreciation because you don’t know how this day has gone.”
The Leyte Fourth District Representative added that she and her husband prefer simple things over a luxurious lifestyle, which made them appreciate each other’s company more.
“At saka low maintenance kami because we don’t have to do big things for each other to make us appreciate the relationship we have. Like hindi kami big on celebrations or on birthdays. Parang he’s never pressured to buy me anything. In the same way na I’m never pressured to stage a production for him.”
