- Dominic Ochoa admitted he and his wife almost broke up because of miscommunication.
- At the end of the day, the couple managed to work things out.
Dominic Ochoa talked about his relationship with his wife Denise Go Ochoa in an Interview with Magandang Buhay.
Their relationship started in 2004 and they got married four years later. After a decade though, their relationship went through an upheaval. The actor narrated that the real reason for this was ‘miscommunication’.
“I ran for office and after that we almost separated because of miscommunication, which is nangyayari. Akala natin okay tayo but… right there and then noong last rally namin doon kami nag-away, doon kami naghiwalay. Parang boom! Tapos hindi ka pa nanalo. Parang mabigat. Pero at the end of the day, it’s all communication. Kailangan maganda ang komunikasyon niyo. Kailangan iparating mo sa kanya kahit ano ang nasa isip mo. Kasi akala ko ay okay sa kanya na tumakbo ako, okay sa kanya na ganito, hindi pala. So you really need to talk about it, every single thing,” the actor shared.
When he was asked about how did they were able to resolve this problem, the actor replied “Medyo tagilid noong una, pero noong latter part one has to give in. Hindi ko rin naman kasalanan, hindi rin naman niya kasalanan. I don’t want to point out kung sino ang may kasalanan dito, kung sino ang may pagkukulang. At the end of the day I feel that I need to do something as padre de pamilya para sa anak ko. Not for my wife but for the family.
“Mayroon tayong sinumpaan, we have to work things out. So slowly. Natutuwa ako ngayon dahil kahit ang dami naming trabaho mayroon na kaming oras. I see it from her also that she’s trying to find ways to be with the son, to be with me, which is not her. Hindi siya ganoon dati. Hindi rin ako ganoon dati. So nakikita namin ‘yung differences without telling na, o hindi na kailangang mag-away kami, hindi na ganun. So ‘yung effort sa isa’t isa na hindi na kailangan sabihin but bago mangyari ‘yon komunikasyon ang importante,” he added.
Dominic shared his thoughts about what he learned from the past issues of his family and said that communication is very important. “We have to talk about things talaga. Huwag mong ipagpabukas. If you can talk about it soon, sabihin mo na. … We are not perfect, no one is perfect,” he ended.
