Maxene Magalona has revealed exactly when she knew her marriage to Rob Mananquil was over. In an interview with Toni Gonzaga, she revealed that she decided to end the relationship after realizing she no longer felt like herself. “At this moment I’m just… parang naisip ko enough. I don’t feel like myself anymore and I can see him going through it too, na parang, we’re all fighting,” she explained.
She also admitted that her decision to split permanently was the product of a mutual decision. “So I was that decision, ‘Okay, parang hindi na talaga contest’ and naiintindihan niya’s nasabi ko naman lahat iyon sa kanya.” “It’s actually more of a shared decision; so I encourage people to heal themselves before we get married or have kids, and unwittingly help our kids and those around us.”
Despite the heartbreak, Maxene shares that she’s open to dating again and that she “loves love.” I will be honest that I have been speaking and forming connections and I want to really connect,” she said. “I don’t want to let pain stop me from living my life the way I want to.”
Maxene and Rob tied the knot in Boracay last 2018 and had been together for almost four years before the actress formally announced their breakup through a heartfelt post last October. “Let go and let God. Move forward with grace and lightness in your heart,” she wrote.
