The sacrament of marriage is sacred between a husband and a wife who promises to love and cherish each other until their last breath.
While many people had been longing to have a happy marriage, it is a sad reality that there are many factors that may ruin their relationship, thus not all couple ended up to have a blissful one.
For Kapamilya star Cristine Reyes, marriage is something she treasures most.
In an Instagram post on January 8, the actress posted her photo with husband Ali Kathibi while having a vacation and wrote a prayer with it.
“Dear God, I pray for my marriage right now.”
“Please guard my relationship with my husband and protect us against elements that tempt or taunt us to ruin what we have.”
“Convict our hearts when we are wrong or un-righteous, fill us with a passion to get better and bless us with a deep love for each other in Jesus name AMEN.”
Many netizens wrote “Amen” in the comments section as they agreed with what Cristine had prayed for.
On the other hand, Ali also posted on his IG account using the same photo and wrote: “I vow to still grab your butt even when you’re old and wrinkly.”
Cristine and Ali met through a common friend in 2005. It was only in 2013 when Cristine started to have a ‘small’ crush on Ali when their friend Hale frontman Champ Lui Pio became a matchmaker directing Cristine to Ali. Since then, they started hanging around until love found its way.
Cristine and Ali got married in January 2016. The couple had been blessed with a daughter named Amarah.
Meanwhile, many netizens had speculated that the couple was having a marital problem which prompted Cristine to post such prayer.
