MANILA, Philippines – Actress Toni Gonzaga said she is sticking to her principle – no sex before marriage — but admitted there have been instances when it is difficult to follow her decision.
“Sobrang hirap, sobrang hirap panindigan. Honest lang talaga ako! Mahirap talaga panindigan. Hindi naman ako magsasabi ng napakabanal ko,” the actress said in an interview on Aquino and Abunda Tonight show.
Gonzaga, who never hid her plan to finally settle down, is currently in a relationship with long-time boyfriend Paul Soriano, a TV and commercial director.
She also revealed they never slept together in the same room whenever they went on a trip out of town as advised by her mom to “avoid temptations.”
“You do not put yourself in that kind of situation and temptation,” she said.
She also related how her mother is so “protective” and concerned about her daughter.
“Nakakaloka ‘yung mommy ko, pag nanonood kami (Soriano) ng sine, out of the blue, makakakuha kami ng text na, ‘Please stay away from temptation,’” the Starting Over Again star narrated. (Click here to read more)
