What Richard Poon keeps in mind whenever he and wife Maricar Reyes get into a fight

Richard Poon and Maricar Reyes-Poon flew to their favorite country Japan to celebrate their third wedding anniversary.


Do Richard Poon and Maricar Reyes fight?

In a recent interview with PEP.ph (Philippine Entertainment Portal), the crooner said yes, and his explanation was something most couples must take note.

"I think every couple has their own share of argument, pero sa ’min, mostly it’s… Personality ko kasi, I’d like to be right, I’d like to like, ‘Ito yung tama!'

"She’s more tahimik than me, communicator ako, but she’s a very good listener.

"Pero she’s the type na, 'I don’t want to plan long' e ako I plan, like, ten years ahead."

Interestingly, it was Maricar's reserved personality that attracted him.

"Totoo yung sinasabi ng married mentors namin na, the thing that attracts you to the person, kapag nag-asawa na kayo, is the very same thing you’re gonna hate.

"Which you have to manage, kasi nga you have to keep yourself na 'hindi, hindi,' so halimbawa naiirita na siya sa 'kin na, 'Masyado kang ano, ang dami daming ginagawa, hindi ka na mag-relax,' she has to remind herself, 'Hindi, I like, I admire this person for being a go-getter.'

"Kasi minsan kapag nakalimutan mo, that same thing na nagustuhan mo becomes a negative.

"It’s like a two-edged blade."

DON'T GO TO BED ANGRY When Richard and Maricar do get into a fight, the couple would make sure to settle things before going to sleep.

"If you’re the mature one, kahit ikaw ang tama at siya mali, just reconcile. Don’t sleep angry kasi nga nagpa-pile sa girl, e."

He admitted that men let issues pass once it was done, but noticed that, for women, issues lingered.

"And hindi ako titigilan hangga’t nawala yung dabog mo. I have to find where that rock is, and say sorry.

"Kapag nag-sorry, tanggal ang rock.

"Alam mo kasi, may times na muntikan na mag-pile. Talagang bago matulog, 'Uy, gising ka muna, ayusin natin ’to, ayunsin natin ‘to.'

"Minsan I was like going to ASAP mga eight or nine in the morning, seven [a.m.] gising pa kami, nag-uusap pa kami because we had a fight.

"I could not sleep until maayos namin ‘to."

By the way, Richard and Maricar have a relationship blog Relationship Matters, where they share their learning and experiences from married life.
