Ace Espinosa asks for annulment of marriage to Maricel Morales

Action star Ace Espinosa and former sexy actress Maricel Morales have been living separate lives for three years now but it was only recently did the two consider having their marriage annulled.

"Three years na kaming hiwalay [but I filed for annulment] two months ago," reveals Ace in an interview with GMA-7 showbiz talk show Startalk last October 28.

Looking back, Ace admits that he had no inkling about their separation, saying that his estranged wife left for the United States to do a series of shows. "Hindi ko alam na hihiwalayan na pala niya ako [nung umalis siya].

When Maricel took off, it was then that Ace realized that it could be the sign that their marriage was over-a bond that lasted for four years.

According to Maricel, among the grounds for annulment is psychological incapacity. In her separate interview, the actress stopped short of identifying who has psychological problems, claiming that she wants to obey court orders. "I cannot give details right now kasi nasa korte na yung case namin," explains the former sexy star.

It was difficult for Ace to accept the end of their relationship. "Siguro nagising na lang ako na ganito na. Nag-decide [na rin ako na wala na talaga].

After thinking things over, the action star decided that it's time to let go of the past. "Para sa akin kasi kapag ang lalaki nagdesisyon, yun na yun."

The action star says that he has remained single ever since he and Maricel parted ways. "Ako wala [akong karelasyon ngayon]," but he claims that Maricel just recently found herself a lover. "Meron siya, kalat naman. Kahit sa tapings dinadala niya," he notes.

Even if they no longer live under the same roof, Ace stresses the importance of respect. "Kahit wala na kayo, dapat yung respeto nandoon pa rin saka hindi naman ako naging pabaya sa mga anak ko."

For her part, Maricel says that she is not dating anyone right now, contrary to what her ex-husband said. "Wala akong karelasyon. Hayaan nalang natin [yung sinasabi ni Ace na may karelasyon ako]. Sa korte na lang namin pagtatalunan yun."

Maricel and Ace last saw each other on October 14 during the birthday party of their eldest child. They admit that there wasn't much interaction between them but they remain civil toward each other. The couple have two children, who are both in the custody of Maricel.
