Hours before Mar’s announcement, Korina took to Instagram to share a snapshot of two old postcards showing a simple exchange of love notes between her and her husband.

The 50-year-old broadcast journalist said that she’s aware of the huge responsibility that comes with Mar’s decision to run for the top position in the country.

But no matter what happens, she takes comfort in the fact that the love between her and Mar will remain the same.

“There are many big ideas, big words, big dreams that will be said today.

“Let me share with you two postcards taped on our bathroom mirror for years now.

“No matter what the bigness of this world, it will still and always be the simple and unwavering truths that will prevail—Presidency or otherwise,” said Korina, referring to the “Mar hearts Korina” and “Korina hearts Mar postcards that she posted on Instagram.

Its a big day today...for a lot of people. I hear it is a historic passing of the torch --- from one like-minded to another, between kindred spirits and who share one heart for the Filipinos. Amidst differences, ubiquitous intrigue, power play, creeping doubts and fears, it must still and always be country above self. In a country where reluctance seems to be a primordial credential, there is no reluctance in my husband Mar. He is ready for the challenge, willing to serve hand and foot as he has, and able to bring this country to as close to where it deserves to be as he can take it. Honor here is not in declining power. Honor here is in accepting sacrifice. There are many big ideas, big words, big dreams that will be said today. Let me share with you two postcards taped on our bathroom mirror for years now. No matter what the bigness of this world, it will still and always be the simple and unwavering truths that will prevail --- Presidency or otherwise.
