Carla Abellana on prenuptial agreements: "[It's not] because you...doubt your marriage, that it will end up in separation one day. But because, siguro po, personally, coming from a broken family, I know what it’s like to be there, to be a single mom. Kumbaga, it’s just one way for a woman...to protect herself...”

Pabor si Carla Abellana, 33, magkaroon ng prenuptial agreement o prenup bago sila ikasal ng nobyong si Tom Rodriguez, 32.

Ang prenup ay legal na kasunduan sa pagitan ng magkarelasyon pagdating sa kanilang properties bago sila magpakasal.

Ayon sa legalzoon.com: “This agreement can set forth what will happen to your and your spouse's assets and income in the unfortunate event of divorce, separation or death.

“Most importantly, a prenuptial agreement can preserve the nature of property in the event the marriage ends.

“In other words, separate property can remain separate, instead of being subject to community property or equitable distribution laws.”

CARLA EXPLAINS WHY SHE wants a PRENUP

Para kay Carla, kailangan ang prenup sa mag-asawa “for practical reasons.”

Ipinaliwanag din ng Kapuso actress kung bakit sa tingin niya ay importante ang prenup.

“The idea of it, of course, well… concept of it, you need it for practicality reasons, just to be sure,” simula ni Carla nang matanong ng PEP.ph (Philippine Entertainment Portal) sa pocket presscon niya nitong March 5, Huwebes.

“But then, dapat hindi, because you should believe in your marriage, in your unity na hindi kayo aabot sa point na maghihiwalay kayo, and you have to separate all your assets.

“I guess it’s a topic that is, until today, being tackled by everyone, kasi nga medyo ano ‘yan, e, it’s a really big issue.”

Ayon kay Carla, nasabi na niya kay Tom na gusto niyang magkaroon ng prenup sakaling magdesisyon silang magpakasal.

“Ako, personally, and Tom knows naman din po, kailangan ng prenup, kailangan…

"Not because you don’t want to believe in your marriage, and that you want to doubt your marriage, that it will end up in separation one day.

"But because, siguro po, personally, coming from a broken family, I know what it’s like to be there, to be a single mom.

“Kumbaga, it’s just one way for a woman as well to protect herself, just in case things don’t work well in the marriage.”

Si Carla ay anak ng aktor na si Rey “PJ” Abellana kay Rea Reyes.

Pero naghiwalay ang dalawa, at si Carla ay pinalaki ng kanyang ina.

Ayon kay Carla, hindi tutol si Tom sa mungkahi niyang magkaroon sila ng prenup.

“Okay din po yun kay Tom, practical din po si Tom,” sabi ng aktres.

“Hindi naman po siya, ‘When you get married, what’s yours is soon to be mine.’

“Hindi naman po siya ganoon, e, kasi he’s very… ‘Sa iyo ‘yan.’”

ARE THEY ENGAGED ALREADY?

Limang taon nang magkarelasyon sina Carla at Tom.

Noong January 2019, natanong si Tom kung nag-propose na siya kay Carla.

“Sikreto,” nangingiting sagot noon ni Tom.

May pahayag din ang aktor nang matanong kung kailan niya gustong makasal sila ni Carla.

Sagot ni Tom, “Not in a rush, but it’s definitely working up to that, so it’s in the works.”

Makahulugan din ang mga sumunod niyang pahayag.

“Actually, most of it is there. So, konti na lang.

“I don’t wanna elaborate or reveal.

“Konting technicals na lang.

“For most part, everything is on track.”
