Inamin ni Matteo Guidicelli na matagal niyang pinag-isipan bago siya nag-propose sa misis na niya ngayong si Sarah Geronimo.
Sa isang interview ngayong Lunes, June 15, sinabi ng aktor na katakut-takot na dasal ang ginawa niya bago nagdesisyong mag-propose kay Sarah.
Ayon kay Matteo, “Kung alam mo lang kung ilang prayers… hahaha!
“Before I got married, I would always ask people, sabi ko, ‘How will you know when the time is right to propose?’”
Bagamat alam daw niyang si Sarah na ang gusto niyang pakasalan, nagkaroon pa rin daw siya ng mga agam-agam bago mag-propose.
“I want her to be my wife. How would you know?”
"They would tell me, ‘Matteo, you will just know, you will just know,’" kuwento ni Matteo sa Facebook Live ng preacher na si Bro. Bo Sanchez.
Giit ni Matteo, sigurado siyang mahal niya si Sarah, pero gusto pa rin daw niyang makatiyak.
“I love this girl so much, but how will you just know?
“Sarah and I have been together for six years.
“Sabi ko, ‘I really love this girl, I want to be with her for the rest of my life.’
“But siyempre, there’s still doubts in my heart na, ‘how will you take this leap of faith?
“I’m gonna be separated from my family. I’m not gonna be with them anymore.
“I will start my own family."
Hanggang sa dumating daw ang araw na naramdaman ni Matteo na si Sarah na talaga ang babaeng gusto niyang makasama habambuhay.
“I want to do that, but did I have the courage to do that? And how do you just know?
“Days would just go… days, days, days…
“And there’s this one day, I just knew. I don’t understand why.
“I always knew. I always knew, that’s why my relationship lasted after all the challenges.
"But there was just a day when I just knew.
“I just took more steps, that’s when I planned proposal, and all that stuff.
“It just hit me. Parang, 'Is that God working?'"
Bukod sa pagmamahal sa asawa, buong-buo rin daw ang tiwala niya kay Sarah.
“I love her because I feel, like, love, of course…
“But trust is very, very important in a relationship. You must have that trust.
“It’s the first time I really trust wholeheartedly in everything, ‘no.
“Aside from love, trust.”
MATTEO ON MARRIED LIFE: “IT HASN’T BEEN PERFECT.”
Consistent si Matteo sa pagsasabing “best chapter of one’s life” ang buhay may-asawa.
Pero inamin niyang hindi perpekto ang pagsasama nila ni Sarah dahil mayroon ding mga hamon sa kanilang pagsasama.
Saad niya, “I’m saying right now, I’m being totally honest, it hasn’t been perfect.
“The ride hasn’t been perfect. There are bumps everywhere.
“But I think anything good comes with challenges.
"So, at the end of the day, we’re very blessed.”
Malaking pasasalamat din ni Matteo na mayroon silang counselors na malalapitan kapag nangangailangan sila ng payo.
“I’m very lucky the community we build, Sarah and I.
"Sila Pastor Paolo Punzalan, they were there, guiding us, and giving us wisdom.”
Si Pastor Paolo, kapatid ng aktres na si Princess Punzalan, ang siya ring nagkasal noon kina Sarah at Matteo.
“And I have another priest, who is very, very close to me… Father Manny.”
Nagpakatotoo rin si Matteo sa pagsasabing may mga oras na nagkakaroon sila ng pagtatalo ni Sarah.
“We seek help always. We give phone calls and ask for advice because there are times when it’s difficult…” pag-amin niya.
“At the end of the day, we just have to take a moment and just pray.
“Like, sometimes, I’ll give you an example, when you have an argument and you just stop and just, ‘Lord, please give me patience.’ Hahaha!”
Lahad pa ni Matteo, kahit kasal na sila ni Sarah, may usapan daw silang tutuparin ang kani-kanilang mga pangarap.
LITTLE SARAHS AND LITTLE MATTEOS
Tinanong ang aktor kung paano niya nakikita ang pagsasama nila ni Sarah pagkalipas ng lima hanggang sampung taon.
Sagot ni Matteo: “Sana have kids already, ‘no. Little Sarahs and little Matteos running around, hopefully that...
“I have a lot of dreams together, for each other, individually, and as a couple.
“It’s very nice because I was talking to Pastor Paolo and telling [me] when two people combine, they synergize and become better individuals together.
“So I’m very excited what Sarah and I can do together, to synergize as individuals, and reach our dreams, and accomplish dreams for the future.”
Gusto raw matutunan ngayon ni Matteo ang regular na magbasa ng Bibliya, gaya ni Sarah.
“Every night, we will pray together before going to bed.
“Actually, while I’m working now, she’s in the Bible, reading the Bible every morning.
“I have to learn how to do that, be like her.
“But she’s steps ahead of me in that aspect,” nangingiting lahad ni Matteo.
Kinumpirma ni Matteo ang engagement nila ni Sarah noong November 7, 2019.
Pero ibinuko ng nakababatang kapatid ni Matteo na si Paolo Guidicelli na isang taon nang engaged ang dalawa nang ianunsiyo ito ng aktor.
Ang secret wedding nina Matteo at Sarah ay nangyari noong February 20, 2020.
