I’m re-reading this interview by Jessica Zafra with Senator Mar Roxas when he was still Trade Secretary. It’s one of the interesting articles comprising The Flip Reader (I got my copy from Powerbooks when I was vacationing last December; it’s a very good read). On page 126, it says:
Mar Roxas is at Segafredo Cafe in Greenbelt. The shoot is done, and we are sitting down to pasta and pizza. He’s on the phone with the ex-girlfriend who lives on our street. He says he’s friends with all his former girlfriends. “Come and join us. What are you doing? Ghost? You’re sitting at home on a Saturday night, watching Ghost? Come out, we’re having dinner.” She passes on the invitation. He puts away the cell phone and turns his attention to the spaghetti.
“If you marry,” I point out, “Everyone will conclude that it’s for political reasons.”
He shrugs. “Maybe I won’t marry at all.” Through the glass walls he observes the people walking past the restaurant. “Look at that. Young love. Walking hand in hand on a Saturday night. Don’t they know it’ll end badly?” Then the Philippines’ most eligible bachelor laughs. He waves to the waiter and orders dessert.
Now, guess what? Senator Mar Roxas and Korina Sanchez are getting married before 2009 is over.

I just hope they’re getting married for the right reasons.
they’ve been together for 5 years already. i think it’s quite normal for couples to be married after 5 years. i must agree though, getting married now seemed convenient. and if Mar is using Korina, i think Korina can also use him. haha. (btw, I like Korina.)
they probably deserve each other—i mean it in a good way (hehehe). they’re both at a ripe age. the political side of their relationship would always hound them just like sharon & kiko, but i guess, they’re old enough to handle those. kung di magiging presidente si mar roxas, s’ya malamang ang susunod na LTFRB chief…magaling pala s’ya mag-pedicab.:D

Looks like Mr. Roxas is the ultimate mac 🙂 Good that he took a bit of time to decide on getting hitched ! celebs normally find it tough to stay put with one person 😉

In my opinion, definitely a politically motivated marriage. It earned him a lot of publicity eh. Balita ko kase binusted sya ni Ai-Ai. Kaya kay Corina na lang sya.
