Richard Poon Defends His Marriage With Maricar Reyes

Richard Poon defends wife Maricar Reyes from those who criticize her because of her shady and controversial past. He said that although he wasn't a commitment type of guy, he found out early on that he wants to keep Maricar forever.

The two were wed on June 9 at the Bellevue Hotel in Muntinlupa, Alabang. At a very young age, he was taught that a girl deserves a guy who has plans for the future. Richard knows this and when he met Maricar, he was also at the right phase in his life.

But of course, it took him a while to understand these feelings, so he took a step back in 2009. By 2010 to 2012, he and Maricar became good friends. That same year (2009), the scandal between Maricar and her ex-boyfriend Hayden Kho came out. This wasn't the reason, however, why Richard decided to take a step back.

It was a bad year for the actress, the crooner admitted, but he was able also to make sure of how he felt before he took on a lifelong commitment. After that, he asked himself if he can accept Maricar or he was just being a knight in shining armor?

He also asked Maricar if she can accept his weaknesses because he is not as clean as people make him out to be. In those years that they were together, the couple was able to sort out their feelings and understand their shortcomings.

Richard said there are still people who would always remind her about Maricar's past. Nasty people in Facebook, he said, who would send her videos of the sex scandal. But the singer said he needs to practice self-preservation and not fight back when such videos are posted.

During the 5th Star Awards for Music, Hayden was one of the presentors. Asked what would be his reaction if they bumped into each other, Richard said he would probably give him the respect he deserves. He can greet him "hi" and "hello" but he would not dream to be closer.

"I think eveybody deserves respect."

Even Maricar is very respectful of Hayden and Vicky Belo whenever they see each other. Vicky is Hayden's girlfriend when the sex scandal broke out.

Richard shared Maricar bumped into Hayden after the 2009 leak of their videos. He is not perfect too, the singer said, so he also needs to forgive those who have wronged him or even Maricar in the past.

The best thing to do about it is to just forgive the person. But Richard clarified there is no need to talk about the Maricar-Hayden issues.

Many refer to Richard as a knight in shining armor because he married Maricar even though she has a dim past. But Richard said everyone has a dark past and they all deserve a second chance.

"Everybody has a bad past. Ako, ayoko namang gawin sa akin yun. So, everybody deserves a space of respect."

There will come a time that they will fight about certain things but what's important is they always respect each other, the singer maintained.

Richard also has some mistakes in the past that he did. And if people knew about it, they would say that Maricar is the one who's accepting more than just a dim past.

"But when we marry, we did not marry just for the heck of it. We married 'coz good and bad, tatanggapin mo."

There are two things that keep their marriage strong: one, their faith in God; and two, the happy couples they surround themselves with. The truth is, Richard prefers to have happy people around them, so they can be more positive with their relationship as well.

Although it is hard to accept the mistakes of people, Richard said he is willing to do everything for Maricar.
