Denise Laurel Enjoys Long EngagementDenise Laurel enjoyed having a long engagement with boyfriend Sol Mercado. Denise said she has never really been in a rush to anything because she wants to enjoy each moment.
Compared to good friend Iya Villania and Drew Arellano, she's a novice when it comes to relationships. She expressed dismay that she wasn't able to attend their wedding in February 2014 because she was taping for "Annaliza."
She was supposed to be there, but she didn't have time because they had a very tight schedule for the series. Iya, of course, understands her because they belong to the same industry.
As regards to her relationship with Sol, Denise said it's happy and steady. They have long been engaged, but they have not set a date yet. Denise said they might wait for two years before they tie the knot.
They have no plans yet for a wedding this year.
She's very "old school," Denise said, adding that she was raised in a conservative Catholic household, so she believes in long engagement.
And she cannot just go ahead and marry Sol because she has a lot to think about too.
Although they have been together for years, Denise said that's not reason enough to rush into building a family. There are things they have to settle and talk about, so they want to take time making the family strong.
They are not living in together although they have been in a relationship for four years. Sol is very patient and understanding with her. He's even the one to tell her not to rush into marriage because he knows they're made for each other.
