A lot of public figures find it hard to cultivate deep, meaningful relationships. It comes to a point when fans and netizens sometimes anticipate the break up and divorce part when celebrities decide to get married. Couples like Mark Lapid and Tanya Garcia, however, prove it is not impossible for public figure-couples to stand the test of time.
See, Mark Lapid and his wife (ex-girlfriend, as he fondly calls her), have been together for a total of 10 years already. They may have a lot of differences in principle and upbringing, but they surely have found a home in each other’s arms.
The celebrity couple first met in 2006, in the set of the film Batas Militar, where they first played a couple onscreen. It was not love at first sight, no. This kind of love story has a slow-burn feel to it, probably because they were both in relationships when they first met. However, Mark Lapid admitted he was smitten at first sight by Tanya’s beauty and grace.
It wasn’t until their respective relationships fell through that the two started dating, and that’s when they fell deeply in love.
On July 30, 2010, the celebrity couple tied the knot. in a civil rites ceremony held in Porac, Pampanga. Their marriage was blessed with three lovely daughters: Micsha Amidala, Matilda Anika, and Madeleine Ariana. While the public questioned why the two haven’t had a church wedding yet, Tanya remains firm that she doesn’t want it yet, despite Mark proposing it more than once already.
According to Tanya, a Church wedding is no longer something that excites her, as their priority is now focused on their children, and the nurturing of their loving family. It seems they have a beautiful, happy one, as can be seen in their photos frequently spending quality time together.
Stay happy and in love, Mark and Tanya!
