Despite his often harsh criticism on the guilty parties on his shows, broadcast journalist Raffy Tulfo really does try his best help couples patch things up and work their marriages out in his show. However, he heard an especially difficult marital problem case recently, wherein he almost didn’t want the couple to get back together.
See, it started with the man admitting it was him who sent his wife away and asked her to leave their home. Now, though, he changed his mind and is seeking Raffy Tulfo’s help in asking for his wife back. It seems he really got everyone’s sympathy at first — even Raffy’s — until the woman weighed in on the conversation.
See, the husband first complained about his OFW wife failing to deliver on her promise to give him an amplifier, or its worth in cash (P60,000). He says it is for their family business. He also said his wife would leave the house and be gone for hours on end without telling him.
Then her wife hit back, saying she’s been slaving off as a domestic helper in Hong Kong. When she returned to the country, it seemed all his husband cared for was his amplifier.
She explained to Raffy Tulfo how she preferred to allocate the money for their family’s daily needs (the couple has four children) instead of investing it in his husband’s non-lucrative business. She was obviously hurt when the man asked for the amplifier as soon as she got home, instead of spending quality time with her first.
She also complained about a Facebook post where her husband claimed she had already died in Hong Kong. Raffy Tulfo got exasperated and told the man:
“Pupunta punta ka rito, ikaw naman pala ‘tong dapat ireklamo.”
Then the wife dropped another bomb: “Isinangla mo ‘yung lupa na binili natin para lang makakuha ka niyang amplifier mo.”
Despite receiving his wife’s, Raffy’s, and netizens’ wrath – the man still believed there was a chance to redeem their marriage. Live on the show, he got down on his knees and begged for his wife back.
Here’s what some netizens had to say about this issue:
When she still wouldn’t heed his calls, Raffy simply suggested marriage counseling but not without telling the man off for his blunders.
“Adik ka sa amplifier, dapat amplifier na lang ang pinakasalan mo,” he told the man at some point.
