In a candid and heartfelt revelation, renowned actor Allen Dizon opened up about a challenging chapter in his marriage during a recent interview on Fast Talk with Boy Abunda.
The acclaimed actor disclosed that he had once made a regrettable mistake in his relationship with his wife, Crystle Dizon.
Allen shared with the veteran TV host, Boy Abunda, that Crystle had been the woman of his dreams since their high school days. He emotionally expressed, “Ako kasi Tito Boy ‘yung girlfriend ko, ‘yung wife ko, high school pa lang kami parang siya na ‘yung gusto kong mapangasawa. Siya na ‘yung gusto kong makasama habang-buhay.”
Despite entering the world of showbiz, Allen continued his relationship with Crystle, emphasizing that he had chosen her as his life partner. He added, “So noong nag-showbiz ako, kami na. So kahit na nagkakaroon ako ng mga gusto kong ligawan pero alam mo ‘yun meron nang laman sa puso ko kung baga ito na ‘yung papakasalan ko.”
Boy Abunda probed further, asking if they had never experienced separations or arguments. Allen admitted honestly, “Nag-away kami.”
He went on to share, “Kasi siyempre marami rin tayong pagkakamali pero in-admit ko naman ‘yung pagkakamali ko sa kaniya at never pumasok sa isip ko na makipaghiwalay dahil mahal ko ‘to at kailangan kong kung baga bawiin ko ‘yung mga pagkakamali ko. Besides, may mga anak kami so ayokong maging broken family.”
Boy asked if there were times when he felt lost in the context of their relationship after entering showbiz. Allen confessed that he had indeed lost his way at one point but made a determined effort to save their marriage.
“Oo naligaw din ako pero hindi ako pinanghinaan ng loob and ‘yung temptation na-control ko and kailangan kong i-save ‘yung relationship namin dahil walang makaka-save nito kung ‘di ako at siya rin,” Allen said.
The actor’s honesty and vulnerability resonated with many, garnering admiration from his fans and colleagues alike. Allen’s story serves as a reminder that even those in the public eye face challenges in their personal lives.
