Times have changed. Over a third of Filipinos, aged 15 to 24, have engaged in premarital sex (PMS) and a majority of them do not use protection, according to a data collated by the Philippine Statistics Authority (PSA) in 2013.
Gone are the days when women stayed ‘pure’ until they marry.
Toni Gonzaga posted a blog recently titled “WHY IT PAYS TO WAIT,” where she talked about her experience in a conservative household. Whenever she asks for permission, she expects disapproval. Even though she was envious of couples who were allowed by their parents to take trips with their boyfriends, she remained obedient hoping one day she’ll experience it too.
She also said in her Vlog how grateful she was with her husband, Paul Soriano. She quoted, “Nakakabilib din naman si Paul, kasi for eight years, never niyang sinabi sa’kin na, ‘mag-rebelde ka na, gawin mo na ‘yung gusto mo, may pera ka na.’
“I realized that your obedience and sacrifice will always be rewarded in the end. Medyo matagal-tagal ang hinintay ko para ma-experience ko ‘to. Pero it was all worth it. Kaya pala ako pinaghintay nang matagal, kasi may magandang nakalaan. Kung siguro pinilit ko pumunta dito noon, it would’ve cost me hundreds and thousands of pesos, and it would’ve cost me my relationship with my parents. But because I waited for God’s perfect time, it cost me nothing.”
Like Toni Gonzaga, Yeng Constantino and her husband Yan Asuncion also vowed to wait until marriage before having sex.
Now married to Yan Asuncion, they are both their partner’s first official relationship. The two vowed not to have sex until marriage — a topic brought up by TV host Kris Aquino during an interview. They finally got married in 2015.
Nikki Gil always has a strong personal conviction and value for sex and marriage, even if so many people made fun of her decision.
Many believe this was the reason for her controversial breakup with Billy Crawford. Nikki is now happily married to businessman BJ Albert, and both are blessed with a healthy baby boy, Finn.
Janine Tugonon, the beauty and brains titlist, winning Miss Universe 2012 as first-runner up, made a statement: “This is my principle… marriage is sacred.”
Her message is an inspiration to young Filipinas who value purity before marriage.
Another inspiration to the Filipino women is beauty queen Miriam Quiambao, who made a “purity pledge” with her non-showbiz fiance, the Christian motivational speaker and author Roberto “Ardy” Roberto.
She posted a photo of their “purity pledge” on her Instagram in October 2013.
“Let it be known that I, Ardy Roberto, aka Mr. Pogi, and I, Miriam Quiambao, aka Ms. U, vow before God to protect each other’s purity from this day onwards until the day, by God’s grace, that we are wed. Therefore, we shall not engage in any act that shall ignite sexual desires or passions prematurely, such as passionate kissing (lips-to-lips), pheromone sniffing, or foreplay. The only expressions of affection allowed are: kissing on the cheek, holding hands and hugging or “akbay.” I, Ardy Roberto, promise to take the lead in this purity pledge and protect you, Miriam Quiambao, and your testimony. So help us God! In Jesus’ name, Amen!”
Toni Gonzaga opened about her personal life through her latest blog where she interviewed, her beloved father “Bonoy” who was celebrating his birthday last Tuesday.
In her blog, she was asking a series of questions that started with “WHY” and which she wanted to ask her father when he was still her driver. Her questions were more about parenting; which molded her as an individual, and now as a parent herself.
Toni’s First question was, “Why is belt your weapon of choice to discipline our bad behavior?” and her father replied, “Kasi yun ang pinaka hindi masakit” – remembering a time that his own father would let him pick a branch of a guava tree and use it, which was much more painful.
And she was wondering why her father would be watering the plants in their backyard at three in the morning. She asked his real purpose for doing it: Was it really to water the plants or ascertain who wanted to leave the house without permission? His father explained that it was either he hasn’t slept yet or just woke up but which can also be a ruse.
A follow-up question was immediately raised, asking him why he has this habit of randomly checking their rooms in the middle of the night.
“It is a part of parenting which you will experience now as a parent. You will always be thinking of your child 24 hours a day, even when you’re asleep,” she strongly agrees with what her father said.
“Children are a gift from God and you should protect and teach them, not in your own way but His way,” were her father’s words of wisdom.
Toni also mentioned that they haven’t experienced any sleepovers and asked her father why they were not allowed to before. Her father, being a traditional-minded parent, answered, “Ganun din ang nanay at tatay ko noon – especially that both of you are girls.”
He further explained, “If I allowed you to go on sleepovers, you will only use that as an alibi every time you cannot go home, which we do not like as parents.”
This led to her next question, “Why don’t you want us to have a boyfriend during our teenage years?”
“It is because we don’t want you to regret unfavorable outcomes. When you are a teenager, you just get what you want without thinking thoroughly about consequences. But now that you’re mature enough, you start to think first before deciding on what you want to do in anything; even with choosing for a man in your life.”
Toni’s father does not believe that Romeo and Juliet is considered by many as the greatest love story because he would always say that “Kalokohan ang love story ni Romeo and Juliet.” The greatest love story for him is the “love of God for us, because Jesus died offering his life for our salvation.”
As he related it in a real life situation, he cited an example saying, “If your husband, wife, or your children are in danger, you would offer your life to save your love ones and it can’t be considered as suicide, like what Romeo and Juliet did.”
Being his daughters, they were not allowed to answer back but were allowed to reason out. Her father’s advice in being a parent was, “Don’t ever say na nag-away kami ng anak ko” but instead say, “Pinagalitan kayo ng nanay at tatay niyo kasi nangatwiran lang kayo.”
Her parent’s basis in their parenting style is the Holy Bible. That is why he doesn’t read any parenting books.
Toni’s last request to her father was to give comments on her suitors and why he doesn’t like them; which led to her last question, “Bakit hindi mo pinapansin si Paul? Bakit hindi ka mabait sa kanya noong mag-boyfriend pa lang kami?”
His answer was that he wanted Paul to realize that there is someone protecting her. just like any father would do to their daughters.
At the end of her video, she expressed her appreciation to her father despite being strict. Although, it broke her heart in the past, it was actually her father who was always protecting her.
“I’m so happy that we have reached this level of relationship na parang barkada. I can talk to him about everything. Kasi dati, lagi akong takot sa kanya kasi disciplinarian siya. Pero I realized, the pain of discipline is better than the pain of regret. The man, who I thought broke my heart before, was actually the one who saved my heart from being broken so many times,” concluded Toni Gonzaga.
Actress and television personality Toni Gonzaga has recently guested in Tonight with Boy Abunda wherein she answered questions about her life and marriage.
When Gonzaga was asked of the one thing she deserves in life, she said that she deserves to have a complete family as she worked hard and she has tried her hardest to be someone good.
“I feel like I deserve a complete family that I have right now. Because I worked so hard all my life, I tried to be a good person. Feeling ko parang ‘yun naman ‘yung deserve ko in life.”
She said that when she got married, she’s going to make sure that her family will be complete as her son grows up.
“Kapag nag-asawa ako hanggang sa lumaki ang mga anak ko, buo ang pamilya. Na hindi broken ‘yung marriage, hindi broken ‘yung home. Na lumaki si Seve na buo ‘yung pamilya niya.”
Gonzaga also shared the experience of having parents who tried their best to stay together.
“Because I grew up witnessing that. My parents fought hard to be together. So I feel like Seve deserves that.”
She also shared how they managed to stay faithful to each other.
“It’s so easy to be faithful. There’s no reason for me to look the other way. Hindi ako nagsasalita ng period kasi baka dumating ang point na i-test kami ni God, na ayaw ko na dumating ‘yung point na ‘yon. Pero ngayon there’s no way for me to look the other way. Kasi I’m so occupied with Seve, I’m so occupied in building our family. And there’s so many dreams that we’re building together na ayaw kong masira.”
Gonzaga also confirmed that Paul Soriano has been faithful to her.

The Ultimate Multimedia Star recalled her Eat Bulaga moments. She hosted the noontime variety show for three years before moving to its rival Network.

Along with her sister Alex, together they read a harsh comment thrown at the younger Gonzaga and emphasized on the latter’s hosting skills.
