What Ai Ai De Las Alas And Husband Jed Salang Should Do To Save Their Marriage

WHY ARE we not surprised about reports that Ai Ai de las Alas and car executive Jed Alvin Salang, who she married in Las Vegas just a month ago on April 3, have separated?

We remember that just before Ai Ai’s concert with Korean singer Psy a few months ago, she said she’s so happy with Jed and she wished other people would just be happy for that instead of saying negative like “di naman magtatagal yan.”

Right after the concert, we learned that Ai Ai flew to the U.S. because she had a fight with Jed, who then tried to woo her back. They patched things up and hurriedly get married. We’ve seen many couple who did this impulsive decision only regret it later on. Our advice for such couples is to don’t rush things and get a good marriage preparation program like the Discovery Weekend where they can discover how prepared they are for the sacrament of marriage and what are the chances of their staying together for a lifetime. Simply because there’s no such thing as living happily ever after marriage automatically.

Here’s hoping Ai Ai and Jed can still iron things out between them and reconcile. And if they do, our recommendation is for them to enrol in a good marriage mentoring or enhancement program that will help them work on their marriage successfully. Theirs is particularly hard because of the age gap since Ai Ai is 48 and Jed is only a few years older than the eldest son of Ai Ai.
