Toni Gonzaga Says She And Direk Paul Soriano Do Not Need A Pre-Nup Agreement

TONI GONZAGA is happy that her movie with Coco Martin, "You're My Boss", is very well received by the public. Now that the movie is showing, she can now devote her time attending to the details of her coming wedding to Director Paul Soriano. An issue came up because some folks say Toni is definitely richer than her groom since she's earning more as an actress-TV host-singer-endorser. Due to this, isn't she thinking of having a pre-nuptial agreement with him before taking the plunge to make sure that in case their marriage fails, she can get back all her properties and her assets won't be equally divided between them as conjugal property?

"Hindi naman ako kasing yaman ng mga Zobel at Ayala para mag-isip ako na dapat, may ganun talaga," she says. "We never even talked about it. My goal in marriage is when you get into a relationship and in a lifetime commitment, you both want to be together forever and you will try your very best to make it work. For me, kapag nagpa-pre nup kasi, parang iniisip mo na kasi baka maghiwalay rin kayo in the future so kailangan, sa akin yung pera ko. Kung may pre nup, ang iniisip mong security, nasa pera mo, hindi nasa husband mo. So I'd rather put my faith in God and the person that I'm marrying and pray that our marriage will work forever."
In a recent interview, Direk Paul agreed that Toni earns more than him but adds that he's also financially well prepared to give Toni the comfortable life that she is entitled to. "Money has never been an issue with us and it will never be an issue in our relationship. The fact that I asked her to marry means I can provide for her for the rest of our life. With God at the center of our marriage, there's nothing that can go against us," he declared.

So let's not be negative anymore and just wish this young couple the best for their marital relationship to succeed. We ourselves truly admire their decision to wait until after they exchanged 'I do's' before they share the same bed. This is one way of starting their marriage the right way.
