Actor Robin Padilla candidly told the press how he wants to take former flame and current leading lady Vina Morales to be his second wife; something the ‘Bad Boy’ is actually allowed to do because he converted to Islam several years ago.
According to a report on LionHear TV, the two were promoting their movie, Bonifacio: Ang Unang Pangulo, when the question popped up.
What about Mariel?
Now, if ever he had plans on marrying Vina, how would his first wife Mariel Rodriguez react?
According to Robin, when she agreed to marry him, Mariel knew what she had gotten herself in; that he is a Muslim and is allowed to take as many as four wives, as long as his capacity allows.
As a famous actor, it is clear Robin has enough money for a large family. In fact, technically, Mariel is not his ‘first’ family because she is not his ‘first’ wife. He was married to Liezl Sicangco; although they later divorced.
According to the Wikipedia, Robin has 4 children with Liezl but none with Mariel.
Despite Mariel’s knowledge of Robin’s ability to take on more wives and his own admission that he wants to marry Vina, he admitted the answer still lies on his ex-flame.
Wedding bells soon?
So, did Vina accept the ‘marriage proposal’?
The actress laughed off Robin’s statement, teasing him that she thought he already changed his womanizing ways. She advised him to keep staying as a ‘good’ guy and admitted how she would surely find it hard to live in a marriage where there are two wives.
Robin assured her that as a Muslim, this should not be a problem but Vina insisted having two wives would complicate things and would surely be the start of trouble. Thus, she would rather not accept the ‘marriage proposal’.
A better relationship
Vina also explained how the two of them had a bad ending to their previous relationship; though Robin has asked forgiveness about his past actions when they had a quiet moment together while shooting the movie.
She said she readily gave her forgiveness, especially because the incident happened in the past.
The Lionhear TV report also narrated that Vina said she enjoys their new closeness but insists this would not lead to a marriage, especially with her as the second wife.
