In a Philippine Daily Inquirer article, the couple shared how they made their marriage last for 25 years.

“It takes two people in every relationship,” said Prieto-Valdes. 

“It might seem that he’s the one making sure the relationship lasts, but I do my share, too. It’s really a constant balance. You’ve got to keep working at it,” she added.

Valdes, for his part, said: “We give each other the space to do what we need to be doing, then we go back to the home where we’re both very grounded.”
