MANILA  (Mabuhay) — Claudine Barretto has an explanation why her marriage with Raymart Santiago didn’t work out.

For the comebacking movie actress, perhaps it just wasn’t the right time.

“Rebound kasi,” she admitted. “Huwag na nating pag-usapan kasi masakit.”

Barretto said she was still “heartbroken” when she first met Santiago.

“I was so sad. I was heartbroken. Namatayan ako tapos there was somebody who was there na parang knight in shining armor,” she said.

“Parang I played safe,” she added.

Prior to Santiago, Baretto was in a relationship with Rico Yan, who died of cardiac arrest due to acute hemorrhagic pancreatitis on March 29, 2002.

Had she met Santiago when she was already healed and whole again, Barretto said she believes their relationship could have worked.

Santiago and Barretto were married in March 2006. They have two children — an adopted daughter, Sabina and a biological son, Santino.

In 2013, Barretto claimed that she suffered “years of abuse” with Santiago.

The two, however, seem to have ironed out some of their differences such that Barretto sometimes posts photos of Santiago on her social media accounts.

Barretto explained that she and the actor have agreed to try “uncoupling” or being together when it comes to their children.

The term gained popularity when Hollywood actress Gwyneth Paltrow announced her split with husband Chris Martin.

“Para sosyal, di ba? ‘Yun ang ginagawa namin. We have to make decisions about the children as a family pa din,” Barretto told Aquino and Chiu. “Kami lang talaga ni Raymart tapos ‘yung counselor namin… I think around two, three weeks ay magta-try kaming mag-counselling for that uncoupling thing na ‘yan.”

“Here in the Philippines nakikita namin kapag parang magkahiwalay na kayo, eh magkagalit na kayo. Eh di naman dapat ganoon. … you always have a relationship for your kids,” she added.

Asked if their children also requested for it, she said: “Parang gusto din nila, parang naguguluhan na sila ‘yung away-away. Dapat hindi na talaga. Parang naisip namin, we failed as husband and wife. Let’s not fail as parents.” (MNS)
