Dingdong and Marian: the role model celebrity Couple
Dingdong Dantes and Marian Rivera may be Philippine showbiz’s most in-demand stars. The power couple is everywhere, and it is hard to imagine how they manage to find time to fit in continuous film and TV shootings, multiple product endorsements and even charity works in their jam-packed schedules.
The two stars show that dedication leads to a prosperous life. Yet there is one more reason to cheer for the two hardworking stars: they make us believe that love is possible even in the most impossible circumstances.
Dingdong and Marian, called ‘DongYan’ by their fans, may live very hectic lives. But they still manage to fit in quality time together. At a time when showbiz couples are seeing their relationships being sacrificed and destroyed by their public lives, Dingdong and Marian are proving to be a wonderful exemption. This Holy Week, the pair is in Japan spending a private romantic getaway.

In an interview with Philippine Entertainment Portal days before Holy Week, Marian revealed it was Dingdong who convinced her to take a vacation away from Manila. She said ‘Siguro naawa siya sa akin na, “Hay naku, kailangan mong mag-rest, dire-diretso ang trabaho mo. Pagod ka.”
‘Ako naman, “Hay, sige…”’ And just like that, they decided to go to Japan. She added that her boyfriend was fond of planning things ‘on the spot.’
Their trip to Japan is the first in a long while the couple will be spending lots of free time together, something they truly deserve. Marian confessed they had very few chances to meet lately because Dingdong had been busy with the teleserye ‘Ang Dalawang Mrs. Real’ and the film ‘Kubot: The Aswang Chronicle.’ Marian is also focusing much of her energy on her hit teleserye ‘Carmela.’
However, when a window of opportunity opens, the couple will do what it takes to be with the other:

Despite already being in a relationship for almost five years, it’s inspiring to see that they are still very much in love. This is especially fantastic if we consider how much time they already pour into their professional lives. This makes them true role models for how relationships should be.
Perhaps their strength as a couple is a signal that they are truly meant for each other. What do you think? Share your thoughts below!
