Sunshine tells kids to respect Cesar despite All
Sunshine Cruz and Cesar Montano have come a long way from the early stages of their separation that was wrought with controversy and anger. But although the highly publicised separation has become more subdued in the media, important issues still remain.
Last year, Sunshine described Cesar as ‘very generous sa mga kids.’ But in an interview on Kris TV yesterday, Sunshine revealed that Cesar has slowly fallen short of fulfilling his responsibilities as father to their three girls Angelina Isabelle, Samantha Angelene and Angel Franchesca.
Although he has daily visitorial rights and was ordered by the court to provide financial support, Sunshine said Cesar had only visited his kids ‘tatlo o apat magmula nang nangyari ‘yung full custody sa akin last year December.’ Cesar had also neglected to pay the costs of their kids’ education and house rent.
Disappointment over Cesar and a wish to find happiness has finally forced Sunshine to file a petition for annulment, which her camp submitted last month.
Despite everything however, Sunshine remains above the heartache and stress by saying she is willing to remain friends with her estranged husband. In fact, she has asked her daughters to love and respect their father regardless of her relationship with him.
‘I always tell the kids to message him every day. Sabi ko, “‘yun lang ang order ko sa inyo.” Gusto ko na malaman niya at ma-remind siya may tatlo siyang anak sa akin.’
Her generosity seems to be falling on deaf ears, however, as she added ‘Any time ready ako makipag-friends sa kanya. Hindi ko alam bakit ayaw [niya]. Kahit magkokontak sa secretary niya, ‘di nakikipag-co-ordinate ang secretary when it comes to kids, abogado-to-abogado na lang daw.’
As separation cases go, the estranged couple and their kids will always suffer. However, if one side decides to show generosity it is only fair for the other side to return that generosity, especially if children are involved. In this regard, Sunshine Cruz shines through as a fair mother and wife.
