Mayroong simula; mayroong wakas, pero walang forever.
Actress Kathryn Bernardo refuses to talk about her breakup with Daniel Padilla, which became a national issue. She says “Chapter closed. I hope this finally helps all of us move forward. I won’t be entertaining questions regarding this anymore. Thank you for understanding,”
It was a breakup because she realized it was time to wake up from the nightmare.
If Kathryn was a banker, she must have lost “interest” or if a chemist, the chemistry ceased, or if he was a cross-eyed boyfriend, apparently, he was seeing someone else on the side.
And while we are discussing about breakups, let us go over decisions of the Supreme Court speaking the language of love.


“The heart has reasons of its own which reason does not know.” (Chua-Qua v. Clave, G.R. L-49549, Aug. 30, 1990) Further, “We cannot castigate a man for seeking out the partner of his dreams” (Figueroa v. Barranco, Jr., G.R. 97369, July 31, 1997) because “love is useless unless it is shared with another.”(Chi Ming Tsoi v. Court of Appeals, G.R. 119190);
“People fall out of love. There is always a possibility that human love is not forever. (Justice Marvic Leonen, dissenting opinion in Matudan v. Republic, G.R. 203284, Nov. 14, 2016);
“The question is not so much as who was aimed at but as to who was hit.”(Borjal v. Court of Appeals, G.R. 126466, Jan. 14, 1999 citing Pound in Corrigan v. Bobbs-Merrill Co., 228 N.Y. 58 (1920);
“Statistics never lie, but lovers often do, quipped a sage.”(Antonio v. Reyes, G.R. 155800, March 10, 2006);
“Individuals who are in love had the power to let love grow or let love die – it is a choice one had to face when love is not the love he/she expected.”(Padilla-Rumbaua v. Rumbaua, G.R. 166738, Aug. 14, 2009)
Last word for Kathryn comes from Milton who, when he married his wife wrote, “Paradise lost” and after they divorced wrote, “Paradise regained!” Joke!
Seriously, it was Milton who said “Better to have loved and lost, than never to have loved at all!”
Sigh.
