In a highly conservative country like the Philippines, having a baby outside of marriage is considered a sin, immoral, and shameful. That is why a lot of netizens condemned Joshua Garcia’s stand about family and marriage.
In a recent interview at TFC Kapamilya Live, the “Ngayon at Kailanman” confessed that he wants to have a baby first before marrying the woman whom he would want to spend the rest of his life with.
“Actually ano 27 gusto kong magka-anak tapos 30 plus gusto ko magpakasal.”
When asked why he wants to delay marriage, Joshua stressed that this is now a usual concept in the province.
“Ganon talaga ‘pag probinsya. Kasi hindi mo kasi masasabi kasi bigla na lang kasi siyang nabubuo ‘yung mga babies. Hindi mo masasabi kung kailan siya mabubuo eh.”
Nevertheless, Joshua stated that he needs to have a stable job first before having a baby.
“Pero mas maganda na kapag nag-baby ka, may trabaho ka na regular tsaka nakaipon ka na. May business ka na, may bahay ka na, kumbaga kompleto na.”
In an interview at “Tonight with Boy Abunda” last month, Joshua candidly admitted that he would want to marry his girlfriend Julia Barretto after 10 years after he has established himself. We all can recall that back in March, that the couple encountered a problem in their relationship, which threatened to break them apart. However, despite everything that happened, they managed to talk things through and remain together.
Likewise, the young actor also opened up that he doesn’t want his future children to experience the hardships that he has gone through in the past. He recounted that when he was in high school, he would often keep his PHP 10 daily allowance just to buy a gift for his ex-girlfriends.
“Kapag monthsary na, bibili na ako sa mall ng silver na kwintas at pendant para may pang regalo na.”
