  1. Brix Ferraris and amy Perez

Their relationship taught us a lesson – for a relationship to really work, both parties should work; there must be fair and equal treatments, and that love is a two-way street. Both should give and exert effort to make the relationship strong. Brix and Amy’s story is a heartbreaking one, because nobody thought that it would be cut short just like that. The two got married on 1995, and has gave birth to a son in 1997. It was sailing smoothly but Briz just left Amy when their son turned 10-months old. It was painful, up to the point that Amy even begged him to stay. But despite all the efforts, Brix still decided to leave. In 2000, Amy finally had the courage to file an annulment. It was only in 2014 that the grant was given.
