Jennica Garcia discusses self-love, broken marriage in open letter to fellow parents
Jennica Garcia shared her take on self-love and fixing marital problems in an open letter to fellow parents, which comes amid breakup rumors with husband Alwyn Uytingco.
Garcia acknowledged that many married couples “are going through so much this pandemic” and noted that it has become “so easy for Satan to whisper lies to your very soul” as she shared her open letter on Instagram earlier today, April 24.
“Dear Parents, [self-love] is not selfish. It only becomes selfish when you love yourself too much to the extent that your family becomes broken because of it,” she said.
“If you are going through something in your marriage but both of you are helping each other to keep the marriage intact, all praises to God! However, if only the husband or the wife is trying to fix what is now broken and your spouse already let go of you to start a journey that is all about them (me, myself and I) A journey without your family in it… Cling to God and do not beg further for your [spouse’s] affection when you already tried getting them back many times,” she added.

“This is a bitter pill to swallow but truth is, there is nothing you can do to change your spouse heart,” Jennica also stressed.
She noted that this is “something only Jesus can do and you are not God” and that it will be difficult, but reminded fellow parents that they are “never alone in Christ.”
“The desire for companionship will be so strong during moments of loneliness but take courage in the fact that the Lord knows your story from start to finish,” Jennica explained.
“There are marriages that make it till their last breath, then there are those who end up parting ways for good. Which one among the two, will you end up in? Only God knows,” she added.
She went on to remind parents to strengthen their faith in God, and stressed that “whether your family is restored or otherwise, there is no better life than the life God has planned for you.”
Fans first speculated in late March that Garcia had broken up with Uytingco after she asked fans for help in changing her Instagram name and username, “Jennica Garcia Uytingco” and “@jennicauytingco,” respectively.
While she still uses her husband’s surname on Instagram as of this writing, some of her fans pointed out that she has started using her maiden name again on Facebook.
Garcia’s open letter to her daughters earlier this month, in which she talked about her “heartaches,” further fueled speculations. Despite these, Garcia has not confirmed or specifically disclosed that she is no longer with Uytingco.
Garcia and Uytingco tied the knot back in 2014 after four years of being in a relationship. They have two daughters together, namely Athena and Severina. /ra
