Rica Peralejo's marriage to Joseph Bonifacio is one of local showbiz’s most enviable relationships. According to the erstwhile TV host and actress, it has helped her marriage work so well.

“I learned that you cannot do marriage apart from God,” she said in an interview with Yahoo! Philippines OMG!.

The former “Umagang Kay Ganda” host believes sharing a common ground with a partner isn’t enough to maintain a healthy relationship.

“Two human beings are too different. You may look the same on the outside or you have a lot of common interest but that’s not enough to keep it together. You need God talaga,” Rica explained.

She’s speaking based on experience; Rica has been married to Bonifacio since January 2010.

In earlier interviews, Rica said she has no regrets giving up her showbiz career for her husband. She wants to focus on being a supportive wife.

So, obviously, Rica believes marriage--or any kind of relationship--is hard work, one that requires as much dedication as a day job or a career.

“Probably a lot of people have said that marriage is not all romance but I don’t think it’s been said enough that marriage is hard work. So the way that you would do well or excellent or passionately for a job, dapat more pa when you’re working on your marriage kasi it takes two to tango.”

Rica added: “There are many things to learn about one another. If you’re both willing to work it out, it’s going to work.”

But that doesn’t mean she does nothing else with her time other than being a wife. Rica applies what she learned as a graduate of a Creative Writing degree from the Ateneo de Manila University in her work as travel columnist for a women’s lifestyle website.

She cites South America and Africa as among the places she’d want to visit.

The best travel destination for Rica? She doesn’t have any specific place in mind, although “spiritually, emotionally, even physically, mountains are the best for me,” she explained.
