Maja Salvador has recently opened up about her decision to rekindle her romance with businessman Rambo Nuñez, citing his family as one of the main reasons for giving their relationship another chance. In an interview with Boy Abunda on the talk show “Fast Talk with Boy Abunda,” which aired on May 22, Salvador expressed how Nuñez’s mother had made her feel like a part of their family from the beginning.
Reflecting on their previous relationship, Salvador revealed that she and Nuñez had been together for four months when they decided to break up. However, during that time, she realized that in a relationship, it is not just the partner that matters but also their family. Nuñez’s mother, Mom Marilen, had made her feel like she was one of her own, creating a deep sense of belonging. This strong familial connection was something Salvador cherished.
When Salvador and Nuñez eventually got back together, Mom Marilen was unaware that they had been communicating again. During an interview, she mentioned to Nuñez, not knowing about their renewed contact, “Why not her again?” This incident made Salvador realize the significant role Nuñez’s family played in their relationship. Their first date after reconciling was truly meaningful for Salvador, as it highlighted the importance of having a supportive and loving family.
Salvador also disclosed that when they first got together, she had to make sacrifices for her own family and career. However, Nuñez was sure about his commitment to her, even expressing to Salvador’s mother that he would support her financially and encourage her to pursue her dreams outside of showbiz if he had the means to do so.
Reflecting on her past experiences, Salvador emphasized that she felt equipped to handle the challenges that come with a relationship. However, this new chapter with Nuñez feels entirely different and presents new experiences for both of them. It represents a second chance for them to build a forever together, and Salvador is excited about embarking on this journey with him.
In April 2022, Salvador confirmed her engagement to Nuñez and shared her plans to temporarily step away from acting to focus on wedding preparations. Recognizing the toll that demanding roles can take on her physical and emotional well-being, she decided to take a break from films and teleseryes to ensure she looks her best on her wedding day.
Salvador expressed her desire for a lighter workload, aiming to avoid projects that require intense drama or action that could leave her looking exhausted and drained. This break will allow her to fully immerse herself in the joy and excitement of planning her wedding, ensuring that she radiates happiness on her special day.
As Salvador and Nuñez prepare to exchange vows in July, they are both looking forward to this new phase of their lives together. The love and support from Nuñez’s family have played a significant role in Salvador’s decision to rekindle their romance, and she is eager to build a future with him, armed with the lessons learned from their previous relationship and newfound appreciation for the importance of family.
