Many women of all ages say that Ian Veneracion is one of the finest of the male species they have ever laid eyes on.
Unfortunately, for the hoard of screaming ladies trailing behind Ian, he is already married and has three children. In fact, the Kapamilya star and his wife Pam have already been married for around 20 years and their relationship is growing stronger by the minute. Therefore, the rest of us are left wondering what their secret is to a happy marriage and why Ian refuses to cheat on his wife despite all the gorgeous leading ladies he has been paired up with in his projects?
Last year, rumors about Ian and Pam's split spread online. According to reports, FHM Sexiest Woman of 2016 Jessy Mendiola was the reason for their split. However, the celebrity and his wife just laughed off the issue and told the media that they have no plans on separating anytime soon.
Fast forward to 2017 and true enough, the couple's relationship remains steadfast. Ian himself reveals that Pam is actually not the jealous type which is why she will never snap even if he has love scenes with certain female celebrities. He said in an interview with PEP:
"Hindi siya selosa ever since, and kung magseselos man, hindi niya ipapakita sa akin. She’s too proud para ipakita sa akin and I love her for that."
"Hindi siya yung magtatanong, 'Where are you?’"
Sometimes, Ian said he would even ask her, "Hindi ka ba magtatanong kung anong oras akong uuwi?"But she won't. Never. Ako yung kinakabahan pag tahimik lang…Mas nakakatakot yung ganun e na hindi magtatanong."
However, Ian doesn't deny the fact that he sometimes gets tempted whenever he is surrounded by beautiful women. He admitted and said:
"Siyempre, kasama na rin siguro sa showbiz, nandiyan yung temptation. Ang dami nating kasamang magagandang women."
Still, the actor says that he is already "immune" to girls. According to him, his head is still here on earth and would never even attempt to show interest on a woman apart from his wife.
"So far, okay pa naman ako. Pero of course, I’ve been working on it. E, tao rin naman tayo. So far, okay pa naman... okay pa, still in a good place."
But the real reason probably why Ian refuses to cheat on Pam is because of budget restrictions. The celebrity told reporters that Pam is the one who manages their finances.
"Wala akong budget ng kabit. Saka sa akin, gusto ko she manages my finances. Kasi kung hindi ko iyan paiikutin, wala, parang baldeng butas yun. Hindi ako businessman, it’s her business. I’m happy. She’s really good at it."
In the past, he was also interviewed by ABS-CBN where he opened up about his relationship with Pam. The "A Love to Last" star said that marrying his wife was the best decision he ever made even though they tied the knot at a very young age. He shared:
"I’m 42 now. She’s literally like a part of me. So mas kilala ko ang sarili ko na nandoon siya as part of my life, kaysa sa wala siya."
