  • Jennica Garcia pens a letter tackling the importance of self-love and putting God at the center of marriage.

    This is the second letter she put out since the rumors about her split with husband Alwyn Uytingco surfaced. The first letter was addressed to her daughters.

    This time, she dedicates it to parents who are experiencing marital woes.

    Uploading a photo of herself with daughter Mori on April 24, 2021, she writes, "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.

    "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!"

    But to those who tried to address their problems and still failed, the daughter of Jean Garcia advises to leave it to God.

    She continues, "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 affection when you already tried getting them back many times.

    "This is a bitter pill to swallow but truth is, there is nothing you can do to change your spouse heart. That is something only Jesus can do and you are not God.

    Toward the end of her post, Jennica stresses the importance of staying strong whatever happens to the marriage.

    "It is going to be very hard but know that you 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.

    "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.

    "So hold on tight to Jesus and pray for His will and not yours to be done. WHY?

    "Because whether your family is restored or otherwise, there is no better life than the life God has planned for you."

    In March 2021, the netizens noticed that Jennica started using her maiden name, and deleted photos of her and Alwyn on her Instagram account.

    At press time, she has not directly addressed the breakup rumors.
