A love of a lifetime. The connection of Albert Martinez and his late wife Liezl Martinez is straight out of a romance film, and it’s apparent in the way he still talks about her seven years after her passing.

In an interview with Dr. Vicki Belo, the 60-year-old actor, who is still considered a dashing leading man at his age to the likes of Kylie Versoza and Yen Santos, was asked about his love life. He answers that he’s not dating anyone, and he spends the majority of his free time bonding with his children and their families. “I don’t have any [love life]. I’m just enjoying my time with my kids and my apos. ‘Cause all these years, I’ve been working hard. I missed so many special moments with my kids. So now, bumabawi ako sa kanila. I spend time with them. I cook for them every weekend.”

Of course, admiration for other girls is there, but he doesn’t pursue any romantic relationship. “Parang I’m not ready yet. Liezl’s shoes are very hard to fill. She’s the kindest, smartest person I’ve ever met,” he describes his late wife. “She took good care of me. I believe it’s the deep love that’s involved. I don’t know if you believe in soulmates, but I think she’s my soulmate.”

In an interview following her death, Albert expressed his grief over his wife's loss. “I don’t know how I can recover from this. It’s something so painful that I cannot describe — the longing, the loneliness. We spent 29 years together and survived all the trials and struggles. I don’t know how life will ever be without Liezl.”
