In the modern dating age where couples split and news of infidelity are everywhere, it’s refreshing to see love stories who stand the test of time—for better or worse, in sickness and in health. Case in point: Robi Domingo and Maiqui Pineda are staying strong after the latter was revealed to be diagnosed with a rare autoimmune disease.

The couple has a wedding coming soon, and they’re pushing through with it as scheduled, according to the Kapamilya actor. "We talked about it. And honestly, because of her condition, I was the one who told her baka dapat i-delay natin ng konti, kasi medyo iniisip ko na 'yung health niya. And then, siya 'yung nagsabi na 'Don't. Give me something to hope for,’ And upon hearing that, siyempre, iyak ako. 'Lalaban tayo, lalaban,’" he told ABS-CBN News in an interview.

Robi also shared the good news that his soon-to-be-wife is getting better. "Long way to go pero malayo doon sa image ko na nakikita ko sa kanya nasa hospital bed. Now she can walk properly," he said.

He also got candid about how he’s handling the difficulties that come with the situation. "Of course, ang dami kong question especially about my faith. Bakit siya? Bakit ngayon pa? Bakit sa dinamirami ng tao, bakit kami pa 'yung naapektuhan? But you have to cling on to those strands of faith. And also just looking at her and her progress, 'yun ang nagbibigay ng lakas sa akin na, ah okay lumalaban siya. ... Mas iyakin talaga ako.

"Now, we have accepted the fact that we have a working prognosis, not just in terms of her health pero how we could fix our relationship, not just with us but with the Lord,'" he shared.

Right now, Robi is doing majority of the wedding preps, taking weight off his fiancee’s shoulders. "Ako ang groomzilla ngayon. Ako ang nagha-handle ng lahat ng mga bagay kaya medyo nakaka-pressure, nakaka-stress. But it's the details that count eh na, okay kailangan ako na bahala, relax ka na diyan," he said.
