It is normal to face problems in any marriage, but what’s not normal is when your problems affect the welfare of your children. An overseas Filipino worker mother is aware that her marriage problems are taking a toll on her kids, so she sought help from Raffy Tulfo.
Also eager to reunite the mother to her estranged children, the respected host invited the mother to his show “Raffy Tulfo in Action.”
While on air, complainant Maricel Apostol revealed that she’s fighting for the custody of her 13-year-old and 15-year-old children who are currently in the care of her husband.
Based on her accounts, Apostol insinuated that her husband was unfit to take care of the children because of his tendency to abuse alcohol. In addition to his alcoholic behavior, the drunk husband also allegedly beats his children.
To confirm these allegations, Raffy Tulfo reached out to the children and interviewed them on air via call. During the brief interrogation, they were able to reach out to the elder child, John Carl. Although he did not specify the reason, he claimed that both of them wants to stay with their mother.
Furthermore, the 15-year-old appears to be suffering from emotional and pyschological abuse because his father allegedly blames him for the rift in their family.
To settle this sticky matter once and for all, Raffy Tulfo got a hold of the father-in-question, Rommel Apostol. The father was caught off guard while he was listening to the allegations hurled against him.
The host gave him a chance to redeem himself and the father did not deny the fact that he hit his son once. However, he claimed that he has a sound reason for doing this ‘disciplinary measure’:
“Nasampal ko ‘yung anak ko sir dahil nasagot nya ako ng pabalang sir. Alam mo sir na-stroke ako, ang problema sir, nasampal ko ‘yun pero isang beses lang naman ‘yun.”
Now that you have finally heard both sides of the story, it’s time to decide the custody of the children. Do you think the host will favor the mother or the father? Here’s what people have to say about this:
