Pinoy Controversial TV Drama-My Husband's Lover

-One of the theme songs of My Husband's Lover-a Pinoy TV Drama

My Husband's Lover(MHL) is a Filipino drama series by GMA Network starring Dennis Trillo, Carla Abellana, and Tom Rodriguez. It premiered on June 10, 2013 replacing Love & Lies on the network's primetime block. The show has multiple continuing story lines that tackle sensitive yet relevant social issues like homosexual and bisexual relationships, homophobia and the society's discrimination against homosexuals, infidelity, pre-marital sex and the consequences of early or unplanned marriages. It also tackles the importance of family, friendship, integrity and love.

My Husband's Lover tells the story of Vincent(Tom Rodriguez) who got his girlfriend Lally (Carla Abellana), pregnant while they were still in college. The two decided to get married even if Vincent's mother, Elaine, was very much against it. With that, Lally's life of marriage was never smooth-sailing because of Vincent's mother in law. But for the sake of her love for her husband, Lally endures the hardships in dealing with her mother-in-law.

Meantime, Vincent who is bisexual had an affair with his former openly gay boyfriend Eric ( played by Dennis Trillo). Later Lally discovered and caught Eric and Vincent almost about to kiss. Lally was devastated and try to force Vincent to tell the truth to his parents, Armando ( Roi Vinzon) and Elaine( Kuh Ledesma), with the hope that their marriage can be saved. But Armando is extremely homophobic. Lally decided not to force Vincent to tell the truth about his bisexuality to his parents afraid of the extreme reaction of Armando. Vincent promised to Lally that he will not see Eric again to save his marriage.

Eric and Vincent try to forget about each other, but sometimes they still remember the happy times when they were together. Eric even sold his condo hoping to erase the memories of their love nest. Unknowingly to Eric, Vincent purchased the condo via proxy of the manager of his car dealership.

There are other side stories and characters besides the love triangle. An example of a character admired by the LBGT viewers is the mother of Eric ( played by Chandra Romero) who is very supportive of her son's sexual orientation, the exact opposite of Vincent's father.

What do you think will be the ending of this very popular TV drama?. Will Eric and Vincent see each other again? If so, will Lally asked for a divorce? Will Lally's friendship with Paul turn into another adulterous event in the drama? Will Armando and Elaine found out that their son is indeed bisexual? WHAT will be their reaction?

Here is my brain-storming ideas for the ending of the story: Perhaps after 20 years from now.

1. Lally finished school, become a successful business woman and had divorced Vincent and will be married to Paul after the divorced is finalized.

2. Eric and Vincent had reunited and live happily with custody of Vincent two kids, now adults. Possibly in 20 years, same sex marriages will be legal in the Philippines. Diego the son will turn out to be also gay.

3. Armando committed suicide after learning the truth of his son's sexual orientation. Elaine died of natural death still not believing her son is bisexual.

Again, no matter how MHL ends, it has broken the taboo in Philippine Television of broadcasting the reality of homosexuality, adultery and homophobia. Hopefully this drama has opened the hearts of million of Filipino viewers accepting and understanding the lifestyle of the LGTB community.
