Yasmien says balance is key when it comes to handling conjugal money.

Kapuso actress Yasmien Kurdi opened up about how she handles her family’s finances during the press conference of GMA’s newest drama-action series dubbed Beautiful Justice held yesterday, August 27. 

In the said soap opera, Yasmien will play the role of Alice, a housewife who will later on seek justice after her PDEA agent husband died on a failed buy bust operation. Aside from Yasmien, young stars Bea Binene and Gabbi Garcia will heat up the network’s primetime viewing as well.

And just like in her upcoming teleserye, Yasmien is a mother to her six-year-old beautiful daughter Ayesha Zara and also a loving wife to her pilot husband Rey Soldevilla. Jr. in real life. 

In her interview with the press, the actress shared a part of her married life particularly handling household expenses.

“Pagdating sa mag-asawa ang pinakamaganda dyan ay hindi maging madamot sa isa’t-isa.” she explained. “Once na nag-asawa kayo, ang pera ng isa ay pera din ng isa...dapat hindi kayo nagiging madamot sa isa’t-isa. Kung ano yung kinikita ko ngayon, pera niya at kung anong kinikita niya, pera ko din ’yon. So we’re as one, dapat hindi tayo nagbibilangan, kung sino man ang meron siya ang mag-bigay.”

She adds that it’s also important to allot some amount for themselves and not be too consumed by just thinking of family needs. Balance is key, she explained.

“Nasa akin po ’yong budget ng whole house pero we set aside budget for ourselves. Kasi paano pag may gusto siyang bilhin para sa sarili niya or ako may gusto akong bilhin para sa sarili ko and then the other goes to our savings.”

She adds: “Pero we don’t count na magkano ang kinita mo, walang ganon na portion kasi nga mag-asawa kami. So dapat hanggang pagtanda namin nagtutulungan kami...hanggang retirement namin para mas mapaginhawa ang buhay namin.” 

When asked if she’s the type of wife who will just wait for her husband to give her money, no questions asked. The artist was quick to say, “Hindi. Alam ko kung magkano ang kinikita niya at alam niya kung magkano ang kinikita ko.”

She added: “Pero kahit magkano ang kunin ko sa kanya hindi naman ’yon kinwkwestyon ng asawa ko. Kahit kunin ko pa buong pera niya, hindi ’yon question dahil pera ko din ’yon. Ngayon, kahit kunin pa niya ang buong ari-arian ko at buong pera ko, okay lang sakin dahil asawa ko siya. So kung anong meron ’yong asawa mo sayo din ’yon, kung anong meron ka...sa kanya din ’yon.

“Sa akin ang ari-arian niya, sa akin siya buong-buo at ako din sa kanya buong-buo.” she stressed. 

GMA’s original soap Beautiful Justice will air this coming September 9, weeknights after 24 Oras on GMA Telebabad.
