The two will give life to the story of Stella and Jimmy, who have remained sexually intimate in their 20 years of marriage.

Things will suddenly change when Jimmy starts to become violent whenever he wants to make love to his wife.

One night, Stella chooses not to sleep beside Jimmy out of fear. Jimmy gets mad and forces himself on Stella despite her begging him to stop.

The incident happens again for the worse because this time, Jimmy sexually abuses his wife in front of their daughter. Stella, fed up with Jimmy’s behavior, files rape charges against him in court.

Whose side will the court take? Does Stella really have an obligation to give Jimmy’s every sexual need as his lawfully wedded wife?

Don’t miss the episode of “Ipaglaban Mo” entitled “Inabusong Karapatan,” directed by Jillmer Dy this Saturday (Feb 18) after “It’s Showtime” on ABS-CBN.

Nadine Samonte mangangaliwa!

Matapos magkolehiyo, nagtrabaho si Vivian (Maxene Magalona) sa isang medical company na kilala sa cosmetic surgery. Doon, muli niyang makikita si Arthur (Marco Alcaraz) at aasang magkakabalikan sila ngunit mabibigo siya nang malaman niyang kasal na ito kay April (Nadine Samonte). Pipilitin niyang limutin ang sakit na nadarama at agad na mahuhulog ang loob sa medical representative na si Lawrence (Luis Alandy).

Magpapakasal sina Vivian at Lawrence subalit malalaman ng lalaking panakip-butas lamang siya. Pagmamalupitan niya si Vivian at pasasakitan sa pamamagitan ng pakikipagkaibigan kina Arthur at April. Si Vivian naman ay magtitiis alang-alang sa kanilang anak.

Samantala, mahuhuli ni Arthur na nangangaliwa si April at hindi sinasadyang masasangkot siya sa pagkamatay ng lalaki nito. Pipilitin siya ni April na huwag sumuko sa mga pulis dahil takot itong masira ang reputasyon kapag nabunyag ang buong pangyayari.

Sa kanyang pagtakas, maaaksidente si Arthur kasama si Lawrence at ito ang ikamamatay ng huli. Makakaligtas naman si Arthur subalit labis na nasunog ang mukha nito. Nagkamalay na lamang itong taglay ang mukha ni Lawrence dahil naoperahan.

Paano na ngayong angkin na ng pinakamamahal ni Vivian ang katauhan ng malupit niyang asawa? Makilala kaya niya ito sa kabila ng mukhang nagtatago sa tunay nitong pagkatao? Sino kina Vivian at April ang karapat-dapat tawaging asawa ni Arthur na ngayon ay si Lawrence na?

Ito ang takbo ng istorya sa My Lover, My Wife na kasama rin sa cast sina Carmi Martin bilang Ms. Charity, ina ni April at most sought-after cosmetic surgeon; Ernie Garcia bilang Ramon, ama ni Vivian; Maybelline Dela Cruz bilang Ellen, nakatatandang kapatid at matalik na kaibigan ni Vivian; Princess Snell bilang Hazel, sosya­lerang kaibigan ni April; Jace Flores bilang Cesar, kaibigan ni Lawrence; at si Syrael Jester bilang Nicolo, ang anak nina Lawrence at Vivian.

Sa direksiyon ni Jay Altarejos at sa panulat ni Suzette Doctolero, ang My Lover, My Wife ay magsisimula ngayong Lunes, Feb. 28, pagkatapos ng Nita Negrita sa GMA Dramarama sa Hapon.

Mapapanood din ang My Lover, My Wife worldwide simula Marso 3 sa GMA Pinoy TV.
