Karel Marquez says she is not a battered wife.
Karel left their home and now renting an apartment with her two children.
Karel says, as of this time she does not need a man to continue with her life. She wants to have focus on her career and for her children’s future (although she’s supported by her husband Arman de Guzman).
Karel admits that she still loves her husband but they have different priorities in life.
Karel plays ‘Elizabeth’ in TV5’s Babaeng Hampaslupa.
