Overseas Filipino workers (OFWs) often have high salaries, much higher than what they would usually earn in the Philippines. This is the reason why many could easily afford to buy their families a brand new car and build their dream house.
Sadly, there are also many OFWs who end up breaking up with their spouses for various reasons – and they would support their new families more than their legal family.
This is what happened to Eric Gutierrez, a licensed electrician working in Qatar. He used to send all his salary to his family in the Philippines and even started building their dream house but he met Ethel Sapod who would become his mistress.
Since they were together, Eric would send his money to Ethel who would be the one to send the money to his family. Because the allotment became smaller but their three kids are still in school, Eric’s wife Buenafe Gutierrez had to give up paying for their house. Buenafe and the kids had to rent a home.
With the mistress controlling his money, Eric’s family suffered financial problems. This led Buenafe to seek help from Raffy Tulfo so that Eric would once again support his family.
Buenafe also revealed that Ethel is not just controlling the allotment but also urging Eric not to send extra money to his kids when they ask. Also, Eric and Ethel now have a child together.
While the OFW’s legal family is experiencing financial troubles, his mistress lives a rich life. Buenafe even learned that Ethel recently bought a brand new Toyota Fortuner but Ethel denies this is from Eric’s money, saying she sells vegetables the whole day and does not even get enough sleep so she could earn money.
Ethel also accused Buenafe many things but Raffy sided with the latter, telling Ethel that Buenafe’s financial troubles were due to her arrival in Eric’s life. Raffy also reminded Eric and Ethel that they could face charges, especially because Eric and Buenafe are legally married – and the marriage has not been annulled.
Netizens couldn’t help but get angry at Ethel not just for being the mistress but also for being audacious and loud, accusing the legal wife of being the ‘bad’ one! Tsk. Tsk.
