MANILA – The top-rating ABS-CBN series "The Legal Wife" on Tuesday had netizens raving about its latest episode wherein Adrian (Jericho Rosales) finally decides to let go of Monica (Angel Locsin).

In its Tuesday episode, Adrian went to see his estranged wife Monica to tell her that he is finally agreeing to the annulment that she wants.

“Hindi ko na lalabanan yung annulment ng kasal natin. Hindi na ako mag-aapila. Kasalanan ko, kasalanan ko talaga. Ako yung sumira sa pangako. Makulit ako. Naligaw ako. Pero pabalik-balik ako kasi ikaw naman talaga ang mahal ko. Kaya okay, gusto mo maging masaya. Gagawin koi to kasi gusto kong maging malaya ka,” he says.

To which, Monica firmly replies, “Adrian ‘wag mo isipin na nililigtas mo ako o kung ano man. Kasi sa akin itong desisyon na ito. Ako ang nagpapalaya sa sarili ko.”

Left with no choice, a crying Adrian tells Monica that all he wants is to see her happy again even if it meant they will no longer be together.

“I hope you live a happy life. Iyung buhay na gusto ko ibigay sa’yo na hindi ko naibigay. Gawin mo lahat, lahat ng magpapasaya sa’yo. Kasi kung hindi mo gagawin yun, habang buhay ko pagsisisihan na pinakawalan kita,” he says.

The tearful conversation between the estranged couple ended with Adrian tightly embracing Monica.

Several netizens praised the delivery of Rosales’ dialogue, with others also noting the courage of Locsin’s character to stand by her decision.

Now down to its last 3 days, the next episode of "The Legal Wife" shows Adrian figuring in an accident, with Monica crying at the hospital.

"The Legal Wife," which is under the direction of Rory Quintos and Dado Lumibao, airs weeknights after "Ikaw Lamang" during ABS-CBN's primetime block.
