In an interview with MEGA Entertainment, the couple said that they both see marriage as the ~ultimate goal~ of their relationship. "Ako kasi, whenever I get into a relationship, I'm the type of guy who dates to marry talaga. I have friends who date to marry," Khalil confessed.
"So, for me, there's no other point, there's no other end goal but to spend the rest of your life with your partner. That's the goal. So, whatever we do leans towards that."
Gabbi, on the other hand, said that she can already see Khalil in her future: "Oo naman! Wala namang iba."
"Anong itsura niya? Masayang masaya siya? Sana. [laughs] Oo naman. Knowing Khalil, I could imagine nakatayo siya dun ta's may hawak siyang film cam," she joked.
They also shared their secrets to *maintaining* their long-term relationship. "Communication talaga. From the get-go, from the start of our relationship until now, we always sit down and communicate our feelings," Gabbi revealed.
She continued: "For example... naiinis ako sa kanya or naiinis siya sa akin, we would sit down and say, 'Alam mo, nainis ako sa 'yo earlier,' or, 'I didn’t like what you’ve been doing lately.' So, we really talk about our feelings and we never let a fight na matapos nang wala man lang nag-explain kung ano yung feelings ng isa't isa."
The couple also said that another aspect of their relationship that they cherish is their ~friendship~. "For me, friendship is really important. For us kasi, we started as friends. So, I feel like a person whom you can keep as your best friend is really, really important kasi you guys can just hang out mainly. 'Yun talaga—you guys get to know each other on a much deeper level if you’re best friends," the 23-year-old actress noted.
Gabbi and Khalil will be celebrating their fifth anniversary this February. They first confirmed their relationship in 2018. In one of their old YouTube videos, Gabbi shared that they first met at Julia Barretto's debut in 2015, where Kathryn Bernardo introduced Khalil to her.
