9 years ago, the actor said he felt happy with his marriage and maintained a trusting relationship with his partner , as he revealed to TVyNovelas magazine when they were married for 29 years:
“ Each person must draw up a life project, and I have done it since I married Gaby. We have met the goals that we have set for ourselves as a couple, and that has kept us going. When she passes 30, a woman is solid, mature, with a delicious juice in her soul and skin, she knows what she wants; if you sleep with someone it is nothing more for sex. For me, an old woman is old from the moment she no longer feels feminine ”.
