Last year was the year of the break-ups, with a number of high-profile relationships coming to an end. We saw some brief flings fizzling out, some long-term relationships breaking down and some marriages coming to an end, all leading to 2013 being a very bad year for high-profile relationships.
One couple that brought their brought their relationship to an end in 2013, was American born Venezuelan actress Sonya Smith and her husband, Mexican actor Gabriel Porras. Sonya Smith and Gabriel Porras were together for eight years and married for five years, before deciding to call time on their relationship back in June 2013, something which Gabriel admits he is still struggling with.
Porras explained, "Obviously, all breakups things are learned It was painful at first, but if there is no pain there is no learning I did not expect, I was a little surprised the news,.. However, [I am] aware of the reasons she had to decide that. I think now the only thing left is trying to follow distance. Continue to respect the image of what we had God bless you, God bless me, and we can build a new life."
While some couples remain friends, following a break-up, this has certainly not been the case for Gabriel Porras and Sonya Smith, as the couple are no longer in touch with one another and have not spoken for some time now. With that said, Gabriel has also stated that he still has a lot of respect for Sonya, not only as the women she has become but also as the artist she is.
