great telenovela I have always been a fan of telenovels, I know some might criticise the acting and the story lines, but for me i see them a bit of an escape from reality. "La Mujer de mi vida" is probably my favourite telenovela, and this is mainly due to the great chemistry between the two leads (who ended up getting married in real life),
The story is filled with holes, and the acting is sometimes laughable, but if you like telenovela, and you prepared to overlook some holes in the storyline then you will enjoy this one. overall its a good telenovela.
