Divorce in the Philippines
« on: September 24, 2007, 12:11:57 pm »
Tingin nyo kailangan na bang  i legalized ang divorce [textspeak!] sa Pilipinas??

Para sa kin ok lang....kasi sa dami ng naghihiwalay na mag-asawa ngayon..pansin kulang..

For me it should not be legalized. Yun na nga eh dumadami na ang naghihiwalay lalo lang lalakas ang loob nila dahil may divorce atleast at the moment na wala pang divorce they will ty to work things out - mag leagal separation na muna sila. Walang bagay na di nadadaan sa magandang pag uusap unless binubugbog ka na!
Life is so short that is why make the most out of it!

I think it was posted before that for divorce to be legalized in The Philippines, there should be amendments made in The Philippine Constitution first. From what little I can remember of my studying The Constitution, oo nga yata hehe.

But I'm okay with divorce. There are really some cases wherein marriages could not work, that not even a miracle could salvage them. What I'm thinking is, if a marriage is made to last, it would withstand any legal enactment. And even in countries wherein divorce is legal, people (at least decent people) still take the time to save their marriages. Plus, wouldn't it be better to be bound to someone, not because the law says so or not because you can't do anything about it, but because you just simply want to?

mei napanood ako sa news lately.. i forgot what country (and kung law na ba sya or law na gustong i-pass) pero yun marriage license is valid only for 7 years. tapos after 7 years pwede mag-decide yun couple kung gusto nila i-renew yun marriage license nila or go their separate ways. yun ata sagot nila para mabawasan ang divorce. bawas gastos din nga wala ng divorce-divorce na aasikasuhin. LOL. baka pwede mag-work sa buong mundo pati sa 'pinas.

kung ako, ok lang divorce. mas ok na maghiwalay ang magulang kaysa lumaki yun bata sa hostile environment.
Beginnings are usually scary and endings are usually sad, but it's everything in between that makes it all worth living.

   para sa akin ok lang kung magkaroon ng divorce dito sa tin... traumatic kasi ang pinagdadaanan ng couple pag annulment, tsaka ang haba & ang mahal ng process... whereas sa divorce, mas madali & very less traumatic...
   tanggapin man natin o hindi, ang dami na talagang naghihiwalay ngayon kahit hindi pa sila magdaan sa proseso...

divorce is an easy way out sa marriage.
pero para sa akin, yoko ng divorce
kung meron kasi nyan, most probably,
ang mga relasyon na pede pa pala i-work out e,
hindi na mabibigyan ng isa pang chance na ma-save
kunsabagay, depende rin naman sa mga taong involve sa relasyon

i think divorce should be legalized..in a country that doesnt allow divorce, how many married couples are separated? everybody wants their relationship to work out. and some may thing divorce is an easy way out but the truth is, nothing is easy in ending relationships.  only difference is, having divorce allows people to start over again. the disadvantaged partner is not left hanging or with nothing.  there is a legal process involved and of course, it comes with it, the legal division of properties.  anyway its just a thought.

its ok to legalize it basta valid ang grounds to apply for divorce.. (hindi [textspeak!] [textspeak!] tulad ng rason nla tom cruise and nicole kidman). sana  before they would go through divorce magkaron ng requirements like couple's therapy etc.. try to save the marriage first. also before mag remarry to another person [textspeak!] mga divorced magkaron din ng trainings about family building, work/income review, psych exams etc.. or some probation time before to remarry. tama ba ako? im not familiar with this topic eh.. alam ko [textspeak!] promulgated by God din tong divorce sa old testament. :D

i'm very much for the legalization of divorce here in the Philippines coz I see no benefit in being imprisoned in a married relationship when you're no longer happy.

unhappy couples should be set free to look for other people who could give them the kind of marriage or the relationship they want for themselves.

counter-productive yung away kayo ng away trying your very best to make the relationship work and last pero hindi talaga mag-work kasi you are too different in almost every aspect of life.

i don't think people are going to get divorced dahil lang pwede. ano yan, incentive o combi item na kasama ng kasal? if marriages don't work anymore, you can bet that the people  involved will try to make it work (depending on their own definition of making it work) but if it won't work anymore, then it won't. so, yes, i am okay with divorce, and let married people decide for themselves if and when they think it's an appropriate action for them.

No..

If divorce will be legalized, then hndi na masyado pinagiisipan ng maigi yung pagpapakasal kc if ever na hndi magworkout madali lang mag-break free.What happens is that kapag nagkaroon ng konting misunderstanding, yung karamihan e gagawing easy way out ang divorce. People wil not put a lot of effort in making the marriage work since there is an easy solution already.

The way people will look at marriage will be different, hndi na ganoon ka-sagrado and special kc u can get out of it anytime u fall out of love. Maabuso lang ang value ng marrige. Naicip ko pa, kokonti nga ang mangangaliwa kc pwde nmang hiwalyan agad thru divorce.

Plus, it is the children who will suffer the most. Dadami lang ang cases ng broken families.

For those na ginugulpi ng asawa or pinagtaksilan..meron namng legal separation for that.

The Philippines pa naman is predominantly Catholic. Eh sobrang lihis ang divorce sa turo ng simbahan. Definitely mangengealam ng husto ang simbhan if ever ilegalize ang divorce.

Divorce should be legalized, ang dami na kasing nangagaliwa ngayon dahil walang divorce. It's better to be divorced than to be married and your husband/wife is fooling around behind your back because he's/she's no longer happy. Aside from that ang daming domestic violence na nangyayari. To protect the wife she should be AWAY FROM HER HUSBAND PHYSICALLY AND LEGALLY.

^Just because it's there does not mean that couples will do it.  It's the same as just because you have maternity leave doesn't mean that working women are gonna get pregnant every year.  It's there if you need them.

i also agree on legalizing divorce in the philippines.. regardless of the fact na our country is predominantly catholic .. i don't think dadami ang broken families.. kasi in reality .. madami na talaga ang broken families.. this will just legalize what they are going through ..

and yes .. its really the children who will suffer .. ( i should know ,, because i came from a broken family) but having divorce would ease the trauma and the stigma of having an "immoral" parents since the separation would be finalized..

it's really up to the persons involved in the relationship if they would value what they have.. but we all know ,, and we have seen that by not having a divorce in our society it did'nt do anything to prevent separation .. because we all have our own minds.. and our own hearts.. that even our marriage vows can't do anything about it..

fab_femme, even the husband is beating his wife, she will not find a way out? Sino ang kawawa ang wife or the future generation? What if she will get killed?

^ if that's the case criminal offense ang dapat isampa right? then annulment can follow. meron naman annulment to void the marriage. the difference of the two is sa divorce, its like one is single again parang the whole marriage was bogus.
