It's quite surprising to know that The Philippines and Vatican City are the only two remaining countries that don't have DIVORCE LAW...can somebody remind me what century we are all in?Lord have mercy!I know that it is a very sensitive issue and to some extent a taboo subject...We live in a world of constant change and yet It's a bit disconcerting to know that the country I dearly love is being ruled by a few sad characters stuck in their ancient/medieval ways of thinking and doing things....those so called Moral Authority are nothing but a bunch of hypocrites that ought to be thrown in the middle of Pacific Ocean and let hungry SHARKS feast on their sorry ?ss...(behind) I applaud the courage of a handful of lawmakers that dared to introduce a legislation(divorce bill)knowing that it will be met with so much ridicule and abomination primarily from the Catholic Church.....I wish that they'll keep on filing such bills even if they will be stopped dead in its tracks..keep fighting. To all whose reading this post,What's your opinion or take on the matter of having DIVORCE law in the Philippines?

I think if a person chooses to get a divorce then they should be allowed to get one if they want it. I am happily married myself but I think that if you are so miserable that you want to end it then you should be able to do so. Have a great day and happy myLotting!!!

Yeah Life's unfair specially to all women who have no other choice but to live in an abusive/unhappy marriage.

I think that everybody should be able to get a divorce if they would like one, and I think that it is cruel to force people to be together for the rest of their lives if they don't want to be. It isn't fair on them, and they might be able to make very good partners to other people if they were given half a chance. If they have children and they're forced to stay together then it might have a negative effect on them because their parents would be arguing all of the time and that just isn't a good way for a child to have to live.

You're absolutely right GemmaR...for those reasons alone will be enough justification to have divorce law.....but NO they'd rather have unhappy couples involved in an illicit affairs....w/c is more sinful and wrong than to get divorce....hmmmmm!what a life,what a laugh.

I never agree with divorce thing. However I never agree either with abusive relationship. Emotional and physical abuse is enough ground for a separation why not. Yes, marriage should be divine and sacred, but the truth and reality is...not every marriage is made from heaven. I pity those women who suffered the most when it comes to this kind of relationship. They don't have enough courage to fight becoz, separation/divorce seems taboo and women are always the loser in this situation. (what a crap) Have a good day
