up until today, the government and the filipino people battle against the legalization of divorce in the Philippines. as a christian, what can you say about it? do you favor divorce to be legal?

as a christian, i dont like divorce to be legal here, because if it will be, it will be very easy to any couple to file it because of a little misunderstanding.

I would agree. Not because my marriage is on the rocks but because I have observed abusive relationships going on and the wife or the husband are hopelessly tied to the selfish and irresponsible partner longer than necessary because of some religious convention. My colleage, for one, is a victim of such convention. She is married to a hopeless womanizer who does not contribute any to the family's finances, has a lot of women on the sides and abuses his wife both emotionally and physically. When he gets ill, it's the wife who is expected to care for him because that is, sadly, the convention. If divorce were legalized, she could have spared herself a lot of stress over such a wayward husband. Annulment is not an option because lawyer's fees are sky high and a teacher in the country earns a few thousand pesos minus deductions from loans. It is good to fight for a marriage, but if, after twenty five years, the husband doesn't change; if there is nothing left to fight for, does a wife really need to stay tied because it's what convention dictates even if she continues to be abused?

i think divorce should not be legalized here in the Philippines. marriage is a vocation, not a job that you can quit anytime you like. many couples nowadays get married because of the urge and not by the true meaning of love, relationship and sacrifice.
