i have heard about how easy it is to divorce in some countries while it takes years to get in countries like India in some case divorce is not given even after 15 years of fighting in court. but where divorce are easy the divorce rate is too high.. so do you think it should be that you should atleast live some years together before you can apply for divorce except in same cases where cheating or beating is in marriage.

In the philippines, divorce are not acceptable but annulment is ok. Actually for me divorce and annulment is just the same. Separating two person from what they promised and that is sharing life together. I was just shock that in other country, divorce will cost you only $300 or lower than that. And you have every reason to divorce your partner, snoring is one that really shock (ha ha ha because i snore, so anybody who will marry can easily divorce me), there are lots that anytime, anyday and any reason you can divorce your partner. Might as well, just do cohabitating or living in together.

Hello. $300? so much? In China, if both the partners are agree about the divorce, it cost less than $5. But I'm just curious about something.... why I know lot of pinays girls that are single moms, and the father runned away, don't care about the childs, and sometimes just married another girl? At least, where the divorce is admitted, you can divorce from your spouse, but not from your childs. Sometimes laws are just reasonable. Why you should impose to someone a whole unhappy life?

In our country there's no divorce here. The church here in the Philippines did not permits the divorce. We have annulment but the process is to long to approve. As a Catholic country the government and the church believe that the family is still important to be intact. I think in South Korea and America they can easily process the divorce there. But for my opinion as long as you can resolve your relationship try to find a way to solve it because family is still important to be together.

Annulment in the philippines are now easy to get. Max is 8 months but before it takes years and years of process before your married to be annulled. I know people who got their annulment less than 6months.

15 years this means they have insufficient court room, many procedures and more important cases than divorce case. Can you live separately with your spouse? See, people get married after a few years they get divorce because of conflict that should not be happen at the first place.

Yes, it does take a long time for courts to pass a divorce order…however things are speeding up these days, don’t know whether I can think of that as an improvement or not, though. Sometimes due to many outside influences, we tend to forget our inner bonds and think of divorcing our partner for many reasons…if we can sit back and think neutrally, we will find most of these reasons a little frivolous and if we just make an effort to let go of our ego a little, most of these differences can be resolved. What the courts are doing now is advising the couple to spend some time with each other away from family and kids. It’s a sort of counseling and its worked wonders with most estranged couples. Once they are outside the negative influence of family and friends and the same stifling environment, couples are rediscovering each other and their lost love. I think that is just wonderful, so yes, courts should take sometime before pronouncing divorce

i think it should be left up to indivduals. if you decide you want a divorce, maybe court required counseling, but after that how ever long it takes to get done with the division of assets. if your unhappy you won't magically be happy with a divorce but sometimes we make bad decisions. maybe the anullment laws should be more flexible.

Ultra although divorce is, it's a way to resolve the marriage problems, sometimes people have no choice except divorce during marriage living. Thus make it easy to divorce is better for people starting a new living.

If divorce is made that too easy, they shouldn't have marriage at all. Nowadays, marriage is taken lightly. It's purpose is no longer there. That is why I really am not in favor with divorce. During marriage, both parties should've accepted each other no matter what. Marriage should be an implication that your commitment to each other is great. That's the main reason why you're marrying. If ever there are some incidents that's leading you for some arguments, settle it. Try to think of what you were before. You were happy before, that's why you married each other. Think of the good things. So I actually don't like to have divorce implemented.

It should depend on the situation. Cheating and abuse are good reasons to get a divorce.Why should people be humilated to stay with a spouse any number of years who doesn't respect them.

i think divorce should be an easy process.. if the couple is not happy with each other then they are bound to get free of that relationship.. as u said that in india it take 15 years to get a divorce. it just increase the time for sufferings and misunderstandings between the two.. if a girl apply for divorce coz of beating and after this if she have to w8 for 15 years then it'll just increase her sufferings.. nothing else..

Divorce is never good for the family nor for the couple. I am never in favour of divorce given very easily because if it is easily available then it can become an option very easily & people wont work hard for their marriage. It is not easy to be married and you have to change your life style totally to adjust with a partner and then be responsible for kids and family and home. It needs lots and lots of hard work and commitment and also expenses increase. so easy divorce should never be an option

I don't think that people sometimes marry for the wrong reason. Other times you just don't know a person until you live with them. I know divorce rates are high, but I still wonder that if people spend more time with counceling before they were married that the divorce rates wouldn't be what they were. There is a movie made called liscence to wed. It was a funny movie, but it also brought up all kinds of questions about a couples goals and what they expected once they were married. I understand what you are saying, but I truely think that if people want to get married it should be more of a process of meeting with a councelor and getting issued out in the open BEFORE they get married so they can work through them before they are just put into a position to work them out themselves.

It is not easy.Sometimes divorse makes some lives worser and sometimes it makes others life happier.It depends on the two persons.If both agree then the divorse is easy.

Ya . divorce cases in india are also increasing. But our judicial system has its own merits and demerits. In foreign nations , divorces are common. According to me , divorce for a silly reasons should be banned. But, due to unavoidable situations (like harassment) ,divorce can be given.
