Senate: Divorce bill after RH

By |

MANILA, Philippines – Senator  Pia Cayetano, head of the Senate  committee on youth, women and family relations, is ready to engage in another controversial  issue, the  proposed divorce  bill, but only after   Congress is done with the Reproductive  Health measure.

“Hayaan nyong  tapusin ko muna ito tapos magbabaran tayo sa divorce, ok?” Cayetano told  reporters  on  Wednesday, referring to the  RH  bill  now being tackled  at the  bicameral  conference committee.

But in May this year,  the senator openly expressed  in a television interview  the need for Congress to start debates on divorce.

“I really think it’s high time for the divorce bill,” she said when asked if there is now a need to pursue discussion on the proposed divorce bill.

“I’ll tell you why. I’ve talked to lawyers and psychologists and psychiatrists and it’s so traumatic to go through annulment because under our Philippine laws, you have to blame someone, you have to say you’re  incapacitated, you’re saying that this marriage never existed, which is not true,” she said.

“Ask anyone, I’m sure at some point in time whether it’s one year or 10 years or 20 years, they loved each other, so why can’t you call it what it is? We loved each other, something went wrong, it’s done. Why will you say it never existed?”
Cayetano herself has been separated for the past eight years and is now in the process of annulment.

She described the process of annulment as “terrible.”
“It’s terrible. It’s not true, it’s not humane,” she said. ”So for me, it’s high time. Let’s bring it to the level where it should be and call it a divorce and deal it that way.”

But Senator Ralph Recto, in a separate interview  this Wednesday, joked  about being against  allowing divorce in the country for fear that his wife,  Batangas Governor Vilma Santos,  would  use it against him.

“Kung papayagan ko yung divorce bill baka i-divorce ako ng asawa ko,”  Recto said in jest.

“Against ako natural na yung aswa ko idi-divore ako,” he added.

Turning serious, Recto said, he has yet to read the  proposed measure  before commenting on the issue.

“Alam mo, many of us, titulo pa lang, we’re judging bills. That’s not my job in the Senate. I don’t judge bills by its title, similarly you don’t judge a book by its cover so kelangan basahin muna lahat…”he added.

  • Ommm

    Oh yes, of course but let’s slow down a bit and let the bishops catch their breath and adjust their pacemakers… after the Christmas break sounds about right….

    • Don Dee

      Ewan ko ha, sa akin ok lang na matigok ang mga ito. :D I mean, listen to their condemnation of the RH Bill! Meron ka bang narinig na ganitong condemnation kapag isang pari ay nahuling nang rape ng menor de edad? So mas masama pala ang condom kesa mang rape ng bata. That is what I am getting from the RCC for I have not heard one bishop much less the CBCP condemn the heinous acts of these pedophile priests.

      • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_2DAZWQGRABQ742P6J6XNTSLGJQ dark matter

        Actually, napakababaw ng dahilan if not baseless ang argumento nitong mga paring ito. Gusto lang nilang i-assert ang kanilang posisyon kaya laging nangunguna sa mga issues. Ngayon, nalaman nila na humihina na ang kanilang impluwensiya.

    Why introduce another controversial bill? FOI and ANTI DYNASTY muna!

    I know that senate is already finished reviewing FOI and just waiting for congress’s go signal, but please urge the congress to hasten FOI’s approval.

    unahin nyo ang FOI bill anak ng pukang na talaga kung ano ang kailangan para maiwasan ang pagnakakaw ayaw nyong gawin mga kawatan kayo 

    • PinasK0ngMahal

        kailan pa?

  • mad_as_Hamlet

    When that time comes, prepare ye all citizens, for the booming voices of the bishops proclaiming: “What God hath joined together, let no man put asunder!”  While they clutch their stock certificates in the country’s top 100 corporations close to their breasts. 

    Hence, as early as now, I would humbly suggest to Madam Sen. Cayetano that the bill provide that divorce courts should be presided only by women-judges.  Also as a literal pre-emptive move against these literalists-bishops.

  • johnlordphilip

    Go for it Madam Senator! It’s everyone’s right… not just for the RICH who can afford an ANNULMENT.

  • pcosmachine

    Senator Pia Cayetano will no doubt be supported by at least 80% of Filipinos in passing this long overdue Divorce Bill.

    This bill is important because it will give married couples who are having difficulties in their marriage an option to settle their irreconcilable differences and move on with their lives.

    Although the Divorce Bill is a sure winner in both the House and the Senate votes just like the RH Bill, it will also face a lot of opposition from the Catholic Church and some lawmakers and senators who are corrupted by the Catholic Church.

    But I can’t wait to see once again how these Catholic bishops and anti-Divorce Bill lawmakers/senators are SLAPPED ON THE FACE once the bill is passed.

    Ang ina-annul lang ng simbahan ay yung mga may pambayad. Diyan niyo makikita na mukhang pera ang simbahan na nagli-linis-linisan at kunwari kontra sa RH bill. Ang dapat unahin ng mga mambabatas ay ang pag-puwersa sa mga lalaking anak ng anak sa kung sinu-sinong babae na magbigay ng suporta. Napakadaling tumakbo ng lalaki pagkatapos nitong magparaos at si kawawang babae ang naiiwan sa hirap. Bago kayo mag-isip ng diborsyo, unahin ang paghuli at pagkulong sa mga iresponsableng lalaki…tulad ng mga pulis na tatlo ang kabit at mga senador at kongresista na mahilig dumalaw sa sauna.  Isama niyo rin yung mga pari na tusok ng tusok ng sandata nila sa mga parokyano habang nagdarasal ng Ama Namin.

    • bugoybanggers

      Boy, sa korte dinadaan ang annulment. Wala ka bang alam o nagmamagaling ka. Ano ang KORTE, SIMBAHAN? Hindi ang mga PARI ang nag papasya dito kung hindi ang mga ABOGADO. Mag basa ka muna ng batas. Nakakahiya ka BOY! JOSE RIZAL, eh puro lang naman kantot ang nasa isip mo diba bakit magpapakasal ka pa?  Tsaka wag kang manLAHAT boy, hindi ka pinipilit ng mga PARING habangbuhay kang maging KATOLIKO. MAlaya kang tumiwalag at umanib sa mga KULTO kaya tumahimik ka na lang! Naimpluwensyahan ka ng BUGOK mong taga ANYAYA. O wag mung kalimutan may babayaran ka pa sa KULTO mo baka madoble pa. Larga na.

      • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_2DAZWQGRABQ742P6J6XNTSLGJQ dark matter

        Panay ang banggit mo ng KULTO para tukuyin ang mga grupo na hindi KATO-LIKO. Mas KULTO pa nga kung tutuusin ang KATO-lisismo dahil puro ritual na wala namang basehan sa Bible.

      • joerizal

        Tanga, annulment sa simbahan ang ibig kong sabihin. Bago ka magbuka ng bibig mo intihdihin mo muna ang sinabi ko. Wala akong pakialam sa annulment ng gubyerno dahil matagal nang korup yan. Ikaw ang nakakahiya kasi naghahanap ka ng mga taong puwedeng barahin pero ikaw din ang gumagawa ng hukay mo. Wala ka kasing sariling opinyon kaya ka sumasakay sa opinyon ng iba. Walang pilitan? E bakit namimilit ang mga obispo mo na patayin ng mga kongresista ang RH bill? Engot. Kapag na-approve ang divorce sa yo dapat unang i-apply at i-divorce ang kaluluwa mo sa katawan mo.

  • Guest

    Divorce bill should be put in a referendum!

  • Gerald Abueva

    Sa wakas. If you get it passed Pia, I will reelect you in 2016.

    I am for anything that is against the damasos. It means its right! 
    I want the stupid bishops to be upset.
    Pero ang epal naman ng reporter, senate daw pero isang senator lang pala ang tinanong. Palayasin ang buwisit na yan o kaya i assign sa mindanao. Yan yung reporter na mahilig magsulat ng press release ni Senatong Ungasan.

  • brunogiordano

    She described the process of annulment as “terrible.”
    “It’s terrible. It’s not true, it’s not humane,” she said. ”So for me, it’s high time. Let’s bring it to the level where it should be and call it a divorce and deal it that way.”

    TAMA iyan PIA.

    Ipaglaban ang karapatan ng kababaihan laban sa mga BABAE-HATERS.

    Supportado ka namin hanggang maging batas ito.

    GO ! GO! GO! PIA!

    • bugoybanggers

      Tama nga naman PIA. Sige PIA ipagbunyi mo tutal wala ka namang ASAWA di ba? Palakpakan.

      • antonioluna

        ikaw siguro yung tipong nanggugulpe ng asawa o madalas mambabae, kaya takot kang mahiwalayan ng martyr mong asawa… nyahahaha sige bumalik ka na mars..or.. sa uranus, mas bagay ka dun!

  • yesyesyo

    The catholic church gives special treatment for the rich. only those who can afford to follow up their case all the way to the vatican can remarry.

    A divorce law will balance this unfair situation for the poor, battered, and abused persons whose relationships have turned violent and loveless.

    • bugoybanggers

      Rich? May ibedensya ka ba? Bakit marami namang naghihiwalay at nag aasawa muling mahihirap ah. Baka nasa MARS ka dahil wala kang alam sa mga utak ng kasalukuyan.

      • yesyesyo

        Too many example. Many celebrities, politicians, and VIPs who were able to remarry.

        Didnt you hear zsa zsa and dolphy were about to be married because the former’s marriage was finally annulled?

        Actually, annulment which is legal in the philippines is worse than divorce. the problem is, only the rich can afford the very long and expensive process.

      • SG0609

      • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_EDXEVEFHW2ZT5VWHDWBNM6XGE4 RyanE

        Meron ako kakilala na nagpa annul, limang taon ng nakaraan, at humigit sa 50 libong piso ang kanyang nagastos nuon. Ngayon ay baka isang daang libo na ang magagastos.  

        Yung legal-separated ay di pwedeng ikasal muli. Karamihan sa kanila ay nag lilive-in lang sa mga bago nilang kinakasama. Iba ang legal separation sa annulment. Yung annulled ang pwede ikasal muli dahil pinapawalan ng bisa ang unang kasal, o bale walang kasal na naganap.

      • bugoybanggers

        Ang pagpapa annul ng kasal sa KORTE ka gagastos hindi sa SIMBAHAN. Kaya mga abogado ang kumikita dito hindi mga PARI. Kaya yung mga walang alam magkonsulta muna.

  • Trollollolloll

    Pia Cayetano:

    Had an abnormal child –>RH Bill
    Had a failed marriage –>Divorce Bill

    She’s bitter. VERY BITTER.

    • yesyesyo

       It is significant how the true character of a supposedly conservative person is exposed by this divorce issue. Making fun of abnormal children and failed marriage is not fun at all.
      Very unchristian to say the least.

      The more I believe that those people who are saying they are conservatives are actually inconsiderate of the actual situations of other people. their minds are boxed on what the bishops are saying.

      • Trollollolloll

        You DOLT! 

        What makes you judge that I make fun of abnormal children and failed marriages by stating probable reasons for someone’s agenda?

        Staple hand to forehead!

  • FORTHE GOOD

    The headline is effective in jolting people out of their boring and
    monotonic day. But the catch is on the 3rd paragraph when it said that
    belmonte admitted that divorce bill will have to wait, for now.

    Nevertheless, it would be good to start the debate.

    I for one is in favor of divorce. I grew up watching my parents
    quarrel oftentimes. not a week would pass without a big fight. I can not
    forget shivering in fear everytime I hear my father’s booming voice as
    me and my 2 siblings stay still in the adjoining room. I was the eldest
    son. Looking back, I can just imagine how scared my younger brother and
    sister could have been.

    I dont want other kids to experience that. With that kind of
    environment growing up, no wonder I have psychological issues that I now
    live with. My sister has her own issues. The worst effect is on our
    youngest… sad what happened to him. our family carries the burden
    everyday.
     

    • http://www.dafk.net/what/ Kilabot ng mga Balahibo

      I am truly sorry for what happened to you and your siblings.

    • boldyak

      and therefore you are not a product of “love”…i don’t know what?…you should advocate that marriage is done because of “love”…nothing more…sorry to say that your parents are both selfish…just accept the fact…we should discourage marriage for convenience, marriage is for for people who commit themselves to one another…if there is divorce more children will suffer more than what you have suffered…philippine society is going to the dogs…

      • Renan Galang

        what an insufferably naive comment. because his parents quarrel non-stop you instantly assume that their marriage was borne out of convenience? on what earth-shattering truth are you basing this on?

        news flash: most people marry “for love”, but a million things can happen between your wedding date and now. people change and circumstances change.  life isn’t some sort of movie script where love will solve everything. it does not. the real world has real people who have real, irreparable differences. wake up.

  • tukmoldinako

    alam na natin yang pupuntahan ng utak ng gobyerno, pagkatapos ng RH , divorce naman. maganda yan para na tayong muslim pwede nang magasawa ng walo , me pera ako eh , hindi na bawal ang maraming asawa , syempre marami rin akong anak,  lumalabas pro poor talaga ang RH , yung may pera lang ang pwedeng magparami diba?

    kawawang mga babae, basta nalang iiwanan, e mahilig panaman mambabae si mister , rason para maghiwalay, eh nagkokondom naman sabi ni RH.  Pano na yung iniwang mga anak? maayos kaya ang kasadlakan ng broken family? ewan lang. Hindi lang sustento ang kailangan ng isang familya diba, mahalaga ang role ng tatay sa paghubog ng isang anak.

    tama nga ang RH, may nagsabi na rito, sunod nito divorce, same sex marriage, gaya gaya tayo diba sa kano kaya yung morality ng mga bata wala na , gusto natin yon, kasi magagaling ang mga lawmakers natin, kung ano ang panalo , yun na yun , kasalanan na naman ng mga pari kawawa naman sila. he he he 

    • Jane Tan

      Di rin naman tayo papayag ng divorce bill na walang mga “grounds”. Kung divorce lang kasi gusto ninyo, asa na papayagan natin yun.

      • tukmoldinako

        of course meron bang bill na walang grounds, magiging maayos ang pagkasulat, example , unhappy na tayo sa isat isa, lets call it “quits” just like that. wala na yung , till death do us part, in sickness or in poor” .  wala na yung tinatawag na kahit maputi na ang buhok mo, lol,  Love will have no meaning anymore.  kasi love ka lang ng lalake pag maganda ka, pag losyang kana, iiwanan ka na nya kasi he is not happy anymore with you dahil napakaraming magaganda dyan at batambata pa, diba,

        papasok na naman syempre ang simbahan at mababatikos na naman sya dahil nawawala ang sanctity ng marriage,  kung baga ang marriage ay magiging trial and error na lang,  pag error, iwan ka, sino ang palaging talo, yung babae at mga anak, lalo na sa panahon ngayon napakaraming lalaki na irresponsible and only wanting to enjoy and not the hardship of life. in the church the bond is thru a third party which is God. pag sumumpa kasa sa harap ng altar , sumumpa kasa sa diyos. so siguro pag nagpakasal ka sa ngayon , mabuti pa sa huwes nalang para sumumpa ka lang sa tao, pag iniwan ka nya hindi ka nagkasala sa diyos.

        sabi ko nga, its an off shoot of the RH Bill, where morality will be lost sooner  and it will just become a word of the past.  but anyway, we are just common tao and everyone has the right to give their comments

  • Lucas Gray

    I CAN’T WAIT FOR THIS BILL, GO FOR IT SEN PIA!

    • Trollollolloll

      Failed marriage ka rin ba? Lol.

  • TOMA_NA

    progressive legislation such as the Sin Tax, RH Bill and now the Divorce Bill is expected to receive the same support from the majority of the people. Ang tutol lang naman dito is expected na, RCC who else?

    If the RCC wants to live in the dark ages, then go ahead…wag nyo na kaming idamay sa gusto nyo. Again this bill if it comes to fruition not only benefits RCC folks but also other citizens of different religion.

    Wag nyo na muna asahan ang anti-dynasty bill kasi alam naman natin na apektado ang mga naka upo dyan at hindi sila susuporta dyan…political survival nila at stake lol

Mabuhay ang tinagurian PANGINOONG KANO (ang mga KANO ang nagpalaganap para WASAKIN at SIRAIN ang pagkaTOTO ng mga KATOLIKO, sila ang nagpakalat ng pagpupuri para magwagi ang kanilang nilikhang mga RELIGION), nag wagi ka sa iyong simulain na ipataguyod ang DEMOKRASYA. Ang Pilipinas ay di malayong babagsak na rin tulad ng AMERIKA at EUROPA. Magwawagi na ang KARAPATAN ng LAHAT. Pwede na rin simulan ang pagpaLAGANAP ng ATHEISTMO at SCIENTOLOGY sa mga tao. Ang mga nagpasimuno nito ay mayLAYUNIN simula pa man na dapat MAWALA sa MUNDO ang KATOLIKISMO dahil hadlang iyan sa kautusan ng kanilang PASTOR SATANAS. Ang Pastor na nagpapalaganap ng TUNAY na DEMOKRASYA. Tandaan ninyo sa LANGIT ay walang DEMOKRASYA! Si Angel Lucifer nga bumagsak dahil kinuwestion niya ang kakayahan ng TUNAY na PANGINOON. Ganon din sa PILIPINAS, Si Lucifer ay kahalintulad din sa mga tao nag UUDYOK ng kalayaan, karapatan at katalinuhan. MABUHAY kayo! NAGWAWAGI na ang mga tao para maihanda ang pagdating ni SATANAS. Ihanda na ninyo ang galing ng mga KULTO sa BIBLIYA na gawa din ni PASTOR SATANAS. MABUHAY ang DEMOCRACY (DEMON + CRAZY)

    Kaya ayaw ng mga karamihan dito kase ang mga lalake ang nakikinabang sa walang divorce bill, walang magawa ang mga babae lalo na kung nambababae ang mga asawa nila kase nakaugalian na sa pilipinas ito, pag nang babae ka macho ka, pag babae ka at nang lalake ka pokpok ka at malandi, hindi pa dito kasali ang mga inaabusong babae na walang magawa dahil walang divorce habang buhay silang dapat mag tiis, kung may divorce 2 isip na mga kamoteng lalake sa pilipinas kaya maraming tututol dito sa divorce bill na ito kung sakali, stereotypes men will definitely be against divorce bill and will post as catholic and use dogma for their defense.

    • Pitbulldog

      That’s a generalization about men’s thinking, Brod.  Di lahat ganyan ang pananaw.  There are a lot of women nowadays, educated and professional women who just prefer to have a child and not marry at all.  They stayed free from the bondage of marriage. So I can say as well that a lot of women are in favor of divorce as well.  Pero sa tinign mo ba, yan ay makaka-solve sa mga social ills ng bansa?  Gaya gaya lang naman talaga tayo sa ibang bansa e, lalo na sa America.  di naman tayo kasing yaman ng karramihan sa mga yan.  America is collapsing, socially, economically, politically dahil sa mga Democrats na ang linya ng pag-iisip ginagaya ng mga politiko natin.

      • 2doppey2

        Better to have divorce than many kabits. The most important thing about the divorce ay malaya ang isat isa at meron child support. Hindi lang ang babae ang nag dudusa mag palaki ng bata. Lalake ako at hindi ako tutol sa divorce. Tunkol sa America majority ng pinoy ay bumoto sa Democrats dahil gusto nila libre at supportahan ang mga bagay na kailangan nila. Miski liberated ang mga ibang babae sa atin ang meron sila anak at hindi kasal, tungkulin rin nang Ama mag supporta sa anak. If you want to improve for the better sometime you have to accept change. We will never know if we don’t try. I for one like to help women get out from the bondage of marriage from a missing spouse. I have a friend whose husband immigrated to the US got divorce and got married to get his papers. Wife stuck in the Philippines without a single cent of support for their child. Someone wanted to marry her but she is still legally married in the Philippines. She has a miserable life raising her kid without the father. 

      • Pitbulldog

        I am definitely sure, some of those who favor this bill are driven by carnal desires, not prudence.   But for those who value close family ties and unity, this bill is in for a rough sailing. It’s hard to imagine this country polpulated by “bassssstards” in the future and lead also by a bassssstard just like the US.  Some of the grusome crimes carried out in the US were committed by people who grew up in troubled, broken families.

      • 2doppey2

        And how about all the Rape/Slay in the Philippines. We also have alot of bastards in the Philippines. I have a cousin who has 5 kabits and goes to church every Sunday with his Kabits. Now tell is that right. I have met a lot of people women in the philippines that are single mothers with a husband living with another men. I have a friend who got rape got married to the guy who rape her and got separated. This is the right that each individual should have not you or I have the right to keep them in the bondage of marriage. It is their decision not ours to use this law as it see fit. I’m a single father with a dead beat mother who doesn’t support her kids.

      • Pitbulldog

        May point ang anti-Divorce group, may annulment naman tayo di ba?  Ba’t di na lang nila gawan ng paraan para i-simplify ang proseso nyan?  At least mas open pa ang Catholic church para pag-aralan at rebisahin yan di ba?  Napakatagal, mahal at ma-proseso ang annulment kasi sa atin ngayon.  Sa US kahit may Divorce man at matatag ang justice system nila, maraming di sumusunod dyan sa mga Divorce settlement.   Lalo na yong mga nakakariwasa pa mandin sa kanila dyan.  Ano pa kaya kung sa Pinas, mas lalong kawawa ang babae at mga anak diyan.

        E ikaw, ano ang gustung gusto mo sa divorce, siguro di ka masaya sa married life mo kaya atat na atat ka diyan.  Maraming panahon, laway at papel lang ang sasayangin niyang bill na yan.  Isipin mo na lang ang impact nyan sa kultura at tradisyon natin.  We will be More like the US na perverted na utak ng mga tao.  Free sex, etc.  Konting kibot lang at disgusto sa partner, divorce.  Konting di pagkakaunawaan lang, divorce na.  Ganyan kababaw ang mentalidad ng mga kano.  Gusto mo yan sa Pinas?

      Sa Revelations, inilalarawan ang embodiment ng church bilang isang harlot o pokpok o patutot. Tamang-tama naman dahil nakiki-apid sila sa political system. Ang political system naman ay inilarawan bilang mabangis na hayop na may 7 ulo at 10 sungay. Sa katapusan, niluray ng mabangis na hayop ang patutot.

      Kaya yung sinasabi mo, mangyayari talaga yan dahil nakahula na yan sa Bible (Revelation 17:1–18). Babalingan sila ng political system at wawasakin sila nito dahil sa masyado nilang pakiki-alam.

        When John introduces the Whore in Revelation 17, he tells us: “Then one of the seven angels who had the seven bowls came and said to me, ‘Come, I will show you the judgment of the great harlot who is seated upon many waters, with whom the kings of the earth have committed fornication, and with the wine of whose fornication the dwellers on earth have become drunk.’ And he carried me away in the Spirit into a wilderness, and I saw a woman sitting on a scarlet beast which was full of b.asphemous names, and it had seven heads and ten horns. The woman was arrayed in purple and scarlet, and bedecked with gold and jewels and pearls, holding in her hand a golden cup full of abominations and the impurities of her fornication; and on her forehead was written a name of mystery: ‘Babylon the great, mother of harlots and of earth’s abominations.’ And I saw the woman, drunk with the blood of the saints and the blood of the martyrs of Jesus. When I saw her I marveled greatly” (Rev. 17:1–6).

    After passing a bill that pushes for a “safe and satisfying sex life”, you think that it is time to pass the divorce bill. What’s next? Abortion bill, same-gender marriage bill, legalized prostitution bill, legalized pedophilia bill?
    What an orgasmic euphoria you must be having these days!

    I call on all Filipinos who wish to protect the sanctity of marriage to stand up for God.

    This is not the time to be indifferent. The jackals and wolves attacking the clergy are on hunting spree once more! The greed that infests our politicians grows like the dragon that whips its tail to demolish the basic structures of faith. We have to slay this dragon before it is too late.

      Your church is useless. It counts among its members 85 percent of Filipinos and yet this country is one of the most morally decadent countries in the world. It’s because its leaders are not concerned about spirituality but politics, not about its flocks becoming good Christians but how to continue ruling this country.

    Way overdue. This law is desperately needed mostly by women in abusive marriages.

    People who assert the country isn’t ready yet should provide an argument why the country is the only one without a divorce law (the Vatican is an irrelevant exception). It’s hard to believe we are really more culturally backward on this issue than African nations.

    As the RH bill has been passed, it’s time for Filipinos to introspect upon aligning our laws against reinforcing cultural hypocrisies. Much of what passes for anti-divorce arguments rely on moral hysterics and patronizing evasion.

    That being said, the passage of the RH bill thru the bicam panel and the FOI bill has to be prioritized over this. Let the candidates’ stand on divorce be raised as an election issue.

    Perhaps it should also be considered if the divorce bill can be placed on a referendum, to avoid congressional/senatorial obstructions. Same with the anti-political dynasty enabling laws.

      It’s the Church’s job to convince its followers that divorce, unnatural contraception and premarital sex are wrong.

      On the other hand, the Church and it’s members have the right provided by our constitution to oppose bills that for whatever reason. BUT once it becomes a law, it must be accepted and the Church should just continue convincing it’s followers to follow the “right path” – whatever that path may be according to a Church’s beliefs.

Western sila kaya alamin mo muna kung ano ang KULTURA nila. Kaya nga wala ng MORALIDAD sa mga tao nila. Sabagay iyan ang turo ni PASTOR SATANAS na ipalaganap ang DEMOKRASYA para magkasira sira ang pag kakaisa ng mga tao o lahat ay may karapatan sa lahat. Maykarapatan kayo na hindi SUMUNOD sa alituntunin ng DIOS. Mabuhay ang DEMOKRASYA (Demonyo + Sira ulo)

        DEMOCRACY CAN ONLY HAVE TRUE MEANING IF YOU HAVE A CHOICE. SO THIS DIVORCE LAW MUST PASS.

      IF A COUPLE LOVES EACH OTHER THEN DO NOT DIVORCE. BUT IF THE COUPLE DOES NOT LOVE EACH OTHER ANYMORE THEN THEY MUST DIVORCE AND FACE THE CONSEQUENCES.

      DO NOT LET THE BISHOPS AND PRIESTS DICTATE IF YOU SHOULD CONTINUE OR NOT WITH YOUR UNION. ALTHOUGH A LOT OF BISHOPS AND PRIESTS HAVE THEIR “QUERIDAS” , GIRLFRIENDS AND SECRET REALTIONS, THEY ARE NEVER MARRIED SO THEY DO NOT KNOW THE REAL SCORE.

    It’s better to just elevate good marriage. Good marriages last forever. Bad marriages end in separation AND stress for the children.

    All you have to do is find a way to separate the two.

    So just make marriage HARDER, so reckless people don’t make it up to that point. If you separate before you marry, then you don’t need divorce right?
    You need to prevent bad marriages from happening in the first place. For those who say, what if they have children before they make it there? That’s what the RH bill is for, right?

    High time to replace annulment with a divorce law. Annulment is a very tedious, expensive and a painful process that even the children will get involve.

    I personally know somebody who underwent annulment and his child was interviewed by the psychologist to give testimony about the supposed infidelity of the mother. Such experience could be very traumatic for the child.

Divorced yung magasawa sa matang legal, pero para sa simbahan mag-asawa pa rin sila, so bawal ikasal ulit. Anong problema dun? wala! Ang problema nyo kasi, nagkaron lang ng batas na hindi tugma sa relihiyon nyo, parang guguho na mundo. Wala namang pumipilit sa inyng mag pa divorce. Ewan ko bang pinuputok ng butsi nyo.

    it is high time that we have a divorce law in pinas. when a married couple fall out of love they should have a way out of the terrible situation they are in. when a spouse becomes involved with a third party romantically the marriage should be dissolve by divorce. annulment is not a reasonable solution and it is a very tedious and expensive way. it takes years and hundred thousand pesos for the whole process, which ordinary citizens can not afford.
    the catholic church in her hypocritical stand is against divorce without a valid reason for it. we are the only catholic country that has no divorce law; rome, italy & spain have divorce law. our politicians are cowards and could not say no to the usurping church officials. the separation of the church and the state is a sham. those priests, bishops, archbishops & cardinals should be charged for messing up with the administration of our country.

Can we send the deadbeats to jail?

      All the more reason we should have a law! The courts can order the employers of divorcees to automatically set aside x-amount to be released to the ex spouse as child support. This is one way. I’m sure we can think of other methods to ensure that the law will be followed.

Dont judge people na kesyo hiwalay sila masama na silang tao. Who knows battered wife pla sila or battered husband kaya sila nag divorced.

    re: “so why can’t you call it what it is? We loved each other, something went wrong, it’s done. Why will you say it never existed?”

    Senator Pia Cayetano is correct.

    If the process of annulment is already permitted in the Philippines, then the process of divorce must also be permitted to facilitate the facts in the accuracy of……love between a spouse that used to exist, but later in their marriage no longer existed.

    Meanwhile, Annulment only forces married couples to lie about their love to have never existed in order to separate.

      Omanolito, una ung nangyari sa Connecticut, it could be other reason bakit pumatay ng bata ung teenager. I am a product of divorce. I saw how my dad treated my mom when they were together. I am so much happier now for the two of them dahil at least wlang nasasaktan. I do regret minsan di buo pamilya ko nung bata ako pero its ok dahil at least hindi nagpatayan magulang ko. I am happily married with 3 kids now so to say the killings in the US is because of divorce is such far out. There are a lot of kids with divorced parents out there who is living a very fruitful life and I’m one of them. 2Nd, abortion will never ever fly here in the Philippines. Hetong rh na nga lng 13 yrs bago napasa ano p kaya pag abortion? Mentality sa ibang bansa particularly sa US ay iba sa pinas. Although we approved the rh, abortion is different. Ang US, at a young age, people are taught to be more open to other ideas. The US consist of many different races and different mentality. There are Europeans, Asians, blacks, Latinos, etc. Kaya ganyan more liliberal sa US dahil jan. Sa pinas iba. Catholicism is deeply imbeded sa mga pinoy so taking a life is such a no no. U will argue siguro na rh is pro abortion. Let me emphasize too na in order to have a fetus u need to have an egg abd a sperm meet plus fertilization. It will stop sa divorce after this rh. If in some odd way someone passes an abortion bill or same sex mariage bill, it will not be in our time.

    • Don Dee

      RH Bill is anti abortion. Do not be confused by the strawman fallacy arguments by those lying bishops. Contraception is different from abortion.

      • antiscam

         correct

      • Dieserweg

        If you don’t believe that life starts at conception, then you may be right it is not abortion.  Unfortunately ‘though, the Westchester Institute For Ethics & the Human Person as well as the University of Utah, School of Medicine thinks otherwise.  Even our very own Philippine Medical Association as well as our Constitution states that life starts at the moment of conception.  Ergo, a contraceptive with a 5% failure rate does abort a baby 5% of the time.  So if you have 1 M mothers on contraceptive, that is roughly around 50 thousand babies being aborted for just maybe a month.  Think about that.

      • Swiss_cheese23

        Where do life begins? When the sperm meets the egg and there is fertilization. So what does contraceptives do? Prevent the meeting of the sperm and egg. Where is abortion there? This is hs science fyi.

      • antiscam

         precisely.

      • Dieserweg

        We are talking about pills for contraception not condom. When a pill fails, it means breakthrough fertilization. Ibig sabihin 5% of the time hindi mapi-prevent ng pills ang conception, any doctor will tell you that. Medical interventions are never perfect. Here is where the real issue lies. What happens to the human being that was just conceived although still immature as a zygote? Normally, it will be implanted on the uterus. But the effect of the pill thins its (uterus) inner lining so that the baby won’t hold and will be wasted out to the urine, and dies. So there will be no baby to be put out for adoption as you were suggesting. Di nmn po sa nagyayabang, for more than 3 years nagtrabaho ako as a community organizer sa mga blighted communities. Its’ really disheartening what you see there. But i disagree on early sex education kasi nga it will sort of encourage youth to engage in sex dahil inabot na natin sa kanila ang means to prevent pregnancy. What will inhibit those many who are afraid to try because of the natural deterrence of pregnancy for sex. To save some and make sex a free for all, is hard to accept. Nasaan na ang pagiging unique ng Pilipino kung gagaya tayo ng gagaya sa Western culture, eh un na nga ang problema natin eh walang originality. Look at them, their society is disintegrating. mayaman nga pero sooner or later hindi na because everyone just wants to do their own thing. There is more to RH than meets the eye. I know because for some three years I was involved in implementing programs on RH. And God have mercy on us.

        Pills is a poison, designed to ‘kill’ the sperm so that it has no chance in meeting the egg cell…

      • Swiss_cheese23

        Yup it kills it. Does the sperm die on its when it doesnt meet an egg? Yes! A sperm is just a sperm and an egg is just ann egg. A sperm or an egg alone is not a fetus.

      • Don Dee

        BY DEFINITION, contraceptives PREVENT CONCEPTION. 5% failure rate (is this condoms?) means there will CONCEPTION. I am pro contraception but against abortion. If the contraceptives failed, sorry, but you will have to live with the consequences and carry the baby to term. If you do not wish to raise it after birth, you can always set if for adoption. (I am not as liberal as you would think). But yeah, I am definitely pro RH Bill, which is again, AGAINST ABORTION. Ano ba masama sa SEX EDUCATION? Punta kayo sa mga skwater sa commonwealth avenue, 13 year old girls, buntis. Tapos takot kayo bigyan yan ng sex education dahil bata pa? But they’re already having sex! Yan ang reality.

    Divorce will never work in the Philippines.Alimony to the wives after a settlement in divorce,i dont think so!! The filipino male will never settle for paying alimony,even at the risk of going to jail.The divorce law will be to complicated for the poor to understand,and only the poor husbands who cannot afford to pay alimony will go to jail.The rich with lawyers and their mistresses fighting tooth and nail against the poor wife,poor wife will not get anything.Wishful thinking on the divorce law,only the rich males will go for it,they will have all the resources to go around the law and not pay anything.Ok na yung annulment,its cheaper in the long run.Its just one payment to the legal system and it nullifies the union.

    • Swiss_cheese23

      Its good if you find someone who you really love and vise versa. Pano kung ang napangasawa mo pla nambubugbug or lasengero? Would u just tolerate that? Annulment is already legal pero sa mayayaman lang. Divorce is for those na hindi makaaford ng annulment.

      • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_DVP4NE2IHZLHNZIQODT3RNGNSM Lawrence

        mas importanteng tanong: Bat ka nagpakasal sa nambubugbog at lasengero.

        kung ang sagot ay: Hindi ko naman alam… e bat ka nagpakasal sa di mo kilala?

      • Swiss_cheese23

        Lol logic mo tol and reasoning very elememtary. Tao nagbabago di ba? Kahit ilang taon mo na bf gf pag naging asawa mo na nagugulat k p rin sa ibang ugali nya. Ung bf or gf mo p ang bait, sypre walang stress. Nung kayo na at may anak na kayo at dumating ang sangkatutak na stress dun mo nakita di pla kaya maka cope kaya Yun, umiinom, nambubugbog. Ang tao nagbabago po. Minsan nga eh asawa mo na ng ilang taon tapos biglang nakakitA ng iba at dahil bawal nga ang divorce nambubugbog nalang. I’m not even just the physical aspect but the emotional aspect too.

      • bugoybanggers

        Mali ka bata. Iyan nga naman ang turo ng mga PASTOR mo. Pag hiwahiwalayin ang pamilya. Ngayon isanguni mo na wala nalang kasalan, ano pa ba?

  • Swiss_cheese23

    If it was me na mambabatas, my first bill is to pass a no freebie bill to the church with re to taxes. Lahat magbabyad ng tax. Tutal nakikialam naman sila sa govt programs e di isali sila sa mga itatax. Ano kaya sasabihin ng cbcp? Oh I know….. there is a separation of the church and the state. Tingnan natin ano sazabihin nila lol.

    • reychop

       It’s actually dangerous this way. I first thought that taxing the church is a good way to get them to play by the rules. However, by taxing them, you legitimize their active participation in politics, resurrecting the governance of old wherein the church and the state is so intimately connected.

      On the other hand, the power of the church over the mass is weakening. If these were to happen, I only hope that reason prevails. Else, the Philippines will become a Chaotic Theocracy.

  • indiosbravos2002

    Natatakot ang CBCP because the current government has slingshot the country to the modern era. If the divorce bill passes, the church will feel inutile and Im not sure how Vatican will react for the failure of the current set of bishops to stop two progressive bills in the legislature.
    I dont think they anticipated the RH win given that the Vatican already made several favors to the country: by making Caungsod a saint and by making Tagle a cardinal. However, these two developments did not overshadow the RH bill nor did it weaken support for the bill.

    Hindi ako against sa divorce kung nanganganib ang buhay ng nasasangkot. Halimbawa, nambubugbog ang asawa, etc.

    Pero ang daming nagsasabi na ang annulment ay para sa mayaman samantalang ang divorce ay kakayaning gastusan ng pangkaraniwang mamayan. PAANO NIYO NALAMAN NA MAGIGING LESS COSTLY ANG DIVORCE?

    • Don Dee

      By lessening the “burden of proof”. Ang hirap kasi sa annulment, kailangan mo pang i-prove sa korte ang “psychological incapacity” (for example). Maraming versions ang divorce laws. I hope gawin nilang “no fault” version sa Pinas. Make it as simple as filing an official document.  

      • bugoybanggers

        Alam mo DON DEE, sa DIVORCE minadali ang pag hihiwalay ng mag asawa.. tama nga naman diba? Ngayon, ano na ang nasa utak ng marami? Yun naman pala bakit kailanagan pang magpakasal kung DIVORCE din pala ang patutunguhan. Iyan ang dahilan kung bakit ayaw ng RC sa ganong paraan, makikita mo ang sitwasyun sa WESTERN COUNTRY, madaling magpalit palit. Alam ko naman na isa iyan sa dahilan sa pagkawatak watak ng PAMILYA. O balik tayo sa pagkaWATAK WATAK.. tama nga naman turo iyan ni PASTOR SATANAS. Ang magkapareha ay may kanya kanyang layunin, sasabihin ninyo pinilit ni JUAN si JUANA? Malabo iyan, sila ang may kagustuhan ng kanilang pagpapakasal. Nagayon dahil sa DIVORCE, sa kunting alitan, hiwalayan agad ang nasa UTAK. Ang galing talaga ng mga KULTO, pinagpipilitan ang gusto ng kanilang PASTOR.

      • Don Dee

        Hmmm… so dahil pwede at madaling mag resign  o ma-fire ako sa trabaho, hindi na lang ako papasok ng trabaho dahil dun naman patungo yun. Either resign o fired. Ganun ba ang argument mo?

        First point, divorce is an option. It is not mandatory. Kung ayaw mong mag divorce, wag kang mag divorce.

        Second point, if your marriage is threatened by the mere existence of an opt-out clause, at the very least, you need to re-examine that partnership! I’m a happily married man. I see to it that my wife has the financial capacity to leave me anytime. That she chooses to stay with me, all these years, tells me a lot more than if I had  crippled her financially and only stays with me because she has no other choice.

        The availability of divorce makes better husbands.

      • bugoybanggers

        Hindi po, tumingin ka sa sitwasyun sa AMERIKA. Better wife? Better Husband? yeakkkkkssss.. nawawalan ng value ang true love. Ang nangyayari ay for SEXUAL PLEASURE na lang boy. Iyan ang resulta kung bakit ang IMORALIDAD SA WESTERN HEMISPHERE ay mararanasan narin ng PILIPINAS. kaya, hintayin mo na lang mararamdaman mo iyan at mararanasan mo sa mga anak mo. Okay, pasalamat ka sa naimulat mung DEMOKRASYA!

      • bugoybanggers

        Ang DIVORCE pwedeng palitan ng asawa. lalong nababoy ang buhay ng pamilya. MALINAW? Ikaw pakasal ka ngayon, mamaya napadaan ka sa INC-CENTRAL may magandang dilag na nagpa cute sa iyo. O ano na, napag isipan mo tuloy na mali ang pinakasalan mo kaya kabig DIVORCE agad. Iyan na nga ang nasa utak ngayon. WALA ng silbi ang pakasal kung DIVORCE din naman pala ang patutunguhan. Ano pa ba?

      • Swiss_cheese23

        What is the difference sa annulment or sa simple hiwalay? Kahit ngayon nangyayari yan. Divorce bill will make sure there are consequences kung ididivorce mo asawa mo at may support ka n dapat gampanan.

      • bugoybanggers

        Yun nga eh, ang kapasidad para suportahan ang mga EX. Kung kumikita lang ng 12000pesos si Sir, papano niya masusuportahan si MAM eh may bago na siyang MISS? Logic lang iyan, ang mga PILIPINO ay mahirap lang. Gusto lang kasi ng SEX, dahil sa inilathala ang bagong DIVORCE LAW. Lalo tuloy nakakaisip ang marami ng mga MAKAMUNDONG PANGNANASA. Ano pa kaya ang susunod? Nangyari na iyan sa TATE, kunting alitan PALIT agad!

      • Swiss_cheese23

        E di wag mag divorce kung di mo pla kaya suportahan dati mong asawa. Kung kaya mo suportahan ang bago mo pamilya bat di mo kaya ang dati mo asawa? So ano plano mo? Hiwalayan mo nalang asawa mo dati at magpaka sasa ka sa bago witjout Ny remorse or penalty? Divorce is a penalty sa mga taong ganyan.

      • bugoybanggers

        iyun ang mangyayari! Dapat magpakatotoo ka. Ang mga PILIPINO ay walang kakayahan! Lalong masisiraan ng ULO ang mga tao dahil sa ganitong DIVORCE law. Hala hiwalayan na lang, ano pa.. hindi naman talaga kayang magsuporta. Tama nga. Kayabangan lang kung makulong dahil mismo mga PULIS ay ganon din.. patas ka dapat sa katutuhanan.

    Mabuti pa yung mga ninuno natin, mas mature ang pagtingin sa pagaasawa. Mayroon silang konsepto ng trial marriage, kapag hindi umubra ang relasyon during the trial marriage pwedeng maghiwalay ang magasawa at maghanap ng iba. The Roman Catholic concept of marriage is so medieval and backward.

    • bugoybanggers

      Hindi kasalanan ng RC ito. Ang sisihin mo ang nagPAKASAL. Bakit banat ka ng banat? Nakikialam ba ang mga PARI sa panliligawan ng dalawa? Alam ba ng mga PARI ang buhay mo na nanliligaw ka kay JUAN? Aba  boy isip muna bago ka banat. Tumbukin ang dalawang magpapakasal at wag kang bintang ng bintang.

      Yung trial marriage ang obsolete. Kasi live-in ang tawag nyan ngayon. Kaya obsolete din yang prinsipyo mo kasi nuong pa yan ng caveman pa tayo. Ng dumating ang Bibliya kasama si Hesus duon nahusgahan ang mga maling gawain at prinsipyo ng tao. Kaya tinawag ang Bibliya na The Great Book of Life or The Way kasi andun ung kailangan lang na principles para mabuhay ang tao. Walang Labis, Walang Kulang. Complete na. Ang prinsiyong labag sa Bibliya ay obsolete dahil nahusgahan ito sa history ng Bibliya. Bakit Ibabalik pa ang maling prinsipyo ng Divorce Law, RH, Same Sex Marriage, Man-Animal Marriage, Abortion, etc.

    Ingat tayo kay Sen. Pia Cayetano mga kapatid, si EBA rin ang nag-udyok kay ADAN na kainin ang MANSANAS ng KASALANAN. Malamang Espiritu ni EBA ang nasa katauhan nya. Hindi parin matuto itong si EBA sa kanyang mga kasalanan. Pati “Satisfying Sex” para sa babae e isinama sa batas. Lagot ang mga impotent na mga asawa ngayon… sa Batas ni Ms. Cayetano. Ganun naba kahirap tayo ngayon at kailangan pa isa-batas ang “Satisfying Sex”. Mainam pa siguro “Satisfying Love” kesa “Satisfying Sex”.
    Isunod na natin yung makamundong “Satisfying Drink”…. lagot naman ngayon yang mga nagbebenta ng juices, softdrinks, alak, etc. Pag hindi itong mga konpanya makapagbigay ng ganuon na sensation sa inumin nila, patawan din ng kaukulang parusa.

    Itong mga bagay-bagay tulad sa sex, pagino, paghinga, pagkain, etc. ay puede na sana sa law of nature. Hindi na lahat kailangan isabatas kasi may mga programa naman ang gobyerno dyan bahala na ang mga local government sa kanilang pag-prioritize. Kung gusto ng isang Munisipyo ng libreng condom, may konseho naman, sila na ang magdesisyon at alam nila kung ano ang puede sa kanila. Halimbawa sa tribu ng mga Mangyan o Aeta, ipilit ba natin ang RH sa kanila na paubos na nga lahi nila? Yung mga lugar na gusto ng population control gaya ng Metro Manila, ay sila ang magpatupad ng population control. pero duon sa probinsya gaya ng naibsan ng tao dahil sa bagyong PABLO sa Compostela Valley at iba pang bagyo, ipilit parin ba? Federalize na natin ang Pilipinas para maayos at mahimay natin ang batas na pambansa sa batas pang probinsya. FEDERALIZATION is the WAY.

Andun sya sa history ng tao sa mundo kaya bakit gagawin ulit ang kasalanan nahusgahan na. Rehash na ang mga issues gaya ng mali-maling divorce sa history ng tao. Masyado matigas ang ulo mo kasi kaya ganyan ka. Ang Book of Life ay nakalahad na lahat ang kasagutan sa problema ng buhay. Wag isipin masyado ang makamundong “SEX” kundi yung makalangit na “LOVE”. Kaya hindi mo maramdaman ang “sex” kasi inu-una mo sya sa “love”. Priority love muna tapos dun lang kayo may “satisfying sex”. Know the natural laws of man or woman if your sexist.

      • Swiss_cheese23

        Lol nabobobo ako sayo bro. Tlaga ha sa biblia lahat ng sagot sa problema ng lipunan. Fyi the laws of men are objectively done and not subjective. U cannot make a law that will pertain to emotions. How can u define emotion in a court of law? Nagmahal sya? In what way? The law will need subjective cues. Kaya blindfolded ang batas dahil hindi ito pinaiiral ang emotion. It should be all objective with facts. E kung puro nalang emotion ang pwedeng gawin basihan e di hindi mananagot ang mfagaling umarte. Listen to urself.

      • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_7RFIF3RZOLMXTVBEM5R2ZCC2TI Lemuel

        Listen to yourself talaga lang. How do you get “Satisfying Sex”. How to qualify “satisfying sex”? Thru actions sabi mo? Anong position ang satifying, ganuon? O dahil sa subjectivitity ng feeling of love. Kaya nga sabi ko absurd ang isabatas ang satisfying sex. Yun ang point. Diiing!!!! Now the bulb is lighting up eh?

      • Swiss_cheese23

        Wow, no contest here. This is a waste of time. This is out of context sa topic. Take ur pills and come back in the morning. Read what the topic is and shout out an opinion. The laws of men are different from country to country, race, customs and tradition. U cannot enforce a law based from the bible which can be interpreted in so many ways. Laws needs to be precise and objectively made. To pass a law of “love” is ideal but it does not make sense in a world like ours. That is the reason why the lady of the law is blindfolded. It cannot afford to pass a judgment based on emotions. U sir is living in an era of the past. Having said this piece I will now refrain any more from answering any irrelevant issues that you might point out after this. Fyi aslo not everyone is catholic and knows the bible. I am catholic but I question teachings that does not apply to peoples lives at this day of age. Goodnight to u sir.

Lumabas ka sa comfort zone mo at pumunta ka sa probinsya at makita mo ang tunay na paghihirap. Statistics at puro libro ng tao. There’s more to life than what you read in books.

      • http://profile.yahoo.com/7MIFXOK36HIQOQS4EKUFLDIYQY Kino

        Lemuel, kailangan mong tignan ang konteksto kung saan mismo nagsimula ang librong pinagbabasehan mo ng iyong moralidad. Kung ang sina-cite mo ay galing sa Old Testament, kailangan mong tandaan na nagsimula ang mga kwento ng Old Testament base sa oral traditions sa Israel at Jewish mythologies, bago naisulat. Kailangan mo ring tandaan na mula sa napakaraming teksto mula Judeo-Christian tradition, pinili lang ang mga mga ipapasok sa Roman Catholic bible, na maaaring iba ang canon sa Eastern Catholic Bible, Eastern Orthodox Bible o Protestant Bible.

        Ang Ibis sabihin, kailangan mong tandaan na nakaugat ang pagsulat at pagsama sa canon ng mga libro ng bibliya sa kontekstong ginagalawan ng siyang mga nagsulat o namili dito. Ibig sabihin, maaaring magbago ang values ng society depending on the context, at dahil diyang ay kakailanganing mag-adjust ang relihiyon sa kung ano ang norm, kung hindi ay maaaring hindi magpatuloy ang relihiyong ito.

        Halimbawa, napakaraming kwento ng incest sa Leviticus 18, Leviticus 20 at Deutoronomy (pinakanatatandaan ng karamihan ang kwento ni Lot at ang kanyang dalawang anak na babae). Si Solomon naman ay nagkarron ng mahigit sa 700 na asawa at 300 na concubines. Ibang-iba rin ang Diyos na naipinta sa Old Testament (na very vengeful and violent) kumpara sa New Testament. Dahil dito, makikitang sa daang taong lumipas mula nang naisulat ang old testament, marami na ang nabago sa lipunan ng mga Hudyo nang sinulat ang New Testament, kaya’t hindi na nakagugulat na maraming contradicting stories dito.

        Ito rin ang dahilan kung bakit maraming bagay sa Old Testament ang hindi na natin sinusunod ngayon (lalo na ang parte ng Leviticus). Naka-ugat kasi ang mga iyon sa kontekstong heograpikal, historikal at politikal ng Israel, at maaaring hindi na ayon sa takbo ng kasalukuyang global na lipunan.

        Sinabi mong “There’s more to life than what you read in books. Experience makes the whole learning process complete.” Tama iyon. Ngunit kailangan mong tandaan na dapat laging i-analisa ang iyong mga karanasan. Kailangang maging malay tayo sa ating mga ginagawa at paniniwala, at kailangang kwestunin ang pinagmumulan ng mga paniniwalang iyon, upang lubos na maliwanagan.

        Happy Holidays to you, Lemuel. :)

        Napasobra bro ang pagaaral mo sa Bibliya. Tandaan lahat ng sobra ay kasalan na. AVARICE ang tawag dun. Ang nangyari sayo sa sobrang aral ay parang kumain ka ng siopao na dimo nalasahan ang laman nito dahil napasobra ang sakmal mo tapos sabay lunok. Kung kumakain dapat saktong kagat lang at nguyain mo ng mabuti para malasahan mo lahat ng sangkap nito. Sa Bibliya bawat kagat at nguya nnto sambit mo lagi ang Espiritu Santo. Hindi ang iyong sariling espiritu at talino ang dapat mangibabaw kundi Espiritu ng Diyos. Kasi kung ikaw at ng iyong sakim na interes ang mangibabaw ay magkakasala ka dahil sa pride.

        Another thing, fyi not all the books that was made by Christ’s disciples were able to make to the bible that we have now. Everything was edited in the 1500 century. Not all popes were voted conscientiously. Some were placed to be popes after being bribed by rich politicians. Catholicism is a very noble and perfect religion. It is a peaceful religion and very ideal. What makes it look bad is the people who runs it. Having said that, man is not perfect so to see some irrational teachings is justifiable to questoon.

    Oo, ang tao nagbabago…edi lalong hindi dapat tayo magpakasal kung yan ang dahilan dahil alam mo palang magbabago sya at maaring hindi mo magustuhan.

    Sa tingin ko kasi, ang deborsyo ang magiging first option imbes na last option pag naisabatas to.

    Unting problema sa pera…deborsyo
    Hindi magkaanak…deborsyo

        Good point. So its more of an economic consideration?

        Correct me if I’m wrong, pero sa child support, diba may existing tayo na batas (it escapes me at the moment), na pag ang pangalan mo ay nasa birth certificate bilang magulang ay dapat mo talaga supportahan ang anak nyo?

        Not necessarily the case. Kung meron man its very vague. Divorce will determine how mich support and until when. It also will guarantee even visitatoon between parents kung pareho magulang equal rights sa bata or mga bata. Nangyayari sa pinas pag naghiwalay, kung sino ang may kaya dun napupunta ang bata at kadalasan tinatago ng magulang ang anak nila para di makita ng isang magulangn

        Mahirap ito, kung sa support ang pag UUSAPAN. Ngayon, kung okay na ang DIVORCE papano mo masisiguro na kaya ng LALAKE na suportahan ang kanyang dati? Sa tingin mo ba mayaman ang buhay ng isa? Aba, PILIPINAS po ito, parang pakiramdam ninyo AMERICA tayo. ISIPIN mo muna ang income ng lalaki wag banat ng banat. 90% sa mga kalalakihan ay walang kakayahan suportahan HABANGBUHAY ang kanyang EX. Malabo pa sa sinsabi ninyo na kayang pilitin ayun sa BATAS.

        Its not just support ang pinaguusapan kundi ang pakanan ng asawa at anak. Ying mga sinabi mo, isa yan sa mga hindrance kung kaya ayaw ng iba ang divorce. Kung di kaya sumuporta financially there are others means of support sa asawa and anak example in terms of service depende sa pag uusapan sa divorce. Ito protection ng hihiwalayan, may masasabi ka sa asawa mo na kung hihiwalayan mo ako heto gusto ko. Kung di kaya gawin ng taong mag didivorce there are other ways to get support. In other words if u divorce someone there are consequences. Kung wla divorce e di libre nalang ang gusto humiwalay sa kung ano gusto nya. Wlang support, wala lahat. Kung may pera sya kukunin nya lang mga anak nya na walang magagawa ang asawa nya

        @Swiss. Gawa kanalang ng foundation na para sa babae o lalake na hiwalay sa kanilang asawa at para matugunan ang pangangailangan nila kasama ang mga bata nila. Gusto mong tumulong diba?. Yan ang solusyon sa problema mo. Solved. Wag na idamay ang buong bayan sa individual issues.

      @Lawrence.
      Tama ka bro sa iyong analogy! Simple lang na problema pero sa over-analysis ng mga “intellectuals kuno” naging complicated. Naisalahad na sa Bibliya ang mga kasagutan ng problema ng tao. Ngunit gusto ng mga makamundong tao, lahat ng convenient fix para sa lifestyle na gusto kaya ipinipilit ang sariling idolohiya para maging katanggap-tangap sa mata ng sociedad o lipunan imbes na sa mata ng Diyos. Dapat kasi isa-ulo lagi ang K.I.S.S. (Keep It Simple Stu_id).

    Along with Pia Cayetano, another woman who will benefit from this divorce bill is Kris Aquino since she is known to have  broken marriages here and there. so i wouldnt be surprised if her brother Pnoy would certify this bill as urgent as well.
