Standing by her position against   divorce, Senator  Nancy Binay  has instead advised  everyone  against  rushing into marriage.

“Huwag magmadaling magpakasal kasi mahirap makipaghiwalay,”  Binay said  in an interview at her  office  on Thursday.

The senator made the remark when asked to comment on the proposed dissolution of marriage in the country which is moving forward in the House of Representatives as it starts its deliberations on it   in the plenary.

 But Binay remained firm that there was no need to have such a measure as there are already existing legal remedies available for “unhappy” couples such as   annulment and legal separation.

When told how difficult it is to seek an annulment in the country, the senator said:  “E di ibig sabihin  nun wag kang magpapakasal …”

House Bill No. 6027 or “An Act Providing for Grounds for the Dissolution of a Marriage” filed by  Speaker Pantaleon Alvarez  allows   “irreconcilable differences” or “severe and chronic unhappiness” as grounds for marriage dissolution.
