They say, 'NO DIVORCE IN THE PHILIPPINES'

President Benigno Aquino III
“Definitely I cannot support something like what you do in Las Vegas, yung stereotype that you get married in the morning, you can get divorced in the afternoon...I do recognize that there have been unions that were wrong, that no matter what interventions are done, no matter what counseling is done, they really cannot stay together. There is danger to either one or both parties in the marriage especially the children.  Divorce is a no-no. But in legal separation, you can assert that there really are irreconcilable differences..."




Parañaque Rep Roilo Golez
"Look at what’s happening in other countries with divorce. Half of my classmates at Annapolis ended up divorcing a few years after they got married, many because of flimsy reasons by their own admission"

Eastern Samar Rep. Ben Evardone
“We must continue to work for the preservation of the sanctity of marriage and the family. Legalizing divorce might encourage or promote destruction of families."








Cavite Rep. Elpidio Barzaga
"It would also encourage married couples who have differences to immediately seek divorce, though differences can still be reconciled. Moreover, I anticipate that the various churches in the Philippines would lobby against the bill. I still adhere to the biblical saying that what God had joined together, let no man divide it . Therefore, I vehemently object the bill."

Marikina Rep. Romero Federico Quimbo
"I believe it will not prosper as there is an overwhelming majority of congresspersons who believe in the sanctity of the family and its preservation as primary fabric of society....The solution is to make these laws more accessible and equitable. The solution is not to make dissolution easier through divorce. The state should spend more resources counseling and advicing couples especially the poor who don’t have access to psychiatrists. Preservation, not destruction of the family."

Aurora Rep. Juan Edgardo Angara
“Kapag nagkaroon g divorce law, tayo ay magiging tulad ng ibang bansa na kung saan basta na lang magpapakasal dahil alam na may divorce at di seseryosohin. May mga epekto din ito sa magiging mga anak ng mag-asawa."




Clifford Sorita, Sociology Professor, Philippine Women’s University
“Try to resolve the issues. Ang problema sa ating gobyerno, they don’t look at the sanctity and sacredness of this individual process na ginagawa natin....Kapag binibilisan mo ang isang bagay, eh tinatanggal mo ang isang proseso. Ibig sabihin, resolving problems, conflicts and issues ay hindi mareresolba ‘pag ginawa mo itong madalian...Ang kasal kasi sabi nga hindi parang mainit na kanin na kapag isinubo at napaso iluluwa. Kailangan marriage is something you have to work upon kailangan pinag-aaralan mo...Malaki din ang impact yung tinatawag na public personalities and how they deal with their marriages. Kasi lumalabas na ‘pag sila ang nagkaroon ng relasyon, yung mga artista para bagang in their own relationship mabilis silang palitan. So since sila ay mga may pangalan, sa mga bata parang okey din lang"

Archbishop Emeritus Oscar Cruz
Salamat sa Diyos dahil ang Pilipinas wala pang divorce law. Ang ating kultura at ugali ay makapamilya. Hindi pa kasama dito ang relihiyon. Napakaimportante sa ating mga Pilipino ang pamilya....The RH, divorce, and same sex bills are connected. Whether he endorses it or not, it is in his program. It's his people in Congress. Sana mali ako. Ang hirap paniwalaan ang Presidente kasi for one month, ang sinasabi at ginagawa hindi magkadugtong. Iba ang ginagawa sa sinasabi...Itong gobyerno ito ay gustong pasukin ang kwarto ng asawa, sirain ang tahanan at pati kalikasan. Kahit 1,000 beses man ang ikasal lalaki sa kapwa lalaki hindi ito legal at hindi dapat mangyari...Gusto kong tanungin ang mga nagsusulong sa divorce bill - Ilang asawa ang pwede kong iwanan? Ilang tahanan ang pwede kong sirain? At ilang anak ang pwede kong iwanan? Tandaan na ang unang biktima ng divorce ay ang mga bata"

Fr. Melvin Castro, executive secretary of the CBCP Episcopal Commission on Family and Life
"They divorce their first, second, third spouses because they have this image of the ideal spouse. If the marriage falls short of that image, they will separate...If a court proves that there is psychological incapacity, the marriage is annulled. But then why should they be allowed to marry again? We just pass on the problem to the next marriage. Ang pinakamaganda - couples must know each other better before marriage...."It is very unfortunate what happened in Malta but it also makes us even more resolved to protect the institution of marriage."

Archbishop Antonio J. Ledesma of Cagyan de Oro City 
 “Legalizing something that is immoral will not make it right, but will instead make it worse...The sacrament of marriage is something that is meant for a life-long commitment, for the good of the children and the community. It is no longer just an individual kind of freedom because marriage itself is a social contract....Legalizing divorce is another way of saying that the lifelong commitment of marriage is no longer viable."



Puerto Princesa Bishop Pedro V. Arigo  


“There are more important issues to address."




Bishop Teodoro Bacani

"Ilang babae kaya ang haharap sa altar at magsasabing "Mamahalin kita hanggang divorce lang?....Ang kasal ay hindi ginawa ng tao kundi binigay sa tao...Sabi ng pangulo, tayo na sa daang matuwid. Sabi ng Diyos I HATE DIVORCE...Sabi ng ilan wala dapat kinalaman ang relihiyon sa pagsasabatas, pero sa saligang batas we invoke the aid of Almighty..."





Bernadette Herrera-Dy


 "Marriage should be protected by the state. Ang kasal dapat forever, pinag-iisipan bago pasukin....Sinasabi nila mahal at matagal ang annulment. Ganun din naman ang divorce. Hindi ito solusyon...."






CBCP Episcopal Commission of Family and Life Atty. James Imbong

"Laws are for the common good. Common good ba ang pagbuwag ng pamilya at magsira ng mga buhay ng mga anak?"
 Evangeline Pascual

 "Hindi dapat gibain ng divorce ang anumang dapat buuin ng mag-asawa. For a family to get peace, there should always be love"







TV host Jojo Alejar
" We have all these intellectual discourse about divorce bill but we fail to see and put God into the equation...We will lose the sanctity of marriage, diminished to a level of commodity than commitment..."








Richard Gomez 

"if we don't have divorce in our country why do we have to be like other countries that have it? Ano Ito makagaya lang?"








Sen. Francis Escudero 
 "Against ako sa nakita kong probisyon on  divorce dahil pinapadali lamang nito ang divorce. Para sa akin, importante gawing mas accessible at gawing mas affordable ang annulment. Sa ngayon, mayayaman lang ang nagpapa-annul dito sa Pilipinas. Ang mahihirap, naghihiwalay na lamang at nagli-live-in pagkatapos pero may batas naman tayo kaugnay ng annulment...Ang nais nilang ground pag nanggugulpi ka daw, kung lasenggo ka at kung adik, pwedeng mag-divorce. Ang problema sa divorce, pwedeng mag-asawa pareho. So yung dating nanggugulpi, iba naman gugulpihin. Yung dating lasenggo, iba naman yung kasama niya habang lasing siya. Yung dating adik iba na naman ang kasama niya habang adik siya."
