Legalize Divorce in the Philippines

This petition had 25 supporters

The sacrifice of one's self for the sake of sanctity should be abolished. I treasure marriage myself just as much as I hope all of you do. I swore to myself that I will marry only one guy all throughout my life but this is not for me. We need to start confronting the realities of marital and family life of Filipinos here in the Philippines and abroad. This is to help the country to move forward as we also help our fellow citizens to move forward. This is for all the people suffering. This is for the thousands of victims of physical and mental abuse, maltreatment and battering. This is to protect everyone from further pain and torment. This is for the children. “These children must be spared from the stigma attached to being ‘illegitimate,’ and their parents’ faults must not be passed on to them. It is the state’s responsibility to shield them from unwarranted shame and discrimination.” (Revilla, 2004)
