Divorce bill umusad na

By: - 02/05/2020

UMUSAD na ang panukalang absolute divorce.

Sa pagdinig ng House committee on family relations inaprubahan ang pagbuo ng technical working group upang pag-isahin ang tatlong panukalang batas kaugnay ng divorce.

Iginiit ni Albay Rep. Edcel Lagman na ipasa kaagad ng komite ang panukala dahil naaprubahan na ito sa ng Kamara noong nakaraang Kongreso.

([This) should be prioritized and may be disposed of as matters already reported upon the approval of majority of the members of the committee present, there being a quorum,” ani Lagman na isa sa pangunahing may-akda ng panukala.

Si Lagman ang mangunguna sa binuong TWG.

Tinutulan naman ni House Deputy Speaker at CIBAC Rep. Eddie Villanueva ang panukala sa paniwala na makasisira ito sa pagiging sagrado ng pamilya.

“The passage of a divorce bill is practically unnecessary for two reasons. First, it does not address issues of high cost of litigation and slow-grinding disposition of cases, which are the real problems encountered by those seeking relief from troubled marriages, particularly poor petitioners. Secondly and more importantly, it is a clear defiance to God and to the Constitution because it will terribly degrade the sacrosanctness of marriage as an inviolable institution,” ani Villanueva.

Sinabi ni Villanueva na hindi divorce ang solusyon para makawala sa hindi magandang pagsasama, mabagal na pagresolba sa mga kaso ng annulment at mahal na gastos rito.

“The divorce bills filed in Congress simply enumerate and consolidate remedies for broken marriages already existing in our current laws. That is why the divorce bill is unnecessary. Worse, it just makes marriage ‘cheap’ because the grounds it qualifies as bases for divorce are shallow and not in favor of the strengthening the families – which is what the Constitution and various jurisprudence of the court decree,” dagdag pa ni Villanueva.
