Discussions on the Divorce Bill in Philippines
The real issue here is about giving every Filipino citizens the right to decide for themselves and not because we want to follow other country. Divorce law are for those who are not happy and is miserable on their marriage life... lets face it, that the only one who could really decide whether they want to stay in the marriage union are the couple themselves because they are the one's who knew exactly what kind of life they are living inside their roof, who are we to judge these people about being immoral for wanting divorce just because they made a mistake choosing the person to be with for the rest of their life?
To all of you who doesn't want divorce, no one is forcing you to get a divorce for yourself, maybe it's not important in your life, but who knows? Maybe one day, one of your generations would need this divorce bill. Lets stop using morality as an excuse. If you are a sinner, you are a sinner even if you don't get a divorce, so good luck to those who are narrow minded about divorce bill because whether you admit it or not surely one of in your generations or up coming generations will surely will have a miserably married life and you are one of those who deprived them to have their right to choose for themselves.
Give me a break of your so called "morality." The government's role is not to uphold morality within YOUR families. Their task is to provide chances of living a better life. In the end, it is all up to us. The government will not prosecute it if we won't go into divorce. If you want morality and values to prevail, then be a good citizen by yourself. Show a good example to your children, to your neighbors. Start within your homes and give those living in a miserable relationship a chance! Don't be so assuming that everyone is happy.
