Really, I don't want more families to be broken, that is why I am not in support to have divorce legalized in the Philippines.
First, Filipino culture puts high regards to the value of family. And the reason for this is the fact that we are family- centered and we do everything for our families. With divorce, we would give a legal option for parents to part ways and break their family. Thus, perpetuates the idea that the family as the basic unit of our society where culture is first cultivated can be ideally broken.
Second, marriage is entering into a sacred contract which involves God. Divorce disregards the sanctity of marriage. Giving a legal means for the spouses to easily marry again and possibly doing it over and over again would question the said contract.
And third, it's also an issue on the children concerned. There would be much effect to the children seeing their parents remarry. Divorce supports such emotional abuse to the children.
Besides, conflicts are indispensable in the course of married life and breaking the vow is never the panacea.
I don't advocate separation of family members.
I don't support brokenness.
I want to see families in tact.
Divorce should not be made an option.
