Divorce in the Philippines

Another hot issue that the members of congress are debating is to legalize the Bill of Divorce. As we all know Philippines is dominated with Roman Catholics.  And the church will not allow this bill to pass because the sacrament of marriage will no longer practice.  They said you made a vow to the people and most especially to God that you will stay with your husband or your wife through richer or poorer, in sickness and in health till death do you part.  As a catholic I respect their stand on that issue.  But reality bites, battered women are increasing nowadays because they are sticking in their so called marriage vow. Women experiencing adultery with their husbands. What kind of a human being those man who leave their wife just for another woman. It's like a garbage trash. When you're done you can throw it anywhere or leave whenever you want to. I'm on the women side who wants their freedom.  Freedom to be respected by other people and freedom to love.  I also want their dignity and respect back in their selves. The question to ponder on is that is there martyr left in this world? And how long will you stay in the marriage were you're no longer happy? Catholic Bishop Conference of the Philippines could you please think about this situation!
