Milan -based Pinoys reacts on Divorce bill

 

altMILAN, Italy –  House bill 1799 or the Divorce bill is gathering different reactions from Filipinos here.

If  the SWS survey  result last March on Divorce bill  showed 50% of Filipinos back home supports the controversial bill, most of the Filipino here  also say yes.

Each has his own reason in supporting the bill.

Ruel Llanto , the Secretary/Treasurer  of the Batangas Varsitarian said  it will be better if the bill will be passed into  law so that former couple  who separate ways will have better options and good raport will be maintained .

“Bakit mo pahihirapan ang sarili mo at ang babae’ng dati mo’ng minahal, di ba?  Kaya ok lang na maisabatas yan para di na kayo kapwa masaktan”  Llanto added.

Nelson Lahara, a member of  the same  fraternity said  “ para sa  kapakanan ng mga tao’ng  hindi na magkasundo ay dapat lang ipatupad ang diborsyo  dahil mahirap magsama ang dalawang tao’ng hindi na magkasundo.”

 The increasing rate of  illegitimate  children will be prevented if divorce bill will be implemented    Maki Espelata  said.

“Alam naman natin pagka nagkakaroon ng diperensya ang mag-asawa di ba sa hiwalay napupunta, nangyayari nagkakaroon ulit ng panibagong kinakasama, nagkaka-anak ulit, nadami ang illigetimate child, kaya para sa akin mas maganda ang may divorce”  Espeleta  said.

However ,  there are  also those  who  oppose  the bill.  They  strongy support the  catholic churh’s  fight against  divorce.  Most of them are the Sunday church-goers couples.  

They  said that  if divorce  will be implemented  in the Philippines, it  may cause the  immorality  of the entire country.

The added  that it is the  Filipino  pride that  the Philippines is the only country  where there is no  divorce.

They are also calling on the attention of the bill makers to focus on more important issues that need to be solved  than screwing  themselves into passing the  divorce bill.(By:  Zita Baron)
