First and foremost

First and foremost, what is divorce and why do couples agree on it? Oxford Dictionaries (2015) defines divorce as “the legal dissolution of marriage by a court or other competent body”. In this, many factors can be blamed like a lack of commitment and equality in the relationship, infidelity, marrying too young, and abuse (Utah State University, 2015). According to the Philippine’s Solicitor General’s office, 9,117 petitions for annulment filed in 2010, women filed 61 percent of it. With the traditional mindset of the Philippines we are not yet ready for it even the pro divorce have good points. The Divorce Bill would permit the individuals to be free of their unhappy and most of the time abusive marriages. But even though people should have the right to leave a bad marriage, divorce should not consider as an option or solution.
