Speaker Alvarez, To File "Flash Separation" Bill to dissolve Loveless, Unhappy Marriage

Getting married is simple and easy but getting out is painful, expensive and a long process. The Philippines is the only country in the world without divorce. Annulment is available but expensive. These are common reasons why some people stay in a marriage in spite of being unhappy and loveless.  With this, House Speaker Pantaleon Alvarez offers a solution to end the suffering of both parties staying in a dysfunctional married life.  According to Alvarez, the bill for dissolution of marriage will be his advocacy in the second regular session of the 17th Congress.





Getting married is simple and easy but getting out is painful, expensive and a long process. The Philippines is the only country in the world without divorce. Annulment is available but expensive. These are common reasons why some people stay in a marriage in spite of being unhappy and loveless.

With this, House Speaker Pantaleon Alvarez offers a solution to end the suffering of both parties staying in a dysfunctional married life.

According to Alvarez, the bill for dissolution of marriage will be his advocacy in the second regular session of the 17th Congress.






Under his proposal, parties will be spared from the painful process of annulment by allowing couples to jointly petition a court for the dissolution of their marriage. 

Alvarez explained this is not a divorce bill but merely seeks to free couples from an unhappy marriage.

In an instance that one of the spouses refuse the dissolution, the other spouse can still petition a court on the ground of unhappiness.

According to the house speaker, the bill won't undermine the institution of marriage and will, in fact, reinforce it because it will compel couples to work on keeping their marriages happy.






Even if the bill has not yet reached in Congress, some sectors already criticized the proposal of House speaker.

For Buhay Rep. Lito Atienza the planned bill “totally removes” the “genuine essence of marriage.” Atienza added that the bill will destroy the sanctity, respect, and value of the family.

Gabriela Party-list Rep. Emmi de Jesus also cried foul over the proposal for dissolution of marriage, pointing out that the term “unhappy” used in the bill is “very subjective.”


Archbishop Oscar Cruz, Judicial Vicar of the National Appellate Matrimonial Tribunal of the Catholic Bishops’ Conference of the Philippines (CBCP), also expressed dissent against the bill.

He then stressed that children are the first victims of failed marriages.
