Not really, napakamahal ng process and takes years. Also kelangan pang majustify ang annulment which is mahirap ang requirements.
Divorce is much better and should be affordable and easier to all.

Why would you want an easy way out of marriage?


The family is the foundation of our society. Strong family bonds are needed to build a strong nation. This is the principle kung bakit mahirap ang requirements to justify annulment -- para mag-isip-isp muna bago maghiwalay. Ang paghihiwalay ng mag-asawa ay hindi dapat gawing madali. Kaya nga hindi dapat basta-basta nag-papakasal in the first place. At kung may problema ang pagsasama bilang mag-asawa, pagtiyagaan na ayusin muna dahil napakahirap magpa-annul.

Yes for me.  Annulment and the others are not really options because 1) they take years and 2) really expensive.  Tapos ang underlying basis pa ng mga yan is that one of the parties is "psychologically incapacitated".  It means you have to point out that 1 of you is at fault. It doesn't capture the reality that sometimes 2 people really are not meant for each other, or that they were at the start but have gorwn apart.  Sometimes you are not really the same person you were in your 20's, and who is the government in preventing the both of you from doing the mature thing and agreeably parting ways?


In fact, ang nangyayari ngayon mas magulo pa.  Either they stay together but within a loveless or even turbulent marriage where neither is happy, or they just live apart but can't really start the next chapter of their lives because they are legally and financially tied together.   Sa akin lang naman, but I think it's the Church's way of telling us that we can't be trusted to make our own decision.  Why prevent something and limit the options when you really trust your flock to do the right and "Catholic" way?

Among the hundreds of my friends and families who are married, there are a handful who are in irreconcilably turbulent relationship. A small minority. That tells you that the vast majority of people in our country take marriage seriously and they make their marriages work.


The government is not preventing people with failed marriages from doing the mature thing and agreeably part ways. They can do that anytime. They can part ways. But they can't marry again while his/her spouse is still alive. There are few things in this country that you're allowed to do only once, and one of those is getting married.
