Moving to the Philippines is a retiree’s dream come true. The tropical climate offers those with medical conditions a haven to retreat to. With thousands of islands and adventures to seek out, anyone can live their life here with ease. Many expats, who are young and old alike, come here to find companionship after a messy divorce or an ugly break up from a long term relationship. The Philippines offers and endless amount of love and kindness to foreigners and many marry here. With marriage comes family life and for some it is an easy going daily chore.
Some say that a divorce in this country is not possible but like many things here it is not talked about in open circles. The Philippines had a divorce law for almost 35 years in the 20th century but through the implementation of family law divorce had been abolished. People know that a long tedious annulment is costly and will take years to attain. Not only is this process difficult for the ladies but the men often become disgruntled in the procedure as well.
As the saying goes “Life Is Good”, here in the Philippines it is nothing short of the best. Those that accept and understand the people and their unique existence here often find peace in many other ways to live out their golden years. Though no world is perfect the Philippines is often molded by religion and the laws of the Catholic Church. Some find themselves trapped in a marriage they no longer want and the people have little choice in which to live happily. If a divorce in the Philippines is an acceptable way of finding peace between unhappy couples then there should be no godly rule that will deny it.
