DIVORCE BILL PLENARY DISCUSSIONS
 

13 March 2018 03:40:31 PM

THE House of Representatives on Monday started plenary discussions of House Bill 7303 or the proposed "An Act Instituting Absolute Divorce and Dissolution of Marriage in the Philippines." Speaker Pantaleon Alvarez, one of the authors of the bill, is seen discussing it with the other authors of the measure and House leaders, including Majority Floor Leader Rodolfo Fariñas and Deputy Majority Leader Juan Pablo Bondoc, during the session. Deputy Speaker Pia Cayetano, Reps. Edcel Lagman and Emmi de Jesus delivered their sponsorship speeches on the bill while Reps. Lito Atienza and Raul del Mar interpellated the sponsors. One of the guiding principles of the bill is that absolute divorce shall be judicially decreed after the fact of an irremediably broken marital union or a marriage that is defective from the start.
