You heard me right... or should I say, did I hear it right? This morning while I was preparing our breakfast and G's baon, we were tuned in (kasi I wasn't able to watch) to Unang Hirit. Since I was cooking and kinda' busy in the kitchen, I am not really sure if I heard it right. Someone 'proposed' that marriage should be valid for 7 years only and if the couple still feels happy in their relationship, they can renew it again for another 7 years. This is what they thought to be a good solution to the high rate of divorce these days. I don't really know if it is for real or what but still I AM AGAINST IT.
I had grown up believing that marriage is a covenant between two individuals that should not be broken. Since they chose each other to be their partners for life, they should help each other in maintaining a good and healthy relationship. If this 'concept' on marriage is approved, there will be greater chances that families will be separated and broken apart. Couples have more reason to find fault in each other when the 7th year is about to end.
I hope that if ever this will be approved in other countries, Philippines will stay say NO to it. I still believe that Filipinos still have the love for families to be whole and complete.
