Sounds like great news for many who now find themselves stuck.
Quote
The final legislative proposal cites the following as grounds for absolute divorce:

Physical violence or grossly abusive conduct directed against the petitioner, a common child or a child of the petitioner;
Physical violence or moral pressure to compel the petitioner to change religious or political affiliation;
Attempt of respondent to corrupt or induce the petitioner, a common child or child of petitioner to engage in prostitution;
Imprisonment of respondent for more than six years, even if pardoned;
Drug addiction or habitual alcoholism or chronic gambling on the part of respondent;
Respondentís homosexuality
Bigamous marriage contracted by respondent
Marital infidelity or perversion or having a child with another person other than spouse during marriage, except upon mutual agreement;
Attempt against the life of the petitioner, common child or child of petitioner
Abandonment by petitioner or by respondent without justifiable cause for more than one year.
The bill also provides for annulment of marriage by maintaining the same grounds already provided under Article 45 of the Family Code of the Philippines.

Really hopes this passes and is signed.  I think if congress puts it through Duterte will sign it.

If I was forced to bet money on it, I am not all that confident it happens.  See the Catholic church putting up a fight big time.  But hope it does pass.

At least he is supporting it
Alvarez: Divorce needed vs abusive, dysfunctional marriages
House Speaker Pantaleon Alvarez (Davao del Norte) is hopeful that those opposed to a bill to make it easier to dissolve dysfunctional marriages will see why some married couples need it.
