Duterte favors same-sex civil union Palace
« on: July 04, 2018, 11:16:21 PM »
Interesting changes are coming to the Philippines, looks like it is finally happening, long overdue IMO, everyone should be allowed to be happy.

The Supreme Court has already begun holding oral arguments for a petition to legalize same-sex marriage in the Philippines.
:) Happily married since 1994 & live part of the year in Cebu and the rest in S. Florida.

Completely agree.  About time.  Surprised it took this long, but with the power that the catholic church carries, maybe I shouldn't have be.  In almost every other part of the gay and lesbian acceptance in this country being decades ahead of the USA(in a lot of areas, not all), I thought this would have happened before now.

Geez, one would think they would hurry and push through the divorce act between heterosexuals first.  I know it has been passed once but don't it's law yet.

If this goes through, are they going to be classified like the Muslims in the Philippines where divorce is legal?  And if so, they sure as hell better legalize divorce for the rest of the Philippines.  There is not a large enough chunk of muslim marriage/divorce in the social fabric of the Philippines for it to make a bid deal, but when a lot of the gay/lesbian marriages happen(last I knew, the Catholic church in the Philippines stands against it and probably won't allow those marriages in their church) and then are followed with legal divorce...that will weigh heavy in the social fabric that they are allowed divorce while straight marriages are not.
