Meet a beautiful Filipina and fall in love straight away. And why would you not? The beauty of the Philippine race is known globally. With their mixture of Malay, Filpino and Spanish and other European mixes it is no wonder that the beauty of the Filipina is known globally. Many men come to the Philippines and fall in love with the beauty and the gentle and passive ways of the Filipinas, and in many cases a long-term relationship develops and the word marriage is brought up.

But many Filipinas are already married and cannot get a divorce in the Philippines or an annulment either. The cost and time required to have annulment is beyond most financially, and therefore the marriage continues without love and sometimes with violence. The divorce bill stagnates in the legal system and for the moment divorce in the Philippines continues to be a dream for most Filipinas.

 

Divorcing from her ex

But if you know how and have the right contacts it is very possible to obtain a fully legal divorce for your Filipina girlfriend. It is not well advertised and kept off the radar as not to offend the church and the control it has over most of the Roma Catholic population of the country. Be that said Divorce can be had in the Philippines.
