    The Philippines is one of only two countries in the world where divorce is illegal.

    Join NowThis World Producer Alex Janin as she explores how the Philippines became one the last countries in the world with a ban on divorce, and how that affects its people.

    The only other state with a divorce ban is Vatican City - and with a population of under 1,000 made up of mostly nuns and priests, divorce isn’t in very high demand. But in the Philippines, a country with more than 40,000 married couples, more than half the population supports legalizing the practice.

    So when will Filipinos in unhappy marriages finally get the chance to move on?

    Philippines must maintain its stand against DIVORCE. To fight for the right is not backward. Philippines has a unique culture and must not bow down to the way of the west and other countries.

    I'm not a catholic, but I don't blame them. Like any other religious groups, they're not the ones creating our laws. They can provide suggestions and try to influence the decisions by expressing their views, but our politicians are the ultimate decision makers. And we, as the voting community, are the ultimate decision makers on who should sit on the table to create laws. We are a democratic country, so if divorce stays illegal, that's what majority of Filipinos wants.

    If don't implemented the divorce I think it's more worse because the children was affected the problems because of the physical abuse of both woman and man
