INTRODUCTION

Background of the study

Marriage is the state of being united to a person of the opposite sex as husband or wife in a consensual and contractual relationship recognized by law.

It is a sacred institution that evolved through ages. It is based on mutual trusts, confidence and commitment. It has religious sanctions and so it is solemnized with rituals.

Marriage has continuously degenerated into a formal contract, losing its sanctity. Sexual orientations have changed which has completely restructured the institution of marriage. Getting annulled separated and breaking away the marital bond has become rather a solution and an empty formality.

In the Philippines, there is no divorce law, where marriages have to necessarily go through dilatory annulment proceedings.

People who belong to the upper class are lucky, able to tackle the annulment proceedings with the costs they have to give while those who belong to the middle

and lower class suffer from the marriage their in, unable to bear the cost and get a decree in their favour.

These many women suffer along with their children and they cannot get remarried without getting a decree or complying with the provisions of the court order.

For that reason, this research paper has come up to lighten everyone on the possible remedies for the suffering of these many unfortunate women. This research paper aims to find out from the PAF personnel of Zamboanga City whether or not Marriage of Contract be Renewable.

REVIEW OF RELATED LITERATURE

The Womens party-list group Isa-Ako Babaeng Astig Aasenso or 1ABAA plans to propose in Congress a measure requiring couples to renew their marriage after 10 years, or else their marriage would be null and void.

1-ABAA president Margie Tajon said the measure would save incompatible couples the trouble of going through a tedious and expensive annulment process.

She said it would also help cut down the number of annulment cases that have piled up in court.

Tajon likened a marriages lasting power to the shelf of canned goods.

If the canned food is expired, this one, if it is expired, you can renew it. There is no limit on renewal, she said.

It will enhance the relationship of the couple. Initially, we talked about 5 years, but then, you know, if people know that theres going to be an expiration, they

will be more caring since this is a consent between 2 parties, Tajon said in an interview on Mornings at ANC.

1-ABAAs measure only proposes to set an expiration date for a couples marriage and not their marriage license. It will be deemed cancelled if the contracting parties have not made use of it upon the date of expiration.
