House Speaker Pantaleon Alvarez Proposes Magna Carta For Ugly Spouses

27DDCF5F-1D02-4298-9DD5-61DFCB7D1BE1MANILA, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles, Manila Bureau) – The Philippines has a Magna Carta for Women, but none for ugly spouses. But that could change very soon, thanks to House Speaker Pantaleon Alvarez.

Alvarez, who according to reports, has ‘abandoned’ his wife and justified it on religious grounds, is not backing down on his priority legislation that would introduce civil unions in the Philippines.

Now, the Speaker says his proposed bill would also benefit “ugly and rich” people who remain married only because of their money.

“Ngayon kasi kapag absolute community of property…karamihan ngayon, kung hindi babae or lalaki, kahit na medyo pangit, kapag maraming pera pakakasalan mo,” he said during an interview with Karen Davila.

Alvarez said that an amendment to the Family Code would make complete separation of property the default, instead of the absolute community of property, in the absence of a marriage settlement.

So if you’re rich but ugly, you’ve got a friend in the Speaker of the House.

Isulong ang Magna Carta for ugly people!
