1 Marriage separation on Tue May 28, 2013 10:55 am

Baldymark


Arresto Menor
I am currently married for nearly 19 years living in Manila. I am a foriegn national and over the past 6 years the marriage has broken down. There is very little communication, she does not sleep in the same bed as me and has only had sex may be 3 times in the past 2 years. Whenever we talk it always ends up in shouting and arguing. I am at a point now where enough is enough, this affects my daughter and I do not want this. I do not want to be nasty with a separation, I have told her that all I want is my car, motorbike and personal possessions , I paid for the house but at the time of purchase I was only on a tourist visa and my name is not on the title. I told her that she can have it. I can not be with her and need to move on. There is another woman that I have started seeing but this is just a friendship, it is not sexual. Of course my wife does not believe anything I say.
In out phone calls one minute she is nice and accepts I am tired and want to leave her then she becomes very angry and threatens me saying " that I will not be safe in the philippines" also " that I have to watch my back" then she will be nice again.
All I want is a friendly split with no hassle. She says that I am hers and I can not do anything.
Please could you give me advise to help me. Thank you

you are not legally compelled to stay with her, but you are required to provide regular support.

also if you start living with someone else, you will be liable for the crime of concubinage.

if you want to dissolve your marriage, i would recommend to look to your resident state, rather than here.

Since you are a foreigner, file a divorce in your country and when its approved submit it to any Philippine municipal where you are and wait until it get processed! Though this may affect your residence status. Solution? while on divorce process observe the new woman but don't get involve sexually or live with someone else, so your wife can't sue you for concubinage! Razz not that its easy to prove that you had sex with someone else anyway! this has to be proved caught in the act! Then when divorced has been aproved the next step is to file under Philippine jurisdiction and when approved you can then marry the new woman! Wink So all you need is patient! if you know your wife is no longer worth it! why put up with her? But remember after divorce all the properties between you and her are conjugal, unless you had pre-nup from the start!

I'm afraid NO! Only if their marriage is registered in Philippines otherwise, no proof of marriage? no conjugal properties to deal with!
