I've just registered here. I would like to ask those who have knowledge about the law. I would like to ask about concubinage. Please take a short time to read my message and give me the best answer you can give me. Thank you very much and here is the story (I'll just speak in Filipino since this is a Filipino-friendly forum):
Yung dad ko po and mom ko, naghiwalay. Not legally. I'm the only son. It has been years since that. Dad has his girlfriend already and mom has his boyfriend. Mom and tito (what I call her boyfriend), live under one roof along with me.
So kahapon po, may pinagagawa dad ko kay mom na something about me as their son. And my dad got pissed because ayaw niya yung hindi nasusunod ang gusto niya. Gusto niya pag sinabi niya, kilos agad. Hindi makapagintay. And nagmumumura yun at nagagalit even to the simplest of things.
And then kahapon nga, nag text dad ko kay mom. The exact message wrote, "uy kupal 2ks mo nang asignment ang lbc send and swipe card hanggang ngayon di mo maasikaso"
And nabasa po yun nung BF niya. So siyempre, as a BF na nagmamahal sa siyota niya (my mom), nagalit kay dad. Tinext niya na wag daw sasabihan si mama ng ganun dahil kahit daw siya hindi niya minumura si mom ng ganun. Kung may sasabihin si dad, ayusin daw niya ang pagkakasabi sabi ng BF ni mom.
Ngayon si dad, nag threaten ng manahimik daw si BF ni mom dahil usapan daw nilang magsawa to and kabit lang siya. And he threatened to file concubinage.
That's where my question comes in. Again, mom and dad are not legally separated. Mom and BF are not legally married. Months ago, mom wanted to make their separaiton legal and I don't know about my dad but he just won't cooperate. Personally sa tingin ko lang (dahil ewan ko may konting tama yata ang tatay ko, ewan ko ba), para lang may magamit siya dun sa concubinage niya.
1. What can we do against concubinage?
2. Is there something my mom can use like women's rights kasi hindi na niya mahal ang dad ko and ayaw niya na talaga sakanya dahil napaka pangit ng ugali. BUT, hindi po siya nambubugbug. Puro mura lang kapag naggalit even about the very very very very simplest of things. Pwede namang sabihin ng maayos. Puro mura at threaten nga ng batas.
3. Is there something an underaged fifteen year old can use like child's right or whatever kasi mas gusto ko talagang sa mom ko ispend the rest of my life instead with dad and even me, namumura rin ng masasakit na salita even about the very simplest of things.
I don't really know what to do. Just in case he files that against us, tell me EVERYTHING we can do to defend against it and what can we file against him for our side? Thanks a lot.
