This is the cheeky way men could do! They convert to Islamic in order to get out of the previous marriage and be allowed to get married again to other women. If his conversion is done with faith then he is allowed to do so, but if he is doing it for the sake of marrying another woman then it's a sin! Islamic has way of knowing their sincerity to their religion as they have to pass various stage before they can be regards as one! If he is dedicated to his new religion then nothing you can do to stop him from marrying his new woman. Your married is still valid as you will be regarded as the first wife but being converted this give him rights to divorce you! As Muslim has divorce in their religion I'm afraid! silent

may professor akong muslim. diniscuss nya samen yan. sabi nya, dapat ang 2nd marriage ng lalaki is with the consent of the first wife.. hehehe.. i am so sure sinabi nya yun but im not sure kung my connection din yun sa legalities ng kasal. MSU kasi skul ko, run by muslims so medyo napag usapan namen yun..

Thanks for your reply dianne.. yeah ive heard about that. It must have a consent from the first wife. Better for me if he will give me a divorce rather than filing an annulment

Not quite right! It's possible if the first wife is also a Muslim one, but she is a Christian, so her approval has got nothing to do with him marrying another woman under his new religion. This approval only refers to Muslim first wife I'm afraid! So wish you luck that he will agree to divorce you! You need a strategy like file a case under RA9262, who knows if you're lucky enough, he might divorce you because he does not want trouble!

Remember Robin Padilla's case? (Correct me if I'm wrong!) he is married before and in order to marry his other wife he converted into Islam.

Technically, this is very similar with a marriage between a Filipino citizen and a foreigner.

1) If it is the Filipino spouse who initiates or files the divorce action against the alien spouse, the subsequent divorce will not be recognized here in the Philippines. If that Filipino gets married here again, he or she will be liable for bigamy.

2) However, if it is the alien spouse who initiates or files the divorce action, Article 26 of the Family Code will apply. The divorce will be recognized here in the Philippines; if the said divorce allows the former alien spouse to remarry, the Filipino will also have the right to remarry under Philippine law. That is, after the foreign divorce decree is recognized by a Philippine court; more on this below.

Meaning, if he converted into Muslim where they have divorce, only the Muslim husband can divorce his Christian wife but the Christian wife cannot divorce him. So it's better for her to do a smart move! If she sue him for RA9262 this will annoy her hubby, who knows? This might be the ticket to her freedom!
GOOD LUCK ANYWAY!!! Wink
