But don't you worry, you can still be issued the marriage license and marry. All you need to do is:
1. Execute (your bf) a sworn statement to the effect that such advice has been sought but your bf's mother refused to give any advice;
2. Attach a certificate issued by a priest or imam or minister authorized to solemnize marriage under Article 7 of the Family Code or a marriage counsellor duly accredited by the proper government agency to the effect that the contracting parties have undergone marriage counselling.
The local civil registrar then shall prepare the notice which shall be posted for 10 consecutive days on a bulletin board outside the office of the local civil registrar located in a conspicuous place within the building and accessible to the general public.
After the completion of the period of publication, your marriage license shall be issued till after 3 months from the end of the 10-day publication. So, you can still be issued marriage license but it will be longer than the usual processing.

One of the exceptions mentioned by law where marriage license is not required is when the contracting parties have cohabited for 5 years or more as husband and wife without the benefit of marriage. However, during their cohabitation, the law requires that they must not have any legal impediment to marry each other. This is explicitly provided by Article 34 of the Family Code of the Philippines:
“Art. 34. No license shall be necessary for the marriage of a man and a woman who have lived together as husband and wife for at least five years and without any legal impediment to marry each other. The contracting parties shall state the foregoing facts in an affidavit before any person authorized by law to administer oaths. The solemnizing officer shall also state under oath that he ascertained the qualifications of the contracting parties and found no legal impediment to the marriage.”
The significance of a marriage license was discussed by the Supreme Court in the case of Engrace Niñal vs. Norma Bayadog (G.R. No. 133778, March 14, 2000), to wit:
“The requirement and issuance of marriage license is the State’s demonstration of its involvement and participation in every marriage, in the maintenance of which the general public is interested. This interest proceeds from the constitutional mandate that the State recognizes the sanctity of family life and of affording protection to the family as a basic “autonomous social institution.” Specifically, the Constitution considers marriage as an “inviolable social institution,” and is the foundation of family life which shall be protected by the State. This is why the Family Code considers marriage as “a special contract of permanent union” and case law considers it “not just an adventure but a lifetime commitment.”

Wala. follow the process, otherwise baka magka-problema kayo later. At pag-isipan muna din ang pagpapa-kasal, baka after few months matapos nyo maikasal e nandito ka ulit at nagtatanong kung paano mapapawalang-bisa ang kasal nyo.

You will still have your marriage, voidable this time, it will be validated by cohabitation for a period of not less than 5 years
Thanks for clarifying and expounding on this.
