1 Rights of a seaman's wife on Fri Jan 05, 2018 10:53 am


Arresto Menor
Good day po. I just want to clarify some things with regards to my rights as a seaman's wife. Before we got married he already has 2 children. I did not asked him to stop supporting them kasi it's their right naman. i have never been his allottee since we got married (almost 4 years ago) because i am as well an OFW. i never asked any financial support from him kasi nagpapatayo sya ng bahay for us and for our a year old baby. Everytime i will ask question about his salary he will get mad at me. Until last 2 weeks ago he asked me to tell my sister to send a certain amount of money to the mother of his two children (his atm is with my sister). It's quite a big amount na hindi ko pa napigilan na wag mag ask. He never answered me. He told me na i dont have the right to ask. Sabi ko i have all the right to ask because i am his wife. He even told me na its not his responsibility to support me because im earning as well. He is not even supporting our child. Yung bahay lang talaga ang pinagkakagastusan nya tsaka monthly naman may allotment yung 2 bata. Bat kelangan magbigay pa sya ng ganon kalaking halaga? What should i do? can i at least exercise my right and be his allotte next time na alis nya? Pde din ba akong mag demand para sa anak namin? Ano po ba ang mga karapatan ko? Thank you po

Yes you are his legal wife.

Husband and wife are responsible for the obligations of the family, and for the support of the family, actually if your community property is dissolved by either of you dying or if you get a declaration of nullity of marriage, everything that he paid for using his salary which is considered community property is his debt, and will be deducted from his share before he or his estate gets his share.
