Hi,

So currently my friend is being harassed by an ex whom back in 2016 their families came together and had a chat with each other's family and decided that my friend and his ex are going to live together considered married although no marriage certificate.
Before the two was "married", back in 2014, my friend and his new girlfriend met but only reamained as friends. My friend had an on and off relationship with his ex due to the ex being jealous of the friend but when they were "married", there was no communication between my friend and his current gf now.
After that, my friend had been together with his ex at the residence of his ex's parental home with her child that is not my friend's but another man's child when his ex was younger and had been living together as though they were married but only for 6 weeks since she left the country 2 weeks later after the family came together to work as a domestic helper in in oman. After she left, since in traditional way, they are married she had been sending money on several occasions for her "family" which she sent to my friend's mother a total of 71,000 pesos.
After the girl left the country, my friend stayed at her parental home for another 2 weeks so he stayed with her family a total of 2 months.
A year later, in June 2017 she came home to the Philippines but went to visit her new boyfriend first. My friend learnt from the girls aunt that she had returned to the country so he went to see her but she was shocked to see him saying "what are you doing here? We're already broken up and how did you know I was home?" She also added "find someone else, or wait for me if you want". July 19 2017, she posted a new profile together with the new bf.
There was no communication between the two until my friend had a new GF officially together since Jan 1 2018 but had been seeing each other since December 9 2017. The ex then started bombarding the new lovers with text messages saying she wants her 71000 in full and will she the ex if not paid immediately. She has also been spreading rumors that the new girl is pregnant and had been talking badly about the girlfriend of her ex saying that "I knew they were secretly seeing each other when I was with him" although it was not true.
She had been treathening the current girlfriend back in 2014 when they were only friends as well as now through text messages and on Facebook.
So my question is, how badly can the ex girlfriend sue her ex boyfriend because the ex Is threathenig to sue my friend for concubinage although she would have committed adultery herself if the "marriage" was taken into account.
All the ex was interested in was getting her 71000 back in full but the money was spent on her child and some on my friend.
Can the new girlfriend sue the ex girlfriend for slander since she had been talking shit about her and it is ruining her reputation as the new girlfriend is studying to be a nurse and currently residing in another country.
My friend is ok to settle for half the 71000 but that's as a last resort.

wait, are they legally married or not? If a search is made in the registry of marriages, will their names come up?

if the woman sues, then the rightful person to sue would be the recipient which is the mother. the mother's defense would be to explain the purpose of the money sent.

if the degrading remarks were made orally, you will have to produce the persons who personally heard them uttered for a case of slander to prosper

Thanks for the reply but they are not legally married they were "married" in the traditional way which for them was the parents of the girl visits the parents of the guy and that's that but apparently when my friend ask her wife to get a marriage cert she was not keen for it since she had other plans to work overseas and her papers were all ready she just needed to finish her training and pay the dues so she can leave in which the husband, my friend didn't agree to. He wanted her to stay so they can both look after their child which was hers from another guy but he accepted the child with no issues.
There were text messages, Facebook remarks and private messages.

All I told them to do was if she was going to sue, which apparently her mother would do on her behalf, which I'm sure isn't allowed since her mother had nothing to do with it. She has receipts of the sent total and she wants it all back. She was even threatening to take her in law's land as a payment

the New girlfriend want to file a case against the ex gf for ruining her reptation. the ex GF is in Saudi Arabia and the my friend's gf is currently in New Zealand, a New Zealand citizen but a filipina by birth. What are her options and what steps should she take to pursue a case against the ex gf

filing a case in the PH doesn't seem to be proper if no one is here. it can be done but it would probably lead to nothing

So before the end of the month of feb ended, the parents of the ex gf and the guy met up and made an agreement that he will give back all he owed by the end of 2 months. At that day, a motorcycle worth 30k and 10k was given to the exs parents and a signed agreement was made stating that fromt that day on forward, she has nothing to do with them but the next day she posted on fb where a lot of friends and families and others saw. She sated in her post that the new gf was a whore and and even posted a picture of the 2 lovers with a caption stating both the girl and guys full name and sayig that even if she was paying the guy it shouldnt be a problem and said how much is it per night.

So whats the best option to do from here since the ex wants the rest of her money back and get off the hook for posting publicly on social media?
