“I want to be truthful to you. I am against divorce,” he said during an event last Friday.

Cayetano said that he promised to their pastor that he would never be separated with his wife Taguig Rep. Lani Cayetano.

He also argued that the “family is the basic unit” of society that must be protected.

The house leader, however, cites grounds for dissolution of marriage like when one of the couple is being maltreated by the other. This, however, will not be enough grounds for divorce.

Cayetano warned the people that legalizing divorce could lead to abuses in the law.

“My personal view is once you file for divorce, that will lead to no-fault divorce,” he added.

The house speaker also clarified that he will not impose his beliefs on other lawmakers. Cayetano added that divorce could lead to more problems than solutions.

“If one of them separated and abandoned his family only to marry again, it might cause more problems than solutions,” he added.
