Did the Dingdong Dantes-Marian Rivera wedding violate the Philippine Civil Code against ‘thoughtless extravagance’?

It was hard to ignore the recently-concluded nuptials of Philippine celebrity couple Dingdong Dantes and Marian Rivera. The news of their “royal wedding” was all over the local mainstream and social media. Their highly-anticipated wedding has been the talk of the town for months.

Adultery Central: Should the Philippines ban hanky-panky website Ashley Madison?

I read recently that Ashley Madison is in town! Ashley Madison is a dating site for people interested in finding a partner for an extramarital affair. It is a popular dating website based in Canada and has been around for some years now. Well, like most internet businesses, it needs to expand. What better place […]

Is same-sex marriage a more important issue than divorce??

I often wonder about the twisted priorities of Philippine society. I read just now how Quezon City Mayor Herbert “Bistek” Bautista is reportedly mulling the allowing of same-sex marriage in his city.

Sane or insane: What’s up with Claudine Barretto??

I mean, after all the brouhaha surrounding that sensational airport rage incident involving Ramon Tulfo, she just can’t stop making headline news — in a bad way. While presidential sister Kris Aquino manages to use her equally sordid personal dramas to build celebrity equity, all it achieves for Claudine is fast track her spiral into […]

Time to implement a decent Divorce Law and junk the moronism of ‘annulment’

Kris Aquino is not just another screeching Filipino showbiz personality. She is the sister of the President of the Philippines. Her marital woes with basketball player James Yap back in 2010 couldn’t have been good for the spin machinery of her brother President Benigno “Noynoy” Aquino III — a man who owes much of his […]

Are there still available men like Chris Tiu??

The ABS-CBN News headline got it right: “Sorry ladies, Chris Tiu is already married”. He’s the perfect Pinoy guy — handsome, Jesuit-educated, star basketball player, smart (as in, a grad of the Ateneo’s flagship mega-hard ultra-elite course Management Engineering), and, get this, super religious.
