Issues arising today about the RH bill and recently the Philippines as the only country who does not support divorce dicourses our right, our freedom to chose what is best for us versus our morality. For what does this causes bring about? To have best quality of life possible? Who then knows the guidelines of how or what a quality life is? To live in comfort, in luxuries with no pain or suffering whatsoever. Who wants suffering anyway? To live freely in doing one's desires but what is freedom anyway? To have the best life possible? And then what? Where is the fulfilment after all? Freedom for me is a word full of irony. It is with one's freedom can a person choose what is right despite of having his own desires. It's what the heart tells you what is right, regardless of the different morals we understand in our own ways.
Marriage is sacred, with all your loved ones as witness to the celebration of your love, the vows you make to God, that you will stick together with your spouse no matter what, through thick and thin, for better or for worse, in sickness and in health, till death to they part. And isn't it ironic that divorce is the complete opposite of that vow? The problems you face as a couple, you do it as one because you are one in the eyes of God. Individually you are very different but you are one as your love for each other. It takes a great deal of courage, sacrifices or even heartaches to face that difficulites but as you both face it hand in hand, you will both grow stronger.
Sacrifices, hardships and even suffering strengthens the soul.
And for me, the strength of your soul equates to the quality of life one can ever have.
