Philippines today is facing one of the talked issue of the country about the renewal of marriage contract every five years and if it will be applied or not in our country. As a Roman Catholic we are against the renewal of marriage contract every five years because we stand and believe that marriage is a sacred matter that should not be change based on its nature, because God is the one that binds married couple. Marriage as a sacred sacrament is the foundation of a family and should not be treated as a grocery item with an expiration period on its label. There should never be expiration for marriage because you will only be breaking God’s law that a husband and wife should be as one.
In some cases, children’s studies is affected being a member of a broken family and can affect the growth of the children. In other cases, children might feel disinvolved to the society because of the family he/she belongs to. Just imagine the consequences or effects if renewal of marriage contract every five years should be legalized.
