The Social Evils of Divorce (Part 1)

Posted by on Mar 7, 2018 in Divorce

Pro-divorce legislators and pundits are hoping against hope that under the Duterte Administration they have a greater chance of advancing their cause, which abundant empirical evidence has demonstrated to have devastating consequences on society.

We’ve seen them on TV and videos. We have seen the anguish, anger, and unbearable fear of young people who survived.
