061411-direkjoey_main.jpgAs the director-writer of Star Cinema’s Wedding Tayo, Wedding Hindi, Jose Javier Reyes is thrilled that he has been given a chance to make a movie that will not only entertain moviegoers but will also give them something to ponder about after watching it. “It makes you think if it’s still worth getting married. When you get married ano ba talaga ang commitment na ibinubuhos mo bilang isang lalaki at babae sa isang relasyon? Ano ba ang puntong magpapakasal ka at kailan naman yung puntong walang saysay na ang isang relasyon para tawagin itong isang tambalang-tahanan? Isa itong comedy tungkol sa issues involving our society na nararapat lang bigyan pansin.”

The issue about divorce is something that Direk Joey feels strongly about that he even engaged in recent debates with religious organizations. “I am pro divorce mainly because I believe that Filipinos should be given a chance to mature. Hindi ako naniniwala na kapag ni-legalize mo ang divorce na ang Pilipino magiging pariwara, burara at hindi bibigyang pahalaga ang pagpapakasal. I think ang bata na sobrang pinoprotektahan ay lalaking inutil. At ang kaisipan ng Pilipino ay malapit na sa pagiging inutil dahil sa dami ng hipokrisiya at [mga taong] nagmamaganda o nagmamalinis sa ating lipunan.”

Direk Joey further explained that not all marriages are perfect. There are times when couples are better off apart rather than continue hating each other for the long haul. “Kahit na nakalantad na ang katotohanan na kapag ang dalawang tao nagkamali sa kanilang pagsasama, hindi yun kasalanan. Tao sila kaya sila nagkakamali at kailangang mabigyan ng pagkakataon na maging maligaya muli. Totoo, may legal separation and annulment. Pero alam mo ba kung magkano ang gagastusin ng taong gustong magpa-annul? A minimum of 150,000 to 200,000 pesos. Ilan sa Pilipino ang  kayang gumastos ng ganyan para lang isatuwid ang kanilang buhay at magkaron ng chance na lumigaya ulit?

He also stressed that it’s not about following the example of other modern and free-thinking countries, but more of empowering the Filipinos right to choose what’s best for them. “Hindi ako naniniwala na porket tayo lang ang bansa na walang divorce dapat tayo makisunod sa uso. Hindi naman yun ang punto e. Ang punto e magtiwala naman kayo na may utak ang Pilipino. Magtiwala naman kayo na ang Pilipino mature enough to make decisions for themselves. At magtiwala tayo na ang lahat ng tao nagkakamali, pati mga tao sa simbahan,” he reiterated.

Absolutely Direk, you had the point of view about divorce bill na yan. it's not all about that only Philippines are not involving on that kind of non-sense situation.

That's why coupled vow in the church or in the judge or who's the person they tied the knot just to settle them into peaceful relationship. The
