With the issue of divorce getting the Philippines that is a predominantly Catholic country torn in half, the stars of the newest Ruel S. Bayani masterpiece "Kasal" were asked about their stand on the heated topic.
Paulo Avelino, who admitted that the issue is something he "is not fully knowledgeable of," said he would do more research so he could make a stand once the subject is brought up in future conversations.
"In all honesty, I'm quite confused with annulment and divorce so I don't want to talk about something (I’m not) fully knowledgeable of. But since it might happen in the Philippines, I think it's about time that I should study and give my opinions after," Paulo said.
Meanwhile, Derek Ramsey and Bea Alonzo addressed the issue by saying that they disagree to have divorce legalized in the country.
"I think we're the only country left that's not on the bandwagon of having divorce legalized. And with globalization, you know, I think, maybe the country is ready. With that said, I don't believe in it. But I would say I think it will happen," Derek said.
"The world has become such a small space yet it's so easy to know anything and everything. And if the world has jumped on that bandwagon, I think we will, too sad to say. But again, I don't believe in it. But I think it will end up that way," he continued.
Bea, on the other hand, gave a rather straightforward response to the question.
"This is just my opinion - and without judgment for those who believe in divorce. Ako, I just don't believe in divorce kasi para sa akin, napaka-importanteng commitment ng marriage 'di ba? Parang why get married if there's an option to get to divorce?"
"Para lang naman sa akin ito. I don't judge the people (who) believe and who are going through a divorce," she concluded.
