BAGUIO, Philippines — A divorce from a foreign spouse obtained by a Filipino citizen abroad is valid and should be recognized in the country despite the absence of a divorce law, the Supreme Court (SC) ruled yesterday.

In a landmark ruling that came amid proposals in Congress to legalize divorce, the high court voted 10-3 to dismiss the petition of the Office of the Solicitor General (OSG) assailing a 2014 decision of the Court of Appeals (CA) that granted the bid of Marelyn Tanedo Manalo for recognition of her divorce from Japanese husband Minoru Yoshino. = The Philippine Star
