Marriage or Love

Love is useless unless it is shared with another. Indeed, no man is an island, the cruelest act ~xxx~ is to say “I could not have cared less.” This is so because an ungiven self is an unfulfilled self. The egoist has nothing but himself. – Chi Ming Tsoi v CA

Marriage is not an adventure but a lifetime commitment. … Regrettably, neither law nor society itself can always provide all the specific answers to every individual problem. (Republic, Santos v Bedia-Santos, 240 SCRA 20 (1995)

Man has not invented the reliable compass by which to steer a marriage in its journey over troubled waters. Laws are seemingly inadequate. Over time, much reliance has been placed in the works of the unseen hand of Him who created all things. Who is to blame when a marriage fails? – Chi Ming Tsoi v CA

Marriage is a most sacred institution: it is the foundation on which society rests. To cancel it, clear and reliable evidence is needed. – Buccat v Buccat

And although absence can indeed make the heart grow fonder, the opposite can just as well be true: out of sight, out of mind. (Bier v. Bier, G.R. No. 173294)
