MANILA -- President Benigno “Noynoy” Aquino III said he is not in favor of divorce bill being pushed in Congress.

“Divorce is a no-no,” he told reporters in an event at World Trade Center Thursday.

“Definitely I cannot support something like you do in Las Vegas, like you can stereotype that you get married in the morning you can get divorce in the afternoon,” he said further.

He said he would prefer legal separation instead but noted that both parties should be given freedom to re-marry.

Aquino meanwhile refused to comment on the nullification process of the marriage of his sister Kris and husband James Yap in honor of court proceedings. (Jill Beltran/Sunnex)
