Proposed civil union bill to protect ‘ugly’ spouses, too – Alvarez

In pushing for a law legalizing civil unions, Speaker Pantaleon Alvarez has intended to protect the rights of, among others, even "ugly" spouses whose partners only marry them for their wealth.

According to Alvarez, the proposed measure plans a complete separation of property if no marriage settlement would be reached. "Ito 'yong for marriages for convenience kasi ngayon kapag absolute community of property, karamihan kasi ...Keep on reading: Proposed civil union bill to protect ‘ugly’ spouses, too – Alvarez.....»»

PARIS --- France gave the world butter croissants and foie gras, yet it has often been a place where being overweight was seen as almost sinful. Now, after taking a hard look at the contradictions in the mirror, its capital has launched a campaign to counter sizeism, an often disregarded kind of discrimination in the image-conscious city known for luxury fashion brands and tiny waists.
