Divorce Referendum

As the entire world or at least Europe knows, last week Malta held a referendum on the legislation for the introduction of divorce. I intentionally did not blog about this for the past months, despite the heavy media and continuous bombardments from peers.

To cut the story short, the outcome was a YES to divorce - although it is not official yet from the parliarment, that would of course leave Philippines as the only country in the world without a legal divorce.

Without taking a stand in favour or against divorce, my next question clearly would be this: Would the Maltese people who fervently voted in favor of divorce still consider to be married by the Church institution?

I will leave the interpretation for that answer to you.
