  • Western Bukidnon Manobo: “Now as for you married couples, I also have a word for you. This is not just my advice to you, but rather it is a command of our Lord. It is: as for woman, she must not divorce her husband; and a man, he must not divorce his spouse. However, if there is a woman who has already divorced her husband, it is not possible that she get married again. It is possible for them to come back together.” (Source: Western Bukidnon Manobo Back Translation)
