Several reports say that Senator Francis “Chiz” Escudero and Presidential sister Kris Aquino are “steady dates”. Both were previously married. Kris is undergoing annulment proceedings while it is unclear if Chiz has also filed or is a subject of annulment process.
What is clear is that Chiz has ended his 10-year marriage with Christine Elizabeth. Chiz has twins with Christine.
If they’re dating, they’re technically subject to adultery for Kris and concubinage for Chiz (if Chiz lives in with Kris). Dating is something not illegal by the law, but it is illicit in the eyes of the Church and of civil authorities.
Is this the reason why several quarters close to both of these personalities are staunchly pushing for the passage of the divorce law? Even so, for one to get his divorce papers, one has to undergo the process.
Actually, this rumor has been around since the May 10, 2010 elections. Surprisingly, it did not die down. So, as every entertainment editor would say, when there’s smoke, there’s fire. And when there’s fire, it must be true.
