Answer by nice_n_easy
For starters, are you referring to the Philippines? Come to think of it, is there such thing as legal separation in the Philippines? I assume you are a student of law, is it not? Provided there is, so could a legal separated person as prescribe in your question can re-married again? I donot think so myself. Because there is no such thing as legal separated individual granted by law in the Philippines, if you are sure then cite at least one case that the individual was granted legal separation and re-married again after a few years. Who do you have in mind?

Most couples in the Philippines have to ask for dissolvement of the marriage or annulment not legal separation because such thing donot have legal basis. In my own point of view, once you are legally separated you cannot re-marry so what is the point of asking it in the court? Every individual asking them is to get another spouse, isn’t it true? Once you get out of marriage what else would you be thinking? Living in the mountains, I donot think so.
