The report quoted Pimentel, who said, "This may well be the most difficult public pronouncement I will ever be making in my entire life. And painful too, as every separation involves a certain degree of pain. I confirm my separation from my wife of close to 12 years, Jewel May Lobaton. We have been living separately since November 2011."

The report added that "Pimentel said he tried his best to resolve their differences 'for the sake of our two boys but have failed to do so.'"

    Should it be high time that the divorce law be passed in the Philippines? Pro-divorce advocates should welcome his backing of that bill. On the other hand, he can kiss goodbye the blessing of the Roman Catholic Church in his re-election bid

    Seems Pimentel and wife just wanted to resolve the former's electoral case against Zubiri.. then they untied the knot. Wedlocked no more.
