The NBI explains how The Legal Wife has empowered women
It takes a telenovela to tell us to strike back by suing unfaithful spouses.
Why waste energy confronting your husband and/or his mistress when you can just sue them?
According to the National Bureau of Investigation (NBI), The Legal Wife-the telenovela about a legit wife (Angel Locsin as Monica) dealing with her philandering husband (Jericho Rosales as Adrian)-has actually encouraged women in similar situations to seek justice.
Acording to a TV Patrol report, the NBI said they noted a rise in the number of adultery and concubinage cases filed ever since The Legal Wife became popular. Atty. Dennis Siyhian of the NBI’s Violence Against Women and Children Division himself said, "The Legal Wife was educational for these women."
But now that the primetime soap opera has ended, will wronged partners move on to studying the pros and cons of annulment?
