Islamic marriage advice and family advice

I want to marry him, but I’m still legally married in the Philippines (1)

I am still married in the Philippines. Everyone knows that there’s no divorce in the Philippines, and it’s very difficult to get an annulment. One needs thousands of pesos, and it really takes time.
