Presidential Decrees :
Sec. 5 of Republic Act Number 3835 provides that officers and
enlisted personnel of the Women's Auxiliary Corps who contract marriage
shall be automatically separated or discharged from the service;
WHEREAS, Presidential Decree Number 1043 modifies the restriction by setting five years of continuous active service as a prerequisite before any member of the Women's Auxiliary Corps can marry without being separated or discharged from the service;
WHEREAS, similar current AFP regulations governing members of the Nurse Corps, contain the same restriction applied to the officers and enlisted women of the Women's Auxiliary Corps;
WHEREAS, this restriction causes demoralization especially among those who honestly feel that their rights are violated by such laws and regulations which limit their solemn and inherent prerogative to contract marriage anytime and that such restriction is prejudicial to their welfare since it is not applied to their civilian counterparts in other government service.
NOW, THEREFORE, I, FERDINAND E. MARCOS, President of the Philippines by virtue of the powers vested in me by the Constitution, do hereby order and decree that:
Done in the City of Manila, this 22nd day of March, in the Year of our Lord, Nineteen hundred and eighty-four.
