One foreigner friend involved in a marriage crisis was informed of a few points of law by a local judge very recently: 1. While it is true the Filipina wife owns the land, and the foreigner husband can own the house... that is.. unless the house is worth more than the land. Then the wife automatically owns the house as well. 2. Prenuptual agreements are fine but when it comes to Filipino law vs any matters in the prenup, those points in conflict with PI law in the prenup are not binding.
