In the explanatory note of the proposed measure, Kabayan party-list Rep. Ron Salo said the ongoing pandemic has caused many wedding ceremonies to be canceled or postponed due to the need for physical distancing. | DYGalvezINQ

“The essence of the marriage ceremony is the personal appearance of the parties before the solemnizing officer and their declaration that they freely and willingly take each other as husband and wife,” Salo said.

Under the bill, the couple to be wed will be required to be together in one location so they could jointly face the solemnizing officer even if online.
