Bad faith in fathering

Here’s a contract that would be void in the Philippines, and the aggrieved party would have no cause to sue for breach.  Courtesy of Lasse Lien.

The contract is void under Art. 5 of the Civil Code, which states that acts contrary to mandatory or prohibitory laws are void.  Contract performance requires adultery, a crime in the Philippines.

Moreover,  both parties could be prosecuted (the void contract held as a conspiracy) and the object or effects of the crime forfeited to the government.  Art. 1411, Civil Code.
