Psychological incapacity is a common ground for declaration of nullity or legal separation in the Philippines, CBCP said, citing a document from the OSG.Other grounds include lack of authority from the solemnizing officer, bigamous or polygamous marriages, and marriages where one or both parties were below the marrying age allowed by law.Rep.
