I don't see why you want this. If you're married to a Philippina you can own real estate and businesses with her. You didn't say what country you are from. Is Philippine citizenship worth loosing the citizenship you already have with your home country?

Provided you stay married!!!

If I am reading this right, seems to rule out anyone not born in the Philippines or residing in the Philippines since birth. It makes no sense but it sounds like this rules most everyone out. Correct me if I am missing something.

I noticed that too. It's strange because all the other times this topic has come up, it has been shown that it required 10 years of residency, 5 if married to a Filipino. Now that is nowhere to be seen.

Republic Act No. 9139, approved June 8, 2001, provided that aliens under the age of 18 who were born in the Philippines, who have resided in the Philippines and have resided therein since birth, and who possess other specified qualifications may be granted Philippines citizenship by administrative proceeding subject to certain requirements.[1][2

I agree. I don't know if he gets a pension but every CITIZEN in the U.S. gets SS Checks when they retire. Giving up citizenship to become a Philippine citizen just doesn't make sense to me. I get the feeling there's something Spook's not telling us.

Exactly right! He's not telling you he wants to give up his US citizenship. Where did that crazy idea come in?

It's not fact, it's myth. In order to receive SS retirement checks you have to have participated in the SS system or your spouse has participated. If not, no check!

 

As for loosing citizenship, I believe in the USA anyway, you are allowed to hold dual citizenship status. Correct me if I'm wrong please.
