Today, Justice Secretary Vitaliano Aguirre said Senator Leila de Lima could be charged with immorality and “concubinage” for having an affair with Ronnie Dayan.
It’s the other way around, Sir. Only men can be charged with concubinage, meaning, they can only be charged if they house their lovers for an extended period of time. But it was not Ronnie Dayan who had housed De Lima. It was De Lima who had housed Dayan. So Dayan cannot be charged with concubinage. And since he cannot be charged with concubinage, De Lima cannot also be charged as Dayan’s “concubine”.
