GR No. L-14628 September 30, 1960 FRANCISCO HERMOSISIMA vs. THE HON. COURT OF APPEALS, ET AL.

On October 4, 1954, Soledad Cagigas, hereinafter referred to as complaint, filed with said of her child, Chris Hermosisima, as natural child and moral damages for alleged breach of promise. Petitioner admitted the paternity of child and expressed willingness to support the latter, but denied having ever promised to marry the complainant. The main issue before us is whether moral damages are recoverable, under our laws, for breach of promise to marry. Breach of promise to marry is not actionable. "The action for breach of promises to marry has no standing in the civil law, apart from the right to recover money or property advanced . . . upon the faith of such promise".
