REALLY !! Wow, that is very good. It's the first time I've heard that. If you have a link or anything I can read more about it, please post it. I'd like to investigate further.

That's not completely correct. As long as the American divorced the filipina the divorce will be recognised in the Philippines and she will also be able to remarry. The divorce must be recorded at the NSO for it to be recognised though.
And in fact I did divorce her. So that should work out well for both of us. Thanks for the info!
