If I have a Filipina wife, does that mean I can be a Dual Citizen?

Getting US Citizenship for your child born in the Philippines

We got a question from Max today,

Here’s what Max had to say:

Here’s what Bob had to say:

Hi Max,

Philippine Dual Citizenship is only available for people who are former Philippine Citizens who gave up their Philippine Citizenship to become naturalized in another country. Foreigners like you and I are not allowed to become Philippine Dual Citizens.

You may apply for Philippine Citizenship, but if you do so you must renounce your current citizenship.
