Today I’m going to tackle a subject here that is intrinsic to a meeting of cultures here in the Philippines.
And that subject is the age-difference relationships between Foreign Men and Filipina Ladies. Whether you are reading this as someone with interest in moving to the Philippines, or as a person curious about this sort of relationship, I think you will find yourself challenged to keep an open mind about this.
Family and respect for authority, truly seeking their parent’s blessing and permission to date someone is not a formality here.
These girls truly are raised with a strong sense of Catholic tradition in their everyday life.
And if I go to the larger malls in Cebu, I see it several times a day all through the day.
Now, people are people and you’ll find some unhappy couples if you look around enough.not only are there a multitude of May-December relationships; they stay together and are happy together.I have personally chatted with so many men this year who are just happy as can be with their younger, loving Filipina wife. She has the ‘old-school’ values of a loving wife and he is so amazed with her he practically falls over himself to make sure she is just as happy in return.It is no longer esteemed as it once was even in America’s own history as recently as 75 years ago.The very word ‘submissive’ is one that chokes in the throat of any woman who wants to be seen as ‘progressive’ among her peers.
