she’s not accused of being ‘dependent’ or a ‘gold-digger’. Why so much judgmentalism for one couple and not the other? America has a long-standing history of Christian roots, I’ll grant that. I see and meet young Filipina women here all the time and I’m telling you, when it comes to having their head on straight, being mature, having right priorities..Those roots are evidenced in both our national traditions and even our Constitution. America today is hardly a theocracy that looks to God for guidance either in its politics or its entertainment. Congressmen hardly kneel down in prayer before voting on new legislation in search of God’s guidance. It is what is taught around the kitchen table at meal times. Here in the Philippines, Catholic culture is so embedded in the legislation that to commit Adultery is a legal crime. as a whole, Filipina young ladies blow away most young American girls.

Hollywood is hardly turning down scripts that include graphic violence or envelope-pushing nudity. It is not just a driving force in their past history either. People can be imprisoned from.) A person doesn’t have to live here long to see that laws such as ‘No Divorce’ end up doing more harm than good. You can try to get an annulment, where the court says that no marriage ever should have occurred for a short list of reasons. My whole point in bringing this up and why it relates to age-difference marriages is that here.. They are to assist him in providing for the family needs. The Filipina girl here at a younger age has a far different perspective on marriage than the American girl whose life is consumed with.. Sure, you’ll always find a few exceptions here and there.

Christianity is an ‘.” Here, Catholicism is not just one of a multitude of religions that coexist within it’s borders. Catholicism is such a driving force here that marriage is seen as an unbreakable joining of God that no man can render separate. a whole other phenomena is occurring in the raising up of young girls. Some Filipinas are selfish and some American girls are very mature.

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.

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.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.is a Foreigner/Filipina couple who are both the same age.It does happen, but here it is the exception, not the general rule.And if I go to the larger malls in Cebu, I see it several times a day all through the day.
