Advantages of speeddating
Yes, there are perhaps some Filipinas who have this reason but not in most cases!
When we decided to pursue our around-the-world backpacking journey together, we both worked hard to build our initial funds! No matter what success we experience, people might still think it’s because the Magic white man got us here.Most of them leave home at the age of 18 and up until then they do household chores; guys and girls!We share the cleaning in our house, but funnily Jon is better and faster at it than I am!Ok, so they have more ‘free countries’ than us, but it balances out, because when they pay, they pay big!Also, if you travel in mostly Asian countries, having a Filipino passport has way more advantage than his, he has to pay more than me!So don’t tell me that we Filipinas just stay at home, waiting for our partners to feed us!
Even if someone does decide to remain at home to look after the family and home, that’s a personal choice which also involves a lot of hard work. Again, it may happen in some cases, but before marrying their Filipina wife, the foreigner must already have met the family, right? My parents are both Professional; my younger sister is also a Dentist while my younger brother is about to finish his University degree.
Young western kids often have jobs when they are growing up, not because the family is poor, but to earn some of their own money and to get some real life experience and responsibility before leaving school.
Jon even leaves the Do Not Disturb sign on the hotel room door because, ‘it feels weird having someone come and clean up after me! Not all White people are rich; this is a hangover of the American occupation.
If everyone was rich, who would clean the streets, or do menial tasks that no one else wants to do?
Ahh western-style economics, making sure we always have someone poor enough to sweep the streets!
So it was their choice if you still want to marry despite the condition! We are not rich, but my family lives comfortably, and we were brought up to be independent.
