When to go from dating to relationship
They respect their parents that much, by and large.
Family and respect for authority, truly seeking their parent’s blessing and permission to date someone is not a formality here.
What a rarely see, and by rare I mean perhaps three times in a four-month period..
is a Foreigner/Filipina couple who are both the same age.
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.
So, without any more pretense, let’s get into the thick of this. here in the Philippines it is a very common sight to see a man in his sixties married to a young woman in her twenties with their child or two tagging along.
Without understanding the source of our "emotional allergies," we can hand the bill for that pain to our partner in the present.Personally, I live on the small island of Mactan and I see it at least every other day.And if I go to the larger malls in Cebu, I see it several times a day all through the day.But that’s all assuming that ‘equality’ has anything to do with non-dependence. In a same-age relationship, if the husband works and the wife doesn’t..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.
