Being an American myself, I have to say that in 49 years of living in the USA.. wife is in her 20’s and more often than not, very attractive. It’s not like in America where it’s pretty easy to tell the Mothers from the daughters. I want to know what makes their mind and heart ‘tick’. And from what I’ve observed of cultures outside the Philippines and within it here are some trends I have noticed..”.I probably only saw or knew someone in a May-December relationship perhaps a dozen times. I’m the kind of person that observes and asks a lot of direct questions from people in private. That is great, and I raised my daughter along those lines.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.Now, take just a moment to wrap your mind around this, because it will be the crux of what we are discussing here. I tell you, I’ve lost track how many times I’ve seen two or three young ladies walking by and at first glance I thought they were all schoolmates.Chances are if you live in Europe this is not unfamiliar to you and you have seen this plenty of times. All the same height, same weight, same nice figure.. That is the sort of situation that makes up the Philippines.
The assumption is that if American girls do it for insecurity or defiance..
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.
With no divorce available here, many married men give in to the plethora of available, more liberated Filipinas (But by and large, the age difference here in the Philippines works.
And it works here because there is an incredibly huge difference in the mindset of Filipina women from American women.
