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.
But there’s another unspoken side effect to this individualistic, self-sufficient mantra and it echoes something like this when they are older, “.” The only part of American culture I’ve witnessed that contradicts this mentality is found among conservative religions such as Christianity, Mormonism, Jehovah’s Witness, Seventh-Day Adventist and similar Bible based religions which still hold up the values of the Wife who is both a Help Mate to her Husband, yet submissive to his authority and leadership.
is a Foreigner/Filipina couple who are both the same age.
It does happen, but here it is the exception, not the general rule.
Here, young girls ARE told to esteem the ‘Proverbs 31’ Wife model. Mothers teach their daughters in all strictness that when the day comes that they marry a man, they are to love him faithfully. But as a whole trend, Filipinas by age 17 already know how to keep a clean house, earn money, save money, help raise their baby siblings and have a much higher sense of respect for the authority of their parents. if you expect to date a younger Filipina here, be prepared more often than not to meet with her parents on the first or second date.
They respect their parents that much, by and large.
Today’s American woman, for the most part, does not value or practice the age-old values of a ‘submissive wife who trusts in God’. It’s been a long time since anyone batted an eye regarding a White and Black spouse being married or in a relationship.
And this has everything to do with why the age-difference relationship is, to this very day, considered a pariah of society in America despite having such an open mind about interracial or same-sex relationships. (.) But people in America today are very accepting of both these relationship scenarios. if someone shows up at the family reunion or Christmas party and the age difference between spouses is anything more than 10 years.. Comments are made and if the age difference is 20 years or more.. made upon anyone who dares to love or (gasp) marry someone with any noticeable age difference in America. Namely, what I just mentioned about how little girls are taught about self-sufficiency and independence.
People do fall in love, despite differences in race, culture, wealth or age.
It’s not even worth pointing out the times it doesn’t work out because so many same-age relationships end up in divorce that one can’t make the argument that same-age relationships make for better, longer lasting marriages.. However, strangely enough, here in the Philippines..
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.
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.
