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.
After completing my economics degree (in UPLB), I worked in the Middle East for four years before starting this journey.
I funded my South East Asia backpacking trip with my savings then when Jon and I started living together, we always shared our expenses, from food, rent and everything (that’s the British way, in Tagalog “! When I met Jon, he had empty pockets and a $300 broken down motorbike.
So maybe it’s actually foreign men who need the visa, not the Filipinas!
We Filipinas can also travel to any country in the world with our Philippines passport so why would we need them if we can already get things on our own!?
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.
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!
If I was looking for a sugar daddy, I must have been blinded by that magic white skin again!
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.
I’ve dated Filipinos before and was even in a long-term relationship with one!
