Is dating different from relationship
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.
Personally, I live on the small island of Mactan and I see it at least every other day.
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.
There’s a reason I took the time to show the difference between Western and Philippine culture regarding this issue. I can give a bit more lenience to college age girls who fall for their older, mentoring professor who is maybe 20 years their senior.
And it is this; what applies and occurs in the West is NOT what applies and occurs here in the Philippines. In the USA, the reasons a 19 year old, self-centered, insecure girl decides to run off in a relationship with a 59 year old man are usually pretty obvious. Once in a blue moon these sort of relationships work out in the US.
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.
