A Man's Guide to the Perfect Filipina Bride
In order to find your perfect Filipina match you must first know
what real Filipina women are (not the misperceptions of Filipinas
you have grown up with) and make sure you can deal with certain
issues once the marriage is official.
Do Filipina Women Prefer Western Men To Filipino Men?
All a Filipina wants when looking for a man is a stable lasting
relationship. Considering the double standards in the Philippines
and the fact that they don't have divorce, it is true that
Filipina women have a lot to contemplate when considering
marrying a Filipino man. Western men are perceived as being more
modern and loving than Filipinos so it is no surprise when they
are more desirable for a life companion.
Do Filipina Women Prefer Men Who Are Many Years Their Senior?
Statistically, Western men who are looking for a Filipina wife
are above the age of 35. What makes them desirable is that they
are perceived by Filipinas as more mature, less promiscuous, and
financially stable. Such men have a better than average income, a
college education and most have been divorced once and are
seeking a stable lasting life-long relationship.
Is It True That Filipinas Are Submissive Little Sex Kittens?
Now here is the inconsistency. Many western men want their future
Filipina wife to be a virgin, and yet they are unwilling to
accept the limitations that such virtue implies. They wish for a
wife with no sexual history, yet hope that she has nothing else
on her mind other than to please their sexual desire.
In reality many Filipinas have advanced degrees of education and
professional lives. It could hardly be presumed that their only
purpose in life is to fulfill some man's wildest dreams. What
you do get when marrying a Filipina is woman dedicated to her
family and striving to keep her marriage successful.
Do You Want A Big Family?
Family will always remain a great priority for Filipino women;
and not just any family, but a big extended family. Ask yourself
if you want a big family and children (more children) because you
can be sure that any Filipina does.
Are You Religious?
There are three primary religions in the Philippines: 83% Roman
Catholic, 9% Protestant and 5% Muslim. It is common amongst
Filipino society to raise the family in the church. So be
prepared for some soul-searching on this matter since she is
probably more devoted to her religion than you are to yours. Your
perspective Filipina bride would most likely dream of a church
wedding, and some families even forbid their daughters to get
married without one.
Are You Ready To Accept Your New Wife's Family As Your Own?
You should be prepared to provide financial assistance to your
new, extended family when they have a need of medical attention,
or things like schooling or food. If you are capable and refuse
to help them, your lack of generosity would be inexplicable for
your Filipina wife and though she may not say anything, she will
neither respect you nor understand.
Are You Looking For A Filipina Wife Because You Hate The Women Of
Your Own Country?
You realize that it is not reasonable to hate an entire gender,
right? Even within the confines of a single country. If you are
marrying a Filipina, it should be because of who she is, not who
she is not.
Basically these are the main guides you should follow when
deciding whether a Filipina wife is right for you. If you can
handle these issues, I think you have made a great decision by
choosing a Filipina for your life companion and I can only wish
you luck in finding the perfect Filipina bride for you!
