Today I’m going to tackle a subject here that is intrinsic to a meeting of cultures here in the Philippines.

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.

It is no longer esteemed as it once was even in America’s own history as recently as 75 years ago.

The very word ‘submissive’ is one that chokes in the throat of any woman who wants to be seen as ‘progressive’ among her peers.

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.

These days the Wife is practically spit upon by contemporary culture.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.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.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.
