Dating relationship building questions
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.
Being an American myself, I have to say that in 49 years of living in the USA.. wife is in her 20’s and more often than not, very attractive. It’s not like in America where it’s pretty easy to tell the Mothers from the daughters. I want to know what makes their mind and heart ‘tick’. And from what I’ve observed of cultures outside the Philippines and within it here are some trends I have noticed..”.
I probably only saw or knew someone in a May-December relationship perhaps a dozen times. I’m the kind of person that observes and asks a lot of direct questions from people in private. That is great, and I raised my daughter along those lines.
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.
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.Family and respect for authority, truly seeking their parent’s blessing and permission to date someone is not a formality here.These girls truly are raised with a strong sense of Catholic tradition in their everyday life.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.
It is not a rare occurrence here to see older men happily married with much younger women.
