is a Foreigner/Filipina couple who are both the same age.It does happen, but here it is the exception, not the general rule.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.It is not a rare occurrence here to see older men happily married with much younger women.Now, people are people and you’ll find some unhappy couples if you look around enough.
Chances are if you live in Europe this is not unfamiliar to you and you have seen this plenty of times. All the same height, same weight, same nice figure.. That is the sort of situation that makes up the Philippines.
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.
