Is it time to make a Filipina your first choice to marry?

Is it time to make a Filipina your first choice to marry?

November 11, 2020

With the sad state of marriage today in America where I live, and how easy it was to find a Filipina to marry, it makes me wonder if a guy should look for a Filipina as his first choice in a wife.

There is no divorce in the Philippines, and that was a plus to me.

A Filipina is known for taking care of her man and of her household.

Many value an older man as compared to someone in their twenties. If you have not found a good wife and are in your thirties or above, perhaps you should focus on a woman from the Philippines. Young men have a distince advantage over us older men, I will admit, but they must seize it by being marriage-minded.

Why wait until you are 53 like I did to find a good wife?

Helping your Filipina make the right kind of Friends

Helping your Filipina make the right kind of Friends

Leaving all you’ve ever known in your life and moving thousands of miles across the planet to live with someone you are still relatively unfamiliar with, is a daunting move.  Your wife will need friends.

But she needs friends in high places, not low places.  She needs friends who are mature and can help her be spiritually grounded.

They don’t have to be Filipinas. I will share a few of my experiences in this area in today's podcast.

Things I’ve Learned about my Filipina Wife

Things I’ve Learned about my Filipina Wife

November 6, 2020

It seems like only last week when I was waiting with anticipation at the local airport for my wife to arrive.  There was some snow on the ground on a cold morning on the 11th of January 2016.  The last time we were together we were waiting for my early morning flight out of Davao City to board on May 22 of 2015, so it had been eight months. 

When the plane arrived, I went downstairs to find her and there she was, looking for her luggage, all bundled up in warm clothes looking smaller than I had remembered.  She was so cute.  When I saw her, there were no fireworks on her part, no running to each other with arms stretched out, she merely said “Let’s go to the car”, or something like that, after we hugged. 

I was hoping for a little more display of emotion but it is only fitting that from the moment we meet in America to be together as husband and wife, that I began to learn new things about her, because we got married very quickly.  Now that we are here together, we will continue to learn about each other.  Here are many things I have learned about her that I hope can be of some benefit to you.

Respecting the Profound Sacrifice your Filipina makes for You

Respecting the Profound Sacrifice your Filipina makes for You

Something that’s easy to get overlooked once your Filipina fiancé or spouse has arrived in your country is the fact that she has departed the Philippines and that is a very emotional time for her. I will try to help you see things through the perspective of the Filipina, because that will help you greatly to relate to her, especially early on.

After being married to my wife I met on Christian Filipina for 5.5 years, I am increasingly in awe of the sacrifice she made to be my wife.  It is difficult to put into words since I can’t relate to her experience and I’m not sure I’d be able to deal with it the way she has. We are planning on retiring in the Philippines and even have a home there, but sometimes the thought of leaving America causes me some stress. It is only natural when leaving all your familiarities.

How I am Falling more in Love with my Filipina Wife

How I am Falling more in Love with my Filipina Wife

Even before I married my Filipina I told her that true love wasn’t based on feelings or how two people were getting along with each other. I wanted to take care of this woman and meet her needs and show her love.  What I didn’t expect was that I would develop such strong feelings for her but it is possible that is what happens when a man totally commits to a woman, even if they have not had the typical length of time to get to know each other.

My wife knows if she needed my eyes I would give them to her and that I would die for her.  I try to defer to her as much as possible, which I also let her know after we were engaged. It isn’t all as serious as that though.  For over five years now together in America I occasionally observe things about her that make me fall in love even more with her, and I am talking about in an emotional sense this time.  Here are the ones I can remember…
