129 How Important is Sex in Marriage?

June 29, 2021

I’m going to be hitting some topics from a longer upload I made in response to an article called Sex-free marriage anyone? Welcome to the new trend for the wokeys: marrying your best friend. Would you want to sign up for that? I don’t think this is marriage at all. People have been trying to modify or make an idea of marriage that suits them even though it goes against the grain of what has been the norm for a very long time, say the beginning of time. Today I want to talk about this and other ways the marriage bed is being defiled these days. Make no mistake about it, when you marry, sex is an obligation. It is also a great pleasure and gift a husband and wife give to each other.

Subscribe to Casting Beyond The Sea. I think marriage is a big deal and a great deal, I love being married and for a while wasn’t sure it was going to happen. You can see a lot about that on my videos on Love Beyond The Sea but today I want to focus on sex in marriage. Article to look at today

In fact, Nick’s handicap affected far more than relationships. If his story doesn’t inspire you, then you may be beyond hope. He made no excuses. He was born without arms or legs. He, like most of us, realized he wanted and needed a wife.  He is 38 now, having married at 29, and has a lovely wife and four children, thus having achieved his biggest dream. And you?

127 What Would I Do Without My Filipina Wife?

127 What Would I Do Without My Filipina Wife?

June 23, 2021

On a recent YouTube video on Love Beyond The Sea, I received a nice comment that also wanted to know out of curiosity what I would do if I somehow lost my Amazing Aiza. This was in reference to the obvious devotion I have for her and it is only natural to wonder if I have thought about how I would handle losing her. I hadn’t wanted to give that subject much thought but decided that it would be a good upload topic.

Please subscribe to Casting Beyond The Sea so you can hear a conservative Christian view on how I try to manage my marriage to a woman from the Philippines that I married in only 54 days six years ago. My YouTube channel is called Love Beyond The Sea.

There are a lot of differences from our age to our culture to the distance that separated us, yet I have grown to have stronger feelings for my Filipina wife. My love for her goes beyond how I feel about her, I have an obligation to love her and that has not prevented me from falling more in love with her. She knows I am absolutely crazy about her and there is no doctor’s cure available to treat it. She has even asked me what I would do if something happened to her. It would be my worst nightmare.

First, by losing her I am not thinking about her leaving me through divorce. I am more concerned about something happening to her in an accident or illness. The main thing I can do here, is to pray for her safety, which I do daily. I insisted on the safest car she could buy even though it cost more. I feel like I need to protect her any way I can. Another thing I can do to protect our marriage is to be the best husband I can be to her, and that is the thrust of my videos because and something I want to share that with you.

126 Make Financial Decisions TOGETHER With Your Filipina Wife

126 Make Financial Decisions TOGETHER With Your Filipina Wife

June 22, 2021

The topic of money, or finances, comes up frequently in regards to a foreigner and Filipina relationship, especially marriage. After marriage, many people want to know about a man’s obligation to his Filipina wife’s family. I have covered that in previous videos so today I want to look at a different financial angle, that is about including your Filipina in financial decisions. I think a wise man does that. Please subscribe to Casting Beyond The Sea to hear many podcasts about many aspects of foreigner and Filipina life.

This is higher Fil-West Education; I’m going to tell you the things you need to know. The longer I am married the more I can learn and share with other men who want to pursue a Filipina. To pursue you may need to go where you’re wanted (GWYW) or risk nothing changing.

It would be simple to decide that since you have made most if not all of the money that you possess as a married couple, that you and you alone should be the one to make the big financial decisions, and I agree with some of that, but I think it would be a mistake to not learn what your wife thinks.  I believe that a wife should be a helper to her husband, and she is able to provide him a different perspective at times, that he would do well to listen to.  He is still responsible for their decisions and I think he makes better ones when he takes into account what his Filipina has to say. In other words, he needs to listen to her.

What are some examples? Listen to the podcast and I will list some.



125 Is Common Law Marriage a Valid Marriage?

125 Is Common Law Marriage a Valid Marriage?

June 17, 2021

Since people don’t seem to be marrying like they used to, I wanted to make a podcast about common law marriage since that is what some people consider themselves, but are they really married? Subscribe to Casting Beyond The Sea where I detail what I’ve learned in six years of marriage to an amazing woman I married in less than eight weeks. Some may think our marriage was based on false pretenses, it will never work, age gap and different culture. Well, for some of you, going where you’re wanted is going to be your last chance at marriage, and for others of you (younger men) you could go overseas and find a marriage-minded woman who would even want a family.

On Casting Beyond The Sea where you will learn from my experiences as I honestly talk about the need to pursue hard for a wife so you are not spending your life alone, which is a sad way to go. If I got married, why can’t you? I don’t think I’m chopped liver but I had the hardest time getting married. The Guinness Book of World Records was constantly calling me up to see how long the streak of not having a bonafide girlfriend was. I think all bets must have been off that I would find someone.

 What Makes Someone Married? Why Get Married?  This was the first podcast on what is a valid marriage and the second podcast was What or Who Determines if Someone IS Married? Today I want to talk about common law marriage and I will follow up with some original thoughts of my own. I had heard about this term since I was young and there are some misconceptions about common law marriage, and I am going to use an article from a link in to talk about it.

124 What or Who Determines if Someone is Married?

Since I talk about making marriage great again and that this is a channel rated 4M for Mature Marriage-Minded Men only, I thought I should go over the fundamentals of who exactly is married and talk about why you should get married as most people need to. Subscribe to Casting Beyond The Sea where I detail what I’ve learned in six years of marriage to an amazing woman I married in less than eight weeks. Is our marriage valid since we got married so quickly? Some people are aghast at Fil-West marriages, like we are doing something wrong. Since it may be out of the norm, does than invalidate it?

There are people who talk like they are married even though they certainly are not married. They have been dating someone for a while and since they feel safe, they might even call each other a spouse or a husband or a wife, but this is a mistake. In a previous podcast called What Makes Someone Married? Why Get Married? I used an article from to talk about what officially is needed for someone to be considered married.

Today will be about what or who determines if someone is married. I happen to think people who are living together without marriage are not married due to the reality they can pack up and leave for someone better at any time and owe the other absolutely nothing. That doesn’t sound like marriage to me. As you will see, there are also instances where someone might consider themselves married and might even be legally married, yet not in reality. It never used to be this complicated, and in this upload, I want to try to make it clearer.

Listen to the podcast and learn some fundamentals about marriage.

123 What Makes Someone Married? Why Get Married?

Since I talk about making marriage great again and that this is a channel rated 4M for Mature Marriage-Minded Men only, I thought I should go over the fundamentals of what exactly marriage is in the first place and talk about why you should get married as most people need to. Subscribe to Casting Beyond The Sea where I detail what I’ve learned in six years of marriage to an amazing woman I married in less than eight weeks. Was it worth? You bet it was!

Why get married? Companionship, touch, sex, adventure, someone to explore the world with, having children and raising a family. Living life alone without those things, which has become more common, I think leads to a life that is NOT what God wants for most people. Some people are hard to live with, and marriage will either verify that or they will be forced to make some good changes in their life. Marriage is for mutual blessing.

Some say marriage is just a piece of paper, I sure hope not. Some believe that marriage was made to be broken. Others believe their marital union to be so strong it can only be broken by death and biblical divorce such as adultery or the desertion of a non-Christian. What about arranged marriages? What about using an international dating service? I did, that’s how I found my wife after searching for a mind-boggling 30 years. Even an age gap marriage is a marriage. I think when two people consent to marry, and are not being forced against their wills to marry, then they are married. Just remember God sets up guidelines for how to operate within the framework of marriage.

I’ve even heard of a Philippines vlogger claim to be married then confess that he wasn’t. I think marriage is worth it and we ought to get married as soon as possible so we can enjoy more of it over the course of our life. Listen to the Podcast for more.



122 Platonic Parenting is Desperate and Irresponsible

122 Platonic Parenting is Desperate and Irresponsible

June 4, 2021

Platonic parenting? How some start families when romance isn’t happening or wanted.

A growing share of adults are looking for partners to help with parenting — but aren’t counting on finding “the one”

Robin Mock is trying to figure out how she wants to become a mom. She knows she wants to have a child — and soon. She’s 43, in the final stages of divorce and keenly aware that her longtime longing for motherhood has not only not happened, but gets less likely with the passage of time.

So the Los Angeles doctor of audiology is looking seriously at her options, from fostering a child to adoption, from sperm donation to the increasingly popular platonic parenting.

The latter option involves prioritizing partnership above romance, so instead of finding someone you hope to spend the rest of your life with in a couples-focused relationship, you look for someone you feel would be a good parent with whom to share raising a child.

While the practice is growing, critics warn that children do best when their family life is stable — and that’s more likely when they’re being raised by their own married parents who are committed to the children and to each other.

“Children benefit from being raised by two stably married parents,” said W. Bradford Wilcox, a scholar at the Institute for Family Studies and director of the National Marriage Project at the University of Virginia. “And, frankly, married parents have enough challenges sticking together for their kids and one another. Without the bond of married love, platonic parents are much less likely to stick together and give kids the stable, loving family that is best for them.”

Platonic parenting, according to Naomi R. Cahn, a law professor and director of the Family Law Center at the University of Virginia School of Law, is an international movement that probably got a boost from the pandemic because dating slowed down and the ticking of the biological clock may have seemed much louder.

Platonic parenting is also more established within gay and lesbian communities, but as a recent Guardian article notes, it’s increasingly popular with heterosexual singles, too. The news site notes tens of thousands of people have signed up on the matching website, while U.S.-based has 30,000 international members, two-thirds of them heterosexual. In the United Kingdom, has 53,000 members, three-fifths of them women. Some on those sites seek a parenting and romantic partner, others a parenting partner only. The big goal for all members is becoming a parent.

Platonic co-parents could have children a number of ways, including though intercourse, surrogacy, in vitro fertilization and adoption.

People thinking about forming nontraditional parenting partnerships don’t tend to trumpet their decisions, said Patrick Harrison, founder. “Our members keep a low profile because it’s nobody else’s business. They don’t need to rest of society to tell them it’s a good or bad thing,” he told the Guardian.

As noted, there are lots of opinions on the topic, but the phenomenon is driven by a real yearning for parenthood by both men and women who have not found “the one.”

Mock is more than willing to talk about her efforts to be a mom. And she’s trying to be realistic. She is preparing to be ready if she decides to try having a baby: taking prenatal vitamins, checking her fertility and hormones. She’s read avidly about options and she seeks out folks with experience in different ways to have children, including a potential sperm donor and a woman who fostered then adopted a child.

“I’m prepping, prepping prepping,” she said. “And I still know that rationally, everything could look good but I may not be able to get pregnant or, if I do, maybe I can’t carry a child. The likelihood that I’ll do IVF is pretty low, because it’s ridiculously expensive,” she said. “I think I have a couple of years — maybe until I’m 45 — to figure this out.”

That is only part of the article, listen to the podcast for more and my thoughts on why I think this is wrong.

121-Beauty That Lasts Why My Wife Will Always be Beautiful to Me

121-Beauty That Lasts Why My Wife Will Always be Beautiful to Me

June 3, 2021

Men marry for sex right? That’s not a question really, it’s a fact. Men marry for looks right? Same thing. Always been that way, always will be. Don’t feel guilty if that is you. Here on Casting Beyond The Sea, I want to challenge conventional thought on something as essential as marriage because…somebody needs to. You’ve heard the phrase “after she gets old, trade her in for a younger model”, but what does that accomplish? Well, it establishes that someone is selfish and ungrateful, and those are two marriage and relationship killers you should want to avoid.

You might even say that there are expats living overseas in places like the Philippines where I met my wife, who do that very thing. Use, then toss aside, look for another young beauty. I know that men do that, but real men don’t do that. In this podcast I will explain why my Filipina wife will always be beautiful to me.
