My views a rather mixed. I think that everyone has the right to marry whoever they want to, if there is an attraction--then by all means. To each his or her own. Diba?

Why spend time worrying about others. Worry about yourself first.

Korek ka dyan dong, to each his own.

And for ben, follow your heart to where it takes you, that's the mystery of love, because if mixed marriages had not happen, then the evolution of man shouldn't have existed. Pasyensya na sa inyong mga laki nga nabihag.

you're right dodong enzo. afterall it's not about color or race...

You're Right, Mari. It isn't. People that think in those lines are simple racists and bigots.
Unworthy of our time at all.

It's all about apples, oranges and bananas.

I am disappointed with all of this, preciousNpolite.  What we do with our lives is our own prerogative. FYI ..the other side of the fence is NOT alway green and ATM sometimes comes with empty bank account.

So what! I like my Gucci ... my Burberry, ... Havainians and more, it's because we work hard for it and I deserved it. Oh, yeah I was legal way before I said "I do."

Just read on this thread....

For Preciousnepolite, I admired your being brutally frank / straightfordness but frowned on your one-sidedness and hypocrisy...the trend is not prevalent in the Philippines but all over the world... it is the same story but different manifestations...

It is our culture of a close knit family and not disintegration like in the west because of impersonalism.  When you marry one... you cannot evade extended familities... when you support the whole clan it is your choice... it is not mandatory

But one thing for sure... the expats loved to be idolized... to be put in a pedestal... when you are whites, the natives feel you're special... and your way of returning is through your wallet... ang uban man gud hambogero sad.

And why complain??? It is a fact that some of those who married Filipinas are after of sincere domesticated service that they could find with their own race...seldom!  and when you treat your wife to be that... how you manifest your thanks when you are priveleged? di ba sa kwarta?  ug ngano nga magtihink man ka kon duna.???

About the women having illicit affairs? these could be boiled down to some shortcomings , imperfections that came to marriage which are also happening not only in the Philippines.

There are a lot more....bisan tinood , one must speak the other truth and not for your the part that favors....

Sr. Ayag, Está con gracias y la admiración sinceras que saludo le. Sus observaciones al escritor original son perfectas y capturan la naturaleza ideal, altruista que fue pensada por sus observaciones originales. Me sentía personalmente atacado cuando ella dicha esto porque mi propia madre, un Boholana-expat nunca casó a extranjero para venir a los estados. En el contrario, ella, como muchas otras enfermeras de la filipina vino aquí para las visas médicas; iguales para mi padre. El escritor original no tiene ninguna credibilidad para decir esto. Sus observaciones áspero me disgusto personalmente su audacitia y. Pero ésa es mi opinión personal. Gracias Sr. Ayag por sus pensamientos en la materia.

Le saludo,
Siempre

Hi Bran Lorenz,

Thank you for concurring my perception about what Precious was talking about ( though am not well-versed in Spanish ).

I like people who are candid about anything... but please present the two sides of the coin...

That's not for sure at all - many expats feel uncomfortable with the idolization/friendship based on perceived wealth; it's so obviously not genuine.

Mr. Ben,

The feeling is mutual... the less priveleged also felt uncomfortable mingling with the wealthy... but one must not complain that Filipinas marry for the Money for Expats marry Pinays for Service till death whom they could seldom find with their own color... when no money.... no honey. hehehe

Di ba Bran Lorenz? If we compare the culture of Filipinas and Whites marrying wealthy men... whom do you think is more genuine????

Mo agree ko nimo, Mr. Jun Ayag. Filipinos, in general, tend to stay together and make the marriage work, even if there are marital and economic problems. Here in the United States, and I dare say this, marriages come and go. Couples marry and divorce as if it is a mere 'relationship'. I cannot help but observe the deterioration of the true meanings of marriage as a 'life-long' bond. Secularism has made that evident. I do not know if the modern day Filipino couples retain the old customs of the sanctity of marriage, but from seeing and knowing many neo-Filipino American couples, marriages work. They tend to be more serious.

I could never dream of marrying a non-Filipina, but that is my own personal view. So of course, I have a bias to begin with.

American women, for the most part, want to live the high life, Mr. Jun Ayag.
They want a big ring, drive their BMW Z5s/ Porsche Carreras'/ Mercedes S-Class, have the husband's credit card for their daily shopping and trips to the mall, have 2-3 kids, pick them up from soccer practice, get their pedicures/manicures/salon, live an easy--stress free life. Money is key. Many marry for money, many do marry for love etc. I have a friend who graduated medical school 2 years ago, is now a resident in Emergency Medicine, and this guy never dated outside his race before (he is Indian), now he's 28 y.o, and dating a girl who is 4 years younger than him and spends most of his money. I will not deny that she is extremely attractive. Blond, physically well-endowed, but sometimes I question her motives. Is it for love, or is it for Ranjit's wallet? All I know is that Ranjit's family is angry at him for not dating an Indian; or for his case, not proceeding with the arranged marriage his family had in place.

Didn't anyone or  anybody dared to kick her ass out of Bohol???

Stupid biyatch!!!

Why did she stay there?

Is it because she cant afford to live like she is on a vacation  in her country???

Is she a citizen there in the first place???

bol-anon_ko, the ladies have calmed down already ;) and we had let bygones be bygones, so to speak.  We are now embracing Precious as a real family member of Tubag Bohol and I think she does too.  We all learn and let go and move on.  Yes, there were heated and hurting words said in all directions but the wounds healed already.  The scars will not go away but that's ok because that would serve us as reminder to be mindful to the feelings of others.  :D

thought-provoking, lindy, like which comes first, the egg or the chicken?  hmmm, when something is forgiven, is it because we forget first or we forgive first? ???
