Filipinas marry foreigners for money not love
CHERYL ARCIBAL, GMANews.TV
02/03/2009 |

MANILA, Philippines- The inability of the Philippine economy to produce high-paying jobs especially for women has pushed Filipinos to marry foreigners as a way to provide for their families, the study Country Gender Assessment by regional lender Asian Development Bank said.

The number of Filipinos marrying foreigners have also tripled in just a span of eight years from 7,819 in 1998 to 24,954 in 2006.

It is also estimated that currently, 300,000 Filipinos, 92 percent of whom are women, are married to foreigners mainly from the United States, Japan, Canada, the United Kingdom and South Korea.

"(I)n the Philippines (as elsewhere), the phenomenon of 'mail order brides' is not uncommon. In the absence of employment prospects and with families to care for, many women view marrying a foreigner as an easy ticket to an overseas life with steady remittances. With the advent of the Internet, chat rooms, and text messaging the marriage migration numbers are on the rise," the ADB said.

Data from The Commission on Filipinos Overseas showed that Filipino women marrying men from East Asian countries tend to be younger and less educated. These foreign men also usually are at least 40 years older than their Filipino brides.

"Reports indicate that more women apply for 'marriage visas' to Japan as a result of Japan reducing its official demand for entertainers," ADB said.

In 2005 Japan has imposed a stricter immigration policy following Tokyo's inclusion in a US watchlist of high incidence of human smuggling.

ADB said Manila should undertake measures to protect Filipino women as those who marry foreigners that they do not know face enormous risks.

"Many of the men live in remote areas and are unsuccessful with women from their own culture, who they feel are spoiled and have too many freedoms. Instead, they want women with 'traditional' family values who, once in the country, have nowhere to turn and are completely at their mercy," ADB said.

Among the recommendations of the ADB was to tap remittances from overseas Filipinos for productive investment and sustainable livelihood opportunities for women so that migration becomes a choice rather than a necessity.

Where I am, in Japan, most anecdotal evidences seem to support this claim. Even now, my hands are tied up to the drafting and translation of postnuptial agreement on division of Philippine properties between a 66-year old Japanese and his 28-year old Filipina wife who first came to me practically jumping at each other's throat as they hurled accusations against each other.

Since 1995, Filipinas marrying Japanese have topped 7000 every year but close to half of these marriages end up in divorce. Tsk, tsk...

Noting against this at all. This is another manifest of Globalization, and the humanistic intrinsic need to search for greener pastures.

Europeans immigrated abroad in the 19th century and early 20th century to the United States as well as to Canada--for exactly the same reasons: Greener Pastures.

If anything, the fact that foreign men are preferring to marry Filipina women speaks wonders for the Filipina. And it honors the generalization of her being:
a) Hardworking
b) Loyal
c) Family-oriented
d) Religious
e) Patient
 f) Intelligent

My niece went to Japan the first time in 1986 as a cultural dancer, a time when our country experienced economic set backs under Cory. The obvious reason was to look for a greener pasture. A year after, she was on vacation with her 50 yo Japanese suitor. The Jap built her a house in the province and entrusted her money to convince her about his marriage proposal. She was not inclined to marry that Jap because of age gap. She was still 18 yo that time. When she went back their relationship broke up and she found another Jap slightly older that she was. They got married here in our country and bore two children. The younger Jap was an ordinary employee whose income was much lesser than what my niece had. So this negates the presumption that she married the younger Jap for greener pasture. Lately, the marriage broke up when my niece was in vacation, because the Jap couldn't return anymore the money he borrowed from my niece. He left their home without even notifying her wife why and where? Only then when the authorities traced this person that he returned to their home and opened a divorce proposal to his wife because of the irresponsibilities he had. Now they are already separated and still my niece with her two grown up kids are staying in Japan, still enjoying their lives there. But, he lived unhappily ever after.

STEREOTYPING i could say.

dili tanan oi! Pero ug ang uban nga mao ilang purpose to marry foreigner, i dont care. I still salute them kay di baya tingali lalim maminyo ka or mo dulog ka ug tawo nga wa ka ganahi.

I overstayed in the US for more than a decade pero i never think of marrying para maka papel kay wa jud ko kakita ug lalaki nga akong giganahan. ( I even thought i was a lesbian  ;D  ;D  ;D ) Mao nga kadtong nangamenyo para maka datung ug maka papel, I RESPECTED YOUR DECISIONS peeps SALUDO JUD KO NINYO and more power! (ayaw lang usba inyung kinaija ha? labi na tong nakabana ug MADATUNG?)

Could be true pero dili tanan. Ug moingon man gud ta tanan filipina nagmenyo ug foreigner kwarta ray gihigugma nag generalize na ta ani. Ang assumption man gud sa uban ingkalit ra ka ug menyo sa lalaki nga wa nimo nakita pero this is not true. Mostly namenyo ug foriegner bisan unsa pa na nga means sila nagkaila penpal,personal introduction by family member or sa chat ing undergo na sila ug getting to know each other wala man na sila mohamag rag menyo. Plus ang paper works lang gani sa pag obtain ug visa dili lalim i scrutinize ka ug maayo unsa jud ka true imong purpose ug intention  ug tinuod ba mong naghinigugmaay. Ug nagmenyo man gani ang filipina nga walay gugma sa gimenyuan nga banyaga 100 percent sure ko kining bayhana way kalipay.

In my case yes tinuod namenyo ko ug foreigner pero dili gyud money akong number one intention.Ipokrita ko ug moingon ko nga wa na maapil, kinsa bay gusto nato magmenyo ug magkalisod lisod wala di ba. Ug smart ka nga babae usa na ang financial stability inig mamenyo ka sa imong wish.

Gamay pa jud ko gusto na ko mamenyo ug caucasian. Unya sa nadaga na kong hingkod kay wa may nanguyab nako mao nakaingon jud ko sa ahong kaugalingon Patay candidate jud ko ani sa dagang bakot.Mao ingbalik to ahong hilig ug foreigner. Ug gusto pa jud ko magmenyo ug kwarta gipili siguro nako ang doctor ug attorney. First jud nakong gibati aning akong nabana karon kalooy kay sa iyang profile iyang giingon kay Farm Laborer ra daw siya.Akong hunahuna nga pareha sa laborer sa atua. Good Catholic sad siya maoy akong gipangita sa laki unya kalooy ang nga dili ning akong bana makakita ug pangasaw on kay lagi laborer ra mao akong gisuwatan. Napuno baya ko ug biay biay sa akong mga kauban sa trabaho sa una kay bu**** kono ko nganong ang farm laborer gipili nga naay daghan daw kwartahan.Gisungog pa ko nila nga nakita na daw nila akong future naglukdo ug mais unja naay daghan bata nagsunod. Ingtuo gyud ko pag ayo sa akong nabana nga farm laborer ra siya mao shocking kaayo pag abot nako diri ultimo iyang chicken shade mas nindot pa sa among balay hahahah. As in low kaayo akong expectation sa akong nabana. Murag nailad lagi ko kay gipili nako siya kay abi naho pareha ming way nahot naunsa tag ija man diay ug farm. Kining akong case mo prove jud ko ani nga dili money ug greener pasture akong motive kundi true love kay very low kaayo akong expectation.Bahala na ug pobre akong bana basta relihiyoso mao na akong permi sulti.

Nakatan-aw ko one time og ducumentary about Filipina wives of Korean farmers. Luoy kaajo kay kasagaran nila nakalitan sa treatment nga ilang nadawat. Nihit man kunog mga babaye didto, unja ang mga farmers nangitag mapangasawa for sex, companionship and free labor. Dihay gi-interview (several of them Bisaya ang pinulongan) nga nagmahay intawon kay kuwang in terms of companionship pero bugbog sarado in terms of sex and free labor.

Money and/or love. Both reasons. Pero wala tay figures kon pila ang naminyo mainly for money or mainly for love. Ang mas importante kon unsay nahitabo sa pagpanglabay sa panahon. Kon giunsa nila pagmatuto ang kinabuhing minyo ug giunsa nila pagpadaku ang ilang mga anak.

Moderno na man ni nga notion, marrying for love. For centuries love was never part of the equation. Nahimuot bitaw ko sa ahong nabalitaan about Germany several years ago, nga dihay question about arranged marriages between aging Indian women and young German men. Investigations revealed that the consideration for marriage was the acquisition of German citizenship. The Indians paid a lot of money. The couples would divorce right after the objective was achieved. (I've been told that an enterprising young man married this way three times before he turned 30, and made a lot of money.) The courts ruled that there is nothing in the law that required love as a prerequisite for marriage. As long as the bride and groom have all the qualifications and none of the disqualifications, they can marry under German law. Ambot lang kaha kon nagsigi pa ba ni nga practice didto.

Sakto ka Koddi. Pero mostly jud sa nagmenyo ug money ang reason way kahapsay ang pamuyo ug kinabuhing menyo mao ni moresulta magbulag. Naa koy sister inlaw(ex na karon) Ang adopted brother sa akong bana namenyo ug filipina mas una pa sila namo ug kamenyo.Karon nag ingon ni nako ang filipina before mi naabot diri nga mao kono nagmenyo siya sa igsoon sa akong bana kay aron maabot diri sa america aron makapangita ug trabaho aron makatabang sa pamilya. Tinuod gyud iyang sulti kay pag abot diri namugos jud siya mangita ug trabaho bisan dili gusto ang bana kay kaigo baya ila income nila. Pila ka tuig gi divorce gyud niya ang igsoon sa akong bana. Very unhappy iyang marriage the whole time daghan siya complain.Kung kami pasultion wala baya silay problema unta pero siya ang nagbuhat problema bunga ni sa bad intention niya nagmenyo in the first place sa tawong wala siyay gugma. Sa una favorite siya sa akong mother inlaw na feel gyud to nako hehehe then iya giaway among inlaws gipasanginlan nga gi spoil kono nila ang iya bana. Na branded nuon to siya sa akong inlaws ug materialistic kay bisan unsay gusto dapat matuman gyud. Permi siya naa sa disco ug daghan barkada. Kas a nagvisit mi nila sa kansas inay mang disco mi kay inglugsong lagi kono ko didto taga bukid mao iya unta ko dalhon disco naunsa ba didto man nuon mi sa hospital nag overnight kay nag comvulsion akong anak.Wa jud to itugot sa kahitas an siguro. Akoy nasayang sa kamenyuon nilang giusikan. Namenyo na akong ex sisterinlaw ug balik one month human siya na divorce.

Well in my opinion I think I know now how to detect a "bad" filipina or a good one. I think is too obvious when a filipina is just there for money but some foreigners (overall the ones that marry bar girls ¬¬) seem blind.

I think with an easy check they could know if she is clean or not but I do not know why they do not do them. They just say "no she is not like the others"

I am 25 yo. My gf is 23 yo, she is filipina and lives in Cebu. We never were interested in each other, all that happened between us was unnespected for both of us.
She earns the minimum filipino wage right now.

I do not send her money and she never asked me for a peso even beeing there.

I told her I won´t marry soon that I need years before that and she didn´t go for other one.

She expends money from her little wage to call me to my spanish mobile and never told me to payback.

She is not interested in come to europe by the moment. She seems happy with her life and she says me "I am poor but I am happy here"

She refused from me a work I found to her in call center with more money by far than her current wage. Her reason was that in that work she would earn more money but she won´t have a good shift to chat to me cause of the difference of time.

She doesn´t know how much I earn and never asked about it.

Even earning only the minimum wage she has spent quite amount in things for me (unexpected presents overall)

Even borrowing her my old laptop that is not brand new by far (5 years old) she seemed the happiest person in the world and never requested me to buy a brand new one as others do.

She knows I am not looking a future house wife to maintain and that she will have to work as well as me.

When we started to break ice between us she told me what she likes to do when she is on spare time and I found was exactly what I like but I never told her I liked those things.

I think these all signs are good so I think I am safe with her.

Obviously maybe for me is different cause I am young and not and old man. But if people there would think with the brain instead of the ..... hehehe (sorry I did not know other way to explain it) then in some time nobody will hear again "filipinas marry foreigners for money" cause those girls wouldn´t have a chance.

A scammer or a filipina that is looking for money or leaving the country will hurry in all (soon request money for any reason, when is the visa ready, when will you marry me? etc etc) all this things happen in a short time the most and in a medium time in the rest but they show their real face soon :)

This is my opinion of this :P

About why a filipina gf. I wasn´t looking for it. It all happened by surprise.
But I like how she is. How she treat me. And I like her cause she likes the same things I like so we enjoy together always.

Take care all :P

Regards from Spain

It seems we have some change of mind in here from something sort of simliar that I had posted in Expats thread in Tubag.

I do recall many Filipina women in here got really irked off when I had brought this topic up in the past.

As for older men marrying younger aged girls as they say one foot on the bannana peel and one foot on the grave!

As for the part about Good Filipina versus versus gold digger bad girl types yea men should really do they're homework first and not be so blind about chosing the right descent woman here.

Also women here need not fall for a man who is a reject amongst his own race back in his own country.

Many foreigner guys are ugly who come here looking for love and some are on fixed income due to being clinically diagnosed as manic depressed. They receive what we call an SSI if they found unable to work do to non curable chemical imbalances in the head.

These are normally the type of guys who come here. I know plenty foreigner men and most want to play around and not be serious.

There are also really good foreigner men who come here also.

Lorenzo I do not totally agree with you that all Filipina woman or any other women are all those positive characteristics that you have mentioned above.

No one is perfect.

I respect the rights of everyone's feelings and opinions on this topic and look at it from all angles especially as the islands spokesperson on Bohol Expats.

Most the men are not shy to talk about how they treat women and how women treat them.
Its hard being the only foreign female in the group of a bunch of horny and finatic foreigner men who are ga ga ga over Pinay!


LOL! :D
