Dating a goody to shoes
Here, young girls ARE told to esteem the ‘Proverbs 31’ Wife model. Mothers teach their daughters in all strictness that when the day comes that they marry a man, they are to love him faithfully. But as a whole trend, Filipinas by age 17 already know how to keep a clean house, earn money, save money, help raise their baby siblings and have a much higher sense of respect for the authority of their parents. if you expect to date a younger Filipina here, be prepared more often than not to meet with her parents on the first or second date.They respect their parents that much, by and large.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.Today’s American woman, for the most part, does not value or practice the age-old values of a ‘submissive wife who trusts in God’. It’s been a long time since anyone batted an eye regarding a White and Black spouse being married or in a relationship.And this has everything to do with why the age-difference relationship is, to this very day, considered a pariah of society in America despite having such an open mind about interracial or same-sex relationships. (.) But people in America today are very accepting of both these relationship scenarios. if someone shows up at the family reunion or Christmas party and the age difference between spouses is anything more than 10 years.. Comments are made and if the age difference is 20 years or more.. made upon anyone who dares to love or (gasp) marry someone with any noticeable age difference in America. Namely, what I just mentioned about how little girls are taught about self-sufficiency and independence.
Those roots are evidenced in both our national traditions and even our Constitution. America today is hardly a theocracy that looks to God for guidance either in its politics or its entertainment. Congressmen hardly kneel down in prayer before voting on new legislation in search of God’s guidance. It is what is taught around the kitchen table at meal times. Here in the Philippines, Catholic culture is so embedded in the legislation that to commit Adultery is a legal crime. as a whole, Filipina young ladies blow away most young American girls.
People do fall in love, despite differences in race, culture, wealth or age.
It’s not even worth pointing out the times it doesn’t work out because so many same-age relationships end up in divorce that one can’t make the argument that same-age relationships make for better, longer lasting marriages.. However, strangely enough, here in the Philippines..
Family and respect for authority, truly seeking their parent’s blessing and permission to date someone is not a formality here.
These girls truly are raised with a strong sense of Catholic tradition in their everyday life.
