Foreign men and Filipina women – Can this work?
It is always claimed that the European or Americans and Asian do not understand each other or a relationship is not possible. This is because both cultures are so different that certain problems are inevitable. But does that also mean that a relationship between a foreigner and a Filipino woman does not work at? Well, in our opinion no.
It’s true, the Filipinos and the Europeans or American are extremely different. The US for example is one of the richest countries in the world, while the Philippines are among the poorest. Surely everyone has already noticed, who was ever in the Philippines. Because both sides have grown up differently and have therefore different principles, there will also be some problems. In every relationship problems based on the different culture could arise.
But there are also disputes in foreign partnerships as well! If you look at the divorce statistics in Europe, you will be amazed for the first time, because it is relatively high. Should not a marriage be forever? Should both sides not only marry if they are really sure? What we mean by that, is that there can also be problems between a foreign man and a foreign woman.

The same applies to your Filipino woman. If you want to be together or you intend to live abroad, then also your Filipina must make some compromises. In general, this is not a problem, because many Filipina are willing to change some points, especially for a better life and future.
