If you are keen on meeting a Filipina woman, one of the things you need to be aware of is that there are many Filipina dating problems and one of them is this: There are married Filipina women who, by their own admission, log on to Filipino dating sites like Cherry Blossom Dating to find men better than their husbands
Now why does this Filipina dating problem happen, you might ask. Well, it happens because these women are unhappily married because the husband is a lousy overall, and is the kind of man who does not financially support his wife and cheats on her to boot. (If he’s not a cheating a-hole, he could very well be a hopeless junkie.)
Although not all Filipino men are bad, there are men who DO fit the description above. While it’s problematic enough to fall for a married woman, what is worse is that there’s no divorce in the Philippines.
When couples separate, they need to go through a lengthy annulment process which can take a year and a half (and courtroom appearances) to get done. Sounds hopeless, right? It is, especially if the woman does not have the money for annulment, AND she has fallen in love with another man.
So, that said, if there’s a Filipina woman you’re really interested in, make sure you check on her real civil status. Even if she’s estranged from her husband for how many years, if her marriage has not been annulled yet, your relationship won’t go far, and you might even land in prison because of existing adultery laws in the Philippines.
One way to check if a Filipina is really single is to check https://www.ecensus.com.ph/Secure/frmIndex.asp and request for a Certificate of No Marriage or CENOMAR record on her. In the Philippines, both parties must submit CENOMAR copies before they can be issued a marriage license.
You can request a CENOMAR if you want to check if your Filipina girlfriend is really single to avoid this kind of Filipina dating problem.
