That perhaps is one of the most frequently asked questions about Filipino women. There really is no straight answer to that question because it is impossible (and unfair) to generalize people.
But truth to be told, while the majority of Filipino women do marry out of love, there are cases where a Filipina marrying an American guy is made solely for convenience.
Now, when does this happen?
This happens when the Filipino woman sees the American guy as her ticket out of poverty or her ticket to a green card. If you’re looking for potential Filipino brides because you think Filipino women make excellent wives, this is something that you must be aware and be wary of.
One way to avoid having your heart broken is by having a long courtship or dating period between you and a Filipino woman. Do NOT rush to be in a relationship, no matter how desperately you want to be in one.
One of the most important things you can do are the following:
* Check her family background
Many Filipinos believe that a person is only as good as his or her family background, and some parents actually oppose their children’s choice of lover if they find out that the lovers’ parents or siblings suffer from notoriety.
While Filipino women are not their parents, the way they were raised - and what values they were taught - does influence their character. Some parents do teach their children not to ask money from anyone, especially from people they just met, AND to marry for love.
So, if you are really serious about being in a situation where a Filipina marrying an American guy is made out of love, ask about her folks, or better yet, get to know them.
* Check her education
One thing about life in the Philippines is that it’s rather taboo for parents not to send their children through college. Also, Filipino women who graduated from well-known colleges and universities (like the state-owned University of the Philippines) have better chances of employment than those who didn’t.
But aside from employment opportunities, there really is a big difference between educated and non-educated Filipino women. For one thing, their English skills do differ greatly, and then there are other things, like pride and self-esteem, who would rather be known as a Filipina marrying an American guy for love.
* Check if she has a job
Filipino women who are obviously smart but have no jobs are really suspect. They are most likely too lazy and are hunting for someone to support them. In most cases, they’re likely to leave you for someone with more money than you.
There you have it. The tips above are really just some things you can do so that you can find a Filipina marrying an American guy for love.
