So don’t tell me that we Filipinas just stay at home, waiting for our partners to feed us!
Even if someone does decide to remain at home to look after the family and home, that’s a personal choice which also involves a lot of hard work. Again, it may happen in some cases, but before marrying their Filipina wife, the foreigner must already have met the family, right? My parents are both Professional; my younger sister is also a Dentist while my younger brother is about to finish his University degree.
I’ve dated Filipinos before and was even in a long-term relationship with one!
Most of them leave home at the age of 18 and up until then they do household chores; guys and girls!
We share the cleaning in our house, but funnily Jon is better and faster at it than I am!
Young western kids often have jobs when they are growing up, not because the family is poor, but to earn some of their own money and to get some real life experience and responsibility before leaving school.
Jon even leaves the Do Not Disturb sign on the hotel room door because, ‘it feels weird having someone come and clean up after me! Not all White people are rich; this is a hangover of the American occupation.
Ok, so they have more ‘free countries’ than us, but it balances out, because when they pay, they pay big!
