I’m not lucky cuz I’m with a white man – we are BOTH lucky to have each other cuz we deserve the best! Check out our DIY Travel Guides here and for cheap hostels around the world, check the list here.) This is also for all the Filipinas who are being judged for dating a Foreigner instead of our Filipino men!Here are the most common misconceptions that I want to clear up – We would love to hear other Filipinas’ stories so please feel free to share your experience below !We’ve had complete independence since 1946 people, get the grip!Western countries have the range of incomes and living standards just like we do.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!If everyone was rich, who would clean the streets, or do menial tasks that no one else wants to do?Ahh western-style economics, making sure we always have someone poor enough to sweep the streets!
I was already travelling on my own long before I met Jonathan (well, I’ve met Jonathan while travelling! Jonathan and I are both long-term travellers and us living and settling down in the UK couldn’t be further from our minds.So it was their choice if you still want to marry despite the condition! We are not rich, but my family lives comfortably, and we were brought up to be independent.Unless they slipped it in the wedding vows without him noticing, ‘…to have and to hold, to pay Lola’s medical bills…wait, WHAT THE F#%! Meaning, if you want to do something, you work for it, and you shouldn’t depend on anyone else to just give it to you!Aha, so being warm and hospitable and loving towards your partner means that you’re a slave? I wonder if these people ever stop to consider that these feelings and actions are returned by the man.British and most other westerners are raised to be very independent.
