Dating as a young single father
Now, take just a moment to wrap your mind around this, because it will be the crux of what we are discussing here. I tell you, I’ve lost track how many times I’ve seen two or three young ladies walking by and at first glance I thought they were all schoolmates.
Chances are if you live in Europe this is not unfamiliar to you and you have seen this plenty of times. All the same height, same weight, same nice figure.. That is the sort of situation that makes up the Philippines.
So, without any more pretense, let’s get into the thick of this. here in the Philippines it is a very common sight to see a man in his sixties married to a young woman in her twenties with their child or two tagging along.
Personally, I live on the small island of Mactan and I see it at least every other day.
Two men can show up at a party as being openly Gay, living together as spouses and these days nobody dares speak a word against it. slanders are uttered, accusations and judgments are made. People look at a younger woman and assume the ONLY reason she would ever marry him is because he is wealthy. She should be out there, in the world, making her own fortune and not relying on a man who has established some security he’s willing to share with her in marriage.
But that’s all assuming that ‘equality’ has anything to do with non-dependence. In a same-age relationship, if the husband works and the wife doesn’t..
But there’s another unspoken side effect to this individualistic, self-sufficient mantra and it echoes something like this when they are older, “.” The only part of American culture I’ve witnessed that contradicts this mentality is found among conservative religions such as Christianity, Mormonism, Jehovah’s Witness, Seventh-Day Adventist and similar Bible based religions which still hold up the values of the Wife who is both a Help Mate to her Husband, yet submissive to his authority and leadership.
These days the Wife is practically spit upon by contemporary culture.
Christianity is an ‘.” Here, Catholicism is not just one of a multitude of religions that coexist within it’s borders. Catholicism is such a driving force here that marriage is seen as an unbreakable joining of God that no man can render separate. a whole other phenomena is occurring in the raising up of young girls. Some Filipinas are selfish and some American girls are very mature.Today’s American woman, for the most part, does not value or practice the age-old values of a ‘submissive wife who trusts in God’. It’s been a long time since anyone batted an eye regarding a White and Black spouse being married or in a relationship.And this has everything to do with why the age-difference relationship is, to this very day, considered a pariah of society in America despite having such an open mind about interracial or same-sex relationships. (.) But people in America today are very accepting of both these relationship scenarios. if someone shows up at the family reunion or Christmas party and the age difference between spouses is anything more than 10 years.. Comments are made and if the age difference is 20 years or more.. made upon anyone who dares to love or (gasp) marry someone with any noticeable age difference in America. Namely, what I just mentioned about how little girls are taught about self-sufficiency and independence.It is not a rare occurrence here to see older men happily married with much younger women.
Now, people are people and you’ll find some unhappy couples if you look around enough.I am a firm believer that the solution for meeting more people is online dating.
