So maybe it’s actually foreign men who need the visa, not the Filipinas!We Filipinas can also travel to any country in the world with our Philippines passport so why would we need them if we can already get things on our own!?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!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.
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 !
The only real difference is the higher value of their currency in the world, which just makes their own countries very expensive to live in and other countries cheaper to visit!
But this only works if they earn money in one of the expensive countries. And yes, poverty does exist in western countries, it just doesn’t the same impact in a news headline as a photo of a small brown child with flies on her face!
Yes, there are perhaps some Filipinas who have this reason but not in most cases!
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.
If I was looking for a sugar daddy, I must have been blinded by that magic white skin again!
