Filipinas

Another site dealing with West Filipina marriage is run by Bob Lingerfelt at

http://filipinawives.com/ .

His stated intent is:

"We don't try to make marriages to Filipinas, we try to make marriage to Filipinas better!"

Well worth a visit and has a different slant to mine. For instance he asks:-

"So You Want to Marry a Filipina? " and "So you STILL want to marry a Filipina... "

He discusses the controversial issue of " Fact & Fiction about Mail Order Brides "

    PREAMBLE

    CAVEAT EMPTOR

    Most of the assertions and opinions are often based on fairly limited, first-hand experience (See My First Venture..). Most of the material is my opinionated re-hash of listings to the late, excellent, free, Fil/Western, listserv, support group, Jeff Hollis's Mahalkita, and the more racy, extant, offshoot, Ray Bacon's Mag-Anak. Some was picked up from another great list, Asialink ($US10 per year).

    This is an on-going project as much to amuse me as to inform others. The diaries covering my first trip to find my dream-woman and subsequent, disappointing developments will be appearing too. So, too, will the diary of my recent (July, 1999) trip with, so far, a promising outcome.

    Any comments or suggestions can be sent to:-

    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~DISCUSSION~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

    "If a man gets onto a train with a view to reach a certain destination and on the way the train breaks down, you will not consider the man guilty of an inconsistency if he gets out of the train and employs other means of reaching his destination." These days, of course, substitute "person" for "man". Or, maybe,considering our theme, "woman".

    Why Western men like Filipinas

    There are, of course, attractions for men other than the escape from feminist values to the traditional, family orientated females.

     

    Filipinas are pushovers?

    To be continued.....
