The Philippine parents will be proud to have a foreign man marrying into their family.They will see you as the rich relation and they may hit you up for a loan to buy some pigs or build a sari-sari store.By age 21 very few will be concerned by any age gap between the lady and her partner of choice.You should also consider whether you plan to live in Philippines or another country. Investigate the laws of your country before bringing a Filipina wife home with you.The family will accept whatever age gap exists as normal.
This may seem odd in your culture but is perfectly understandable here. Not everyone is that flexible in the range of ages they prefer.Filipinas are often petite, beautiful, and mature but hide their age so well they look extremely young. This first thing you must understand is that the majority of Filipinas are not gerontophobes.Gerontophobia is the fear or hatred of the elderly.If you are looking at Philippine women and you want children you are probably looking at a lady aged from 20 to 40. A 20 year old girl, looking for a man aged 40 to 60, may find herself attracted to a man who is 60 and looking for a lady aged 20 to 40. On the other hand a 40 year old Filipina, looking for a man aged 40 to 60, may find herself attracted to a man who is 40 and looking for a lady aged 20 to 40. With some exceptions, 18 is the age when a girl can legally date a foreign man.There is some controversy about dating a 17 year old, with parental permission, in a non-physical, chaperoned environment but even that has been challenged under established Philippine law.Remember a Philippine lady is looking for more than financial support.She will look up to you for her physical and emotional needs as well as financial support so stay strong and your relationship will thrive, regardless of age gap!She wants an emotionally stable man who can handle a relationship without needing mistresses on the side.Some Filipinas are more motivated by money than others. It helps if a man has the ability to father a child. He should be able to live with her in Philippines or have the capacity to sponsor her if he wants her to come live in his own country. This means physical disabilities you may have will be overlooked as your lady will enjoy taking care of you.The partner to a Filipina needs to have charm, wit and intelligence.This is assumed because you are smart enough to get to Philippines and charming enough to capture her heart so foreigners start with an advantage here.
