The Philippine Islands are an ideal place to live in General, and even more so to live in retirement. All year round excellent weather, sea, many interesting places and activities (diving, surf). For a pensioner from Europe or America Filipino prices for housing, food and entertainment are just perfect.
In the Philippines, you can live and do not deny yourself anything on 1 000 – 1 500 $ per month. The average pension of our friends from Europe and the USA is 3,500 Euros. A big plus to the pension can be considered personal savings in the Bank account of almost every European. It is not difficult to calculate that life in the Philippines is much cheaper than in Europe or the USA. There is an obvious benefit in shortening pension years in a warm and not expensive tropical country.
Real estate in the Philippines is much cheaper than in Europe or in the United States. Beautiful house with sea views and a plot of land near the sea can be purchased for a couple of million pesos (about 47 – 48 thousand $). In Minsk, for example, for such a price you can buy one on the outskirts. Many foreigners buy land in the Philippines and then build their dream home there (after selling their “old dream” house in Europe or in the USA).
A huge disadvantage of the Philippine real estate market is the law that the land, as well as the real estate itself, can be acquired only by a citizen of the Philippines or a joint venture (the share of the Philippines in the authorized Fund is not less than 51 %). Here is here the and need a Filipino wife as never.
As a rule, the owners of all real estate acquired by foreign husbands in the Philippines are their wives. Do not think that a Filipino wife after a divorce is so easy to “grab” all the property of a foreign husband. Foreigners are practical people and they made up a marriage contract, so as not to spend then in court for many months, sharing forks, spoons and other jointly acquired property.
Haven’t you ever wanted to start your life from scratch, in a new country, with new friends, spouses, etc. So foreign pensioners have a great opportunity to live another life in the Philippines with a Filipino wife. Young and beautiful wife for an elderly man – it’s cool))) And it does not matter that she coveted the fact that you are a foreigner and does not have any feelings for you.
Foreigners find Filipinos very suitable for married life
In turn, the girls are so grateful to their white husband (and if the Filipino is grateful for something, it’s for real) that it is already drawn to love. By themselves, they are obedient, hardworking and do not speak against. A man who is used to that with a woman constantly have to fight and something to prove, nothing else is necessary. World statistics show that the best nurses, nurses and nannies are Filipinos, besides, she agrees to work for a lower salary than others, which, compared to what she can earn here (approx.in the Philippines), just huge.
With regard to the island Samal and Davao city. Pensioners from Germany, Switzerland, USA, Italy and Canada like to settle here. I make such conclusions because I judge by those people whom we personally know or met in Samal bars and in Bureau of Immigration in Davao.
Now I will draw a typical portrait of a foreign husband who lives on the island of Samal or in Davao. The man for 50 (even for 70 is), in the native country lived in the capital or near it, had a stable income from own business or highly paid work, was married earlier, there are senior children. The external data will be write – ordinary men over 50, not outstanding beauties.
Filipino women dream of a foreign husband because of the following reasons:
- The majority of Filipinos grew up in poor families with many children or families with average incomes. Daughters of rich parents would rather choose a husband for love, not for profit. A foreign husband will be able to support his wife and her family.
- In principle it takes place all the bride’s family (parents, numerous brothers, sisters and their families) cease to work at all or don’t push themselves, and live on the money that gives them in-law-a foreigner. You need to be ready for this and you can not turn away from financial assistance to relatives, because you can run into a conflict.
- In most cases, the girls do not even have a passport, because for obtaining documents you need to pay decently. Local as an identification document uses a pass that is issued to them at school or a pass to the place of work.
- The level of education of Filipino brides is very low, some barely know how to write and read. Basically, they finished only primary public school, because for the continuation of training you need to pay money and not small. A good job in the poorest country in Asia or abroad with such data is not available, and a successful marriage will allow the girl not to strain for food all day as a saleswoman in the market or a milkmaid on the farm.
- Education. Everywhere in the Philippines: in the family, on television in TV series and movies, in TV shows and talk shows, the dream of a Prince is cultivated in women. Filipino princes, as a rule, are already all busy, and not as rich and attractive as foreign ones. Filipina sleep and see a foreign husband, though not the first freshness, may and related to you as to the furniture, because he bought the woman and her entire family in the bargain.
Portrait of a typical Filipino wife: a girl or a young woman not older than 30, good appearance, lack of education and profession, from a large family, a virgin (there are exceptions, but rarely, because such a bride is valued much less).
In most mixed marriages in the Philippines, the husband is the master and the wife is the servant. That’s just not err at the expense of the gentle nature of the Filipino wives. Yes, they are usually disenfranchised and can not openly confront her husband, they are well aware of what position they are, but a woman will always find how to manipulate a man (sex, life, food, etc.).
Where you can meet your future wife
Everywhere. On the street, in stores, in cafes, in restaurant, wherever and whenever you want. You only need to pay attention to it. If she’s not already married, you can flirt with her. Very often Philippine women are building you eyes and even in a brazen offer themselves as wives.
Here you see how she walks beside you and you know what happens next: she turns, smiles, giggles and gets embarrassed. When this happens – she makes it clear she’s interested in you. Go to her and say “Hello” and again you know the further course of events: she invites you to her home to meet with his family. You come to her house, and there is nothing surprising in the fact that even the first time I saw you, you discuss wedding plans! Filipino girls are very good at sex as well as girls from go-go bars, but getting married you do not pay for sex 😉
Girly bar – a special place, a bar, which are constantly different girls. There are a lot of such bars on Samal island. The man comes to Girly bar, drinks, has a rest, and at the same time gets acquainted and chooses the applicant for a hand and heart. By the way, for drinking girls with whom a man communicates, he pays.
In these bars you can find and companions for one night – Filipino prostitutes. Be vigilant and careful, because your weakness can cost you dearly.
Girly bar in the Philippines
Beauty contests, dance and song contests. Filipinos are obsessed with beauty pageants. In any city, village has its own beauty Queen. The competition focuses on the most beautiful and talented. Is from whom to choose. Here only participate in the contests of ambitious girls who can easily refuse if they consider that the man is not worthy of it.
Marriage agencies and Dating sites (both in your country and in the Philippines). If a man does not want to go to the Philippines to find his wife, he can start remote reconnaissance. There are many specialized online resources where you can find mountains of information about Filipino women, Philippine laws on marriage, family, children, etc.
There are specialized marriage agencies that will pick up a girl based on needs, arrange a man correspondence with potential brides, send photos, videos, talk about the family.
Agencies will help you in the organization of marriage (collect documents, buy tickets, all agree with the authorities).
If you are going to live in your country, a representative of the Agency can arrange a marriage at a distance, as well as deliver your wife to your place of residence.
Many foreigners do so, correspond for a while, and then come to verify the information on the spot. If all the foreigner is satisfied, he agrees with the bride’s parents (if any) or with other family members about the wedding.
