Why do so many Filipino women want to marry American or Australian men?
Where to start with this one?
because the Phillipines is a relatively poor country and marriage to a man from a rich country probably means a “richer” life.
cos they are fed up with small skinny filipiono penis, they need all the time thick n stronger stick in them
Money? Better standard of living perhaps?
I am a Filipino but I don’t dream marrying an American, Australian, or any.
I’d say some Filipinos go for that but if you ask all women here, they’d say they’d rather want to marry a person of their own race. For 20,000 women, only one is likely to get married to a foreign man.
some do marry Americans or Australians or whoever possible because they want to escape from the reality they see in the Philippines. There are some possibilities to happen in marrying a foreign individual.
Some well-off also marry these kinds of people even if they don’t need because in the philippines, we don’t really care about anyone’s race. Anyone is accepted here. That answers why we are not born racists.
To answer your follow up question, Americans or Australians marry Filipinos because we take care of relationship and we were born and raised to value everyhting. One morething is that, we can easily adjust to different culture…
Only a Filipino can answer this well…
For more results, repost this question under the category of TRAVEL > ASIA PACIFIC > PHILIPPINES..
There are many Filipino participants there….
I think that so many Filo women want to marry American or Australian men because they each have their own reasons for doing or wanting to.
I dont think that it is possible to put all the Filo women together in saying that they want to marry for money or better life, maybe it is because they find the men loving, caring and adorable. I know that if you were to ask 10 different women this question they would each have a different answer.
For you 2nd question you asked the same sort of question but just turned the nationalities around.
I cant answer on behalf of a Filo women or an Aussie man, but i can say that you have sterotyped the people mentioned in your question.
Maybe you could have asked about other “white men” or “asian women” But sadly that’d still be a sterotype.
The other thing is that you didnt say which nationality you are. So how do you know that the figure of filo women wanting to marry aussie or american men is so high?
Here’s a little insight for you though. I’m australian and my husband is chinese and we live in Australia, so are you saying that he married me for money or a better life? I doubt it, he and i married because we love, care, adore, cherish, trust, each other.
I hope you find the answer that you are looking for.
So they can get out of that god forsaken hell hole. My brother married one when he was in the service in the 60’s. Adopted her 2 kids too. She was never more than one big pain in the….kidney.
Ungrateful surly reeling-ripe vain shard bone ratsbane scut! And still too mean to die.
This is one American man ended up wanting to jump in the time machine
its a green card to get in our country thats all,you see it all the time how they marry the men stay for 3mths or so in a marriage then divorce them, bingo their us or aust citizen.and what i hate they dont even want to learn our culture speaks english i reckon not there language follow our rules
its to deep for me
it’s because of poverty and for them marrying a foreigner will make their life better.
it is sad when people are stereotyping. It is possible to love and cherish someone no matter what race he or she belongs to. There is nothing wrong if the other has come from poor country and the other one from a richer country. But in saying that women or men marrying people from richer country for gold or better life happens and it’s not fair when filipino women are being stereotyped because it also happens to other countries like russia, india, thailand,vietnam, it doesn’t where you are in this world. I live in Australia and sometimes even local australian would marry somebody for money to rip them off their wealth or money or property. So we don’t have the right to pass on judgement and stereotype these people
Stereotyping cant help.But I think it depends on the circumstances of a person.Lets just say,a common reason while a Filipina marries, not really want to marry,a foreigner because she believes that it can lift her out of poverty .She is looking for a Knight in Shining Armor.But in some cases,she ended up a battered and abused housewife. Ive seen a number of them here in Australia where I live .Some Filipinas who married Australians are very well off and satisfied with their lives while sadly some Filipinas did some acts shameful to the Filipino Community. Short to say, some Filipinas were lucky and some are not.
Philipine women MUST learn that the only way to get rid from the poverty is pursuing EDUCATION.Be smart girls to not rely on your beauty because beauty won`t stand forever.Don`t be so desperate marry foreigner out to get rid from poverty.But as you wish girls if you want your destiny as men`s toys.
Why dont you ask the question- Why do so many Australian or American men marry Filipino women?
Easy answer to this one.
Filipinas strive to marry white foreigners to escape from their misery of domestic poverty and overbearing mothers who force their daughters to be the breadwinners for the family.
Hi,i am an aussie who has been to the phils back and forth to be with my fiancee there,i’m planning to go live there in the future,it’s not about filipinas,or aussies or yanks,its about being with the person you love so much,i have known her for 2 yrs,and cant wait to settle there,a wonderful hard working family she is part of,and i love them all,and i get it back from them,like i said i dnt go looking for a filipina girl,i just found her by chance,and we are so lucky.It’s not all smut and doing things for money there,there are genuine lovely people in that country,and i cant wait to be there again.
Question is –> why so many Aussie or American men wanted to marry Filipinas? It is simply because, most of these men are losers in their own country and they couldn’t find a nice woman to marry!
In response to jayjays comment above, may I respond by saying that the reason many Australian men marry Filipina women is that Australian women are not known for their gentle nature, kindness, compassion and understanding….quite the opposite. They have their social and legal equality with men but their attitude toward men stinks as a rule…you screw them once but they screw you of everything you have with the support of the legal system. THATS WHY. !!
Facts are simply: proverty, corruption, and filipino men who can’t afford a living for their Filipinia women. They dream and want a better life for themselves and their family. They would rather live and suffer not really loving any American, Australian, or foreigner as money means more to them then their own feelings.
It is also why most foreigners go to Philippines as women in their own country wouldn’t give them the time or day, nor would they copulate with them as most are old, fat, and don’t know how too treat women. But common to see an old man with younger Flipinia women—they both have their own reasons.
Sign Filipina women
question should be…….. why there’s so many americans/australians wanting to marry us????? because we’re heaps better than womens in their countries???
@Dee you seem to forget that many millions of us cannot pursue our education. Its OK if you have money for school and college but many of us do now. I don’t dream of marrying a foreigner, I dream about finishing my education, but its a far and distant dream for me. I hope one day will come true but its unlikely.
I agree with ‘samwgdavis’ and ‘a filipina in australia’
– filipino women have a totally different mindset about relationships. trust me i’m a younger guy rather than the older white guy standard, my aussie gf’s drove me up the wall, the filipino people are so much better. from what i can tell after spending much time over there, it’s never about poverty, corruption (“filipina woman insight’, you comments are complete rubbish). they main reason why they try to get western man, is the filipino men! they know western men have different attitude towards women.
agree ako sa sinabi ni chiiky25. hindi lang pera ang dahilan kung bakit ang pinipili ng ibang mga pilipina or pilipino na magasawa ng banyaga ng banyaga. May kanya-kanya tayong valid na rason sa mga choices na pinipili natin na mangyari sa ating buhay. Kung ang iba kontento nang manirahan sa pilipinas yon ay sa dahilang nakita nila ang magandang buhay sa pilipinas in terms of life and relationship to another individual. Ang masasabi ko lang..kung nagasawa man ng banyaga or foreigner ang isang pilipino hindi dahil sa pera lang..parang napakalaking insulto naman ito sa mga banyaga na pinakasalan or inasawa lang sila ng pilipino dahil sa kanilang pera or sa kung anong meron sila na pweding i-take advantage ng mga pilipino. Ang pag aasawa ay desisyon ng dalawang taong nasa wastong edad at pagiisip na gawin ang sa palagay nilang makakapagpasaya sa kanilang mga sarili. Basta ako masasabi ko sa mga kapwa ko pilipino na gawin nyo ang sa palagay nyong makakabuti at makakapagsaya sa buhay ninyo. Don’t be afraid to try kasi ma-pilipino man or foreigner ang mapapangasawa pareho-pareho lang ang mga tao. May mababati at may mga tarando and it applied to both pilipino and foreigner. Marami akong nakitang magasawa na di naging successful ang kanilang pagsasama pero marami din namang naging successful. The bottom line is minsan lang tayo mabuhay..practice your freedom and don’t be afraid. Huwag pansinin ang sasabihin ng ibang tao dahil hindi sila ang may karapatang magdesisyon sa kung ano ang makakabuti sa buhay mo..IKAW LANG at wala nang iba. Pilipino man or foreigner ang pipiliin mong mapapangasawa go for which ever you think is right for you!!! God bless.
What a crock! You ask any Filo woman if they would marry a westerner and 99.9% of them would say yes. The rest would say no simply because they have a better standard of liviing the Phillipines than most. Just take a look at Hong Kong, Causeway Bay….. EVERY SINGLE maid is filo. Not one isnt. Racism has nothing to do with anything here. But filo women as well as alot of chinese, vietnamese marry westerners not through love or respect but just through pure selfishness, then when they get too comfortable living in their new western lifestyle they decide to up the pace and become extremely demanding. I dont know how anyone can live a deceitful life like this, so fake and mechanical. Every dating website or gaming website has filo, vietnamese, chinese and thai women plastered all over them scouting for the right idiot to give them just what they want.
“question- Why do so many Australian or American men marry Filipino women?”
most of the comments are rubbish and/or racist (exept for “marrying filipina” and “Filipina women insight”). Shame on you people!!!!!! You really sound un-educated and/or un-cultured. What is wrong with looking outside (another national) for a better life, does this ring any bells Austalians/Americans (your ancestors did similar) well unless you are Aboriginal or American Indian!!!! I too am a young Australian single dad looking outside for a chance at a new life with the one that i love and yes she is a Filipino. I too are looking outside for the same reasons. In a nut shell Australian women have and want too much.
You are talking about poor filipino. Try to ask a rich filipina and she would say no to your fat ass. Some of educated filipina would stick their ass to a filipino because foreigners are stinky.
Maybe there are just lots of single women in the Philippines. And lots of lonely western men. Could there be a symbiotic relationship??
it doesnt matter which country you live in , all over the world there are women and men who marry for money not just filipino . maybe im one of the lucky ones as my filipino wife did not need money , when i met her she had her own career and financially stable. we lived together for 3.5 yrs before getting married, i am 53yrs old she is 39yrs old, and our relationship is one of love , actually she earns more than i do, and all house hold duties are shared by us both as we both work. we have joint bank account, we both contribute to any financial goals or major purchases. i think any nation in this world you will always find a minority of gold diggers.
Pinay, Aussie, Gringos, whatever…
People have choices. Whatever food we eat, wherever our feet takes us, whomever we want to marry is no ones business. Plain and simple.
If locals wants to marry foreigners and live overseas, congratulations!
If you choose to be miserable, so be it. As long as we respect each other, then this lonely planet will be all smiles!!!
if you will ask me why i want to marry white people its because their beauty is really adorable and very different from us filipino.. and im looker for a real love which i didnt find from filipino guy.. for me it just doesnt work out. and american can provide my needs..and the mixture of baby is amazing..but if i would be dealing with an american man that is horrible id rather choose to be be with my own race…im not trying to after their money or watever it is..if i can find a good white man i would go for it.aside from having a good look husband i can be provided well and american man is loving…
without their help i can live a better life here in philippines..but im attracted to a white man.i just wanted to be real.its not all about the money… people who thinks about that has small mind. try to put your feet in our shoes so that u would know how it feel.i just wanted to be real…
i believe its all about being with some one who you choose to spend the rest of youer life with…when you get older money is not the center of merrage it would all about the feeling.being inlove and be loved.the care the comapanion..and i believe that white people likes filipina woman its because we are different from other girls in other country we dont just sleep with a guy we didnt know..its dirrty..its a low standard gurl ..the’re putting their degnity very low.they let different kinds of man use them.we are not like that..we dont play for love thats what makes us very different. . .i was shock when i read some of the comments here.. its like their mind are close.and that their heart is full of anger.its very horrible.
I am a filipina who married an american. I don’t think it’s about money. Yes, the Philippines is a poor country. But the truth is life in the Philippines is WAY BETTER than in US. I had a good paying job, I am able to sustain myself, and able to give something to my family. And when I got to US, I had to work twice as hard as I did in the Philippines, my husband had 10 times more bills and debts to pay, he is 10 years older than I am, he is not rich at all. LIFE IN US IS HARD!!! But still I chose to marry him, and I am very happy with my decision, all because I love him and he loves me, and I’ve never felt happier in my life. When I’m with him, I feel complete, and my happiness is serving him, and being his wife and mother to our kids.
i think the reason why filipino women marry western men is because,they find them a real man( who knows how to care for their woman and be responsible for the relationship,a man who looks forward to lovely marriage and future.)that a woman should loved and devoted for the rest of her life.cus sadly these days most of filipino men here just wanted to get the girl’s virginity and just have a good fun.After that they will drop the girl like a broken toy.so its not really about poverty.while with western men they desire filipino women character like being faithful,submissive,caring and loving to their partners.And even to the point of feeding their loved men like a child and preparing their bath and clothes.western men desire to have this kind of caring which i think its distincly filipino women.filipino women are trained from childhood by their mothers to take care very well of their husbands to be.from washingg the clothes to cooking in meeting their husband needs or being a loving wife.So i think western men and filipino women meet at the common point….
I am an American, and my fiancee is Filipina. While are superficial differences may be exotic or appealing to each other, we have been together for 2 years and deeply love each other. A couple of comments are way off base or simply ignorant stereotypes. First, the age difference: we are 8 years apart (not 30!). Second, I am not divorced nor am I a loser nor “ugly” in the eyes of some here. It is called a preference and knowing what I want. Something that comes with maturity and is deeper than anything superficial. Third, she is quite content, has a good job, really doesn’t care to be away from her family but will for our love (not poverty stricken). Fourth, she certainly doesn’t have a problem attracting native men so I am not the only one who thinks she is attractive. In fact, some men have tried to get in her head and fill it with doubts about me! Silly since they are only spewing more stereotypes and have no idea what kind of a man I am. To simply answer, we are getting married because we love each other and have become bestfriends over the course of our relationship. I could not care less about her nationality other than the fact that she is sexy, and I am fond of Filipino culture.
@ “Filipina Women Insight”: No offense, that is some of the worst “insight” I have read. I am 33 years of age, 6 feet tall, slim 165 pounds, educated and stable, could date a woman here if I cared to. My fiancee is 24, petite, adorable, and beautiful, and financially independent. For crying out loud, why do people even give their 2 cents when they can only form speculation out of stereotypes. This is not reasoning.
It is not because of poverty but because of what the person’s decision. When you marry you both decide because your old enough to decide I married a western man which I find him a good man and I fall for him and my sistah too so people who think Filipino woman married western man because of the money… NO! And if you are meant to you are… God knows the best…
Filo tricks…No women of any nationality would marry a man 15+years older for any other reason than $, regardless of race etc…the chance of it happening for real is 1:1,000,000;
A leason Learnt – a nice family Man who had grown children and a divorce met a Filo on the net & introduced her to his life, she moved in within a week, he was 58, she 51.
He ran a Business & was mildly successfull, 4yrs into their relationship he sent her home to the Philipines with $18 thousand to visit her family & elderly parents. She had an Amex card, linked to his (from his business), she was told it was for emergency use only.
Whilst in the Philipines she racked up $46 thousand dollars in one day, the banks were calling the man constantly looking for her. In the end he paid out the $46 thousand or his business partner would charge her with fraud & she would be bankrupted & so would her partner, in addition to this his business partnership was never the same.
The day after the $46 thousand was paid – she did it again $42 thousand!
She would not answer the phone, she would not come back to Australia. It took 3 months to get her back here, & when back here she would not provide any information on what she spent the $ on…The Man stayed with her as he loved her….
3 years later the Man passed away with a heart attack, within a week she had removed every single $ in that Man’s bank account – he was not even able to pay for his Funeral. extremely distressing for his whole family, and how disresectful to this Man, he treated her well, she had everything she needed, a beautiful home, a good Man, clothes everything she could need but this is what happened. I am a Lawyer, this is a true story…this really happened & I’ve seen this happen more than once with Filo’s, sadly…so take care…byer beware.
Some Filipinas marry American men and white men so that they can raise children with long nose,blue eyes and fair complexion….I have so many friends here who have mixed races,like Filipino-American,Filipino-Chinese.They are so gorgeous,I am so jealous ! I want to marry a foreigner like American or Chinese because having mixed races are kinda beautiful !
Lots of Filipina women married to American or other foreign men because lots of men love these kind of women.Men find these women attractive and they like Filipinas because ,these women are “wife material” and values relationship a lot.
“Why do so many Filipino women want to marry American or Australian men?”
Do you really need to ask this question? I think the answer is pretty obvious to anybody who considers this question honestly. Many Filipino women want to marry American/Australian/European men for the same reasons that many women from Mexico/Colombia/Russia want to marry foreign men. Of course you can pretend and make excuses such as ‘love’ or Filipino women are nicer, more affectionate, more loyal than American/ Australian women, but in reality we know that is not true. There are many very beautiful, loving, caring and loyal American and Australian women, so those stereotypes just don’t hold water.
The reason many Filipinos want to marry a foreigner is because it provides them the opportunity to get out of the Philippines and have a better life. The Philippines is a poor developing country, with limited opportunity for people to be upwardly mobile. Why do you think there are so many Filipinos living and working outside the Philippines? Something like ten million Filipinos working as maids, domestic staff and construction workers all over the world. One of the biggest sources of income into the Philippine economy is remittance of money from Filipinos living and working abroad, and yes many of those remittances come from Filipino women who are married to Americans and Aussies.
Seriously if you think that these Filipino women are marrying foreign men purely for love then you are kidding yourself. Consider these points:
1. If Filipino women were only seeking true love then why don’t they just marry a Filipino man? After all there are millions of handsome, intelligent and caring Filipino men in the Philippines. Please don’t say it is because American or Aussie men are better, or more loving etc, because we know that is not true. Americans and Aussies can be unfaithful or abusive just like men anywhere in the world, we are no better or worse. The real reason is that Filipino women know that the Filipino man is never going to earn the money to give her the lifestyle she dreams of.
2. If Filipino women really think that American or Aussie men are more attractive or better husbands then why do you almost never see an upper class rich Filipino girl marry a foreigner? It is almost always the poorer Filipino girls who don’t have the money or the ability to travel who want to marry foreigners.
3. One thing that people often don’t mention is there are a portion of Filipino women who after marrying an American/ Australian and living in the respective country for five years or so and gaining citizenship then divorce their husbands and take half their money and assets. True love? Yeah right!
4. Take a look at the beautiful Filipino girls who are born in the USA or Australia and who have citizenship here. If Filipino women love white guys so much then why do you rarely see a young, hot Filipino/Australian girl with a middle-aged overweight Aussie boyfriend?
Finally one needs to consider the type of American and Australian men who seek to marry a Filipino woman. Here in Australia when you see an Aussie guy with a Filo wife it usually looks like this: A fat 50 or 60 year old bald guy with a Filipino woman who is 20 to 30 years old, slender and attractive. Now if you think the primary motivation of that relationship is true love then you are seriously delusional. Lets face it, most Americans and Aussies who marry Filipinos are guys who struggle to attract women of their own race/nationality. These are guys who are often divorced, middle aged or older, may be single dads, often angry and bitter from past relationships, may be socially inept or have personality issues, are often overweight and not so attractive. Yes it’s true I am guilty of stereotyping here, but ask yourself this: When was the last time you saw a young, athletic, very attractive, professionally qualified and financially successful American or Aussie guy with a great personality who was married to a Filipino mail order bride? I have never seen it and the reason is because guys like that have no trouble finding an equally attractive American or Australian girl to marry.
I don’t think it is a bad thing that many Filipinos marry foreign men, as long as everyone is happy and there is respect in the relationship then it is fine. Each person gets something out of it, for the Filipino women she gets her spousal visa to come to America or Australia, maybe the opportunity to work and study here and to send money to her family back home. For the American/ Australian guy he gets a beautiful wife that he would not have been able to attract in his own country, he gets the sex, affection and companionship that he has been missing, not to mention the home cooked food and clean house.
Of course it is very possible for the couple to love each other and live a very happy life together. But usually love is not the primary reason why Filipino women are marrying these guys in the first place.
Every women has their own reason of marrying a foreigner. Some of the reasons are the ff:
1. Physical attraction – they are attracted to tall people because most man in the Philippines has an average height of 5’5. They also like white foreigners because they look clean.
2. Money – they have perception that foreigners earned dollars which made them think they are richer than average man in the Philippines.
3. Generous – most foreigners do love giving gifts.
4. Opportunity to travel – most people not only Filipino wants to explore new things, meet new people and share different cultures.
Simple and plain truth – money means more to Filipinas then anything else. It is about loose moral character and not just poverty. There are many other poor countries in the world, women would die rather then sell themselves cheap. Filipinas are worst then prostitutes. A prostitute will have sex for money and then the man leaves so his wife and children donot suffer so badly but these Filipinos try to get their hooks and claws into a man so they can suck their money – that way the children are left distraught and the wife is hurt to the soul. Everytime I see a Filipina woman with another Australian or American man I say to myself here is another gold digger to deprive the children of their inheritence. And it is not just Australians or Americans, any man with a wallet can be the victim. I personally know of a Bnagladeshi family hurt and broken because the Filipina woman thought he has dosh – it didnot matter that he has wife and children and if a cunning woman is determine dto seduce a man most of the time she can with disastrous consequences.
AHhh come on people….. me love you loooong tiiime i 20 years old and i go for 80 year old austrlaian man for da money honeeyyyy i fool him loong time….. oh know you know
its because Filipinas are Suckers They just want money from Foreigners. They Think if they marry White guys they will live like a queen….
All i can say that not all filipina women who married to australian or american have same reasons.I notice in the other comments above,they look down the filipina.Don’t judge them.Because not all have same reasons.Like me,i married to an australian and my reason is because i love him so much and age doesnt matter,he is 20 years older than me but i don’t care as long as we live happy.Its our destiny.But as i said not all have same reasons,its because of our feelings,maybe some of them because of poverty,because they want to help their family..And beside it,other reasons also is because when the filipina australian couple have a child ,the child is mix, so she/he so beautiful/ handsome mostly i see.Others also more attractive to the personality of australian or american,or to the attitudes.Others also is discourage to the filipino men.So not all have same reasons.But this all i can say,wherever country,poverty or poor,its doesnt matter,as long as we have a good deeds to our fellowmen/women.In the Philippines,people there are so friendly,they are very good people.Additionally,many foreigners interested to filipina because we are so caring to our husband,loving,supportive and so faithful.So please don’t judge to filipina.
Sorry i forgot to put NOT.All filipina women who married to american or astralian have NOT same reason.They have different reasons.
Australian rather,i forget to put U.
Race was not a big issue for me. I just thought that if i am loved and cared it will be fine… But i met my son’s father and i wasn’t happy coz of the attitude. I would say i better find a man within my country the same culture and atleast Filipino men are caring, sincere, who can understand filipino jealousy and etc.. hehehe
My goodness. I cannot believe on some of the comments I am reading. More so on Hannahzorah’s comment. How can you generalise all Filipina women to be worse than prostitues. How dare you! I arrived in Australia when I was only 9 years old, I am 31 now. My step dad is also Australian and he was more of a father to me than my Filipino father was. I was bought up the ‘aussie’ way; bbq’s, sand and surf, skippy, playschool, vegemite sandwiches, meat pies and sausage rolls. I met my Australian husband at work 11 years ago, and for the stereotype know it all; I am educated and I am a respected Senior Coordinator in the company that I work which I get paid very good money. I pay for all the bills that comes through and my husband pays for our mortgage. We also take turns in paying for our holidays (flights and accomodation), food etc. We got married because we genuinely love eachother, we have two loving sons and we could not ask for more. I think some of the comments that are made here are not thought of properly by the individual who goes off in a nonsensical tangent. Some Filipinas were not as lucky as me, who moved to Australia because her mother found a job in the country, I was able to go to a private Catholic school and attended further college education. I cannot believe how many people are so quick to judge. Look at yourselves first before you start making offensive and ridiculous comments on this page.
If your Australian husband is poor and cannot give you Australian citizenship, would you love him and stay with him just the same?
Filipinas marry white people because they dont want their Kids too look mukhang FOB . There kids will look mestiso/mestisa and become a phil mega movie star !
Its a FOB taktak thing ! Filipinos pray for money at church !
who among you here doesnt need money? its smart to marry a man who can support the woman but why blame filipinas for this? if your old fellows did not court the fili woman, then there will be no marriage…in the first place, its up to a man if he marries a woman or no,,,if he ends up to a cheater, then he is an idiot…and why are you all pointing everything to filipinas? look at your race and look at your fellow bitch out there before saying nasty about filipino women…..for sure, theres a lot of whores in your race,,,,,,take care of your old males so that they wont go out to philippines and look for someone to take care of them…
if you wont a great sex get a filipina if you wont true love get a fuckin dog
