    If it is their second (even third for some) time around you would hope they will be better at it.

    I read through a good part of the aritcle. I am 64 and my g/f is, lets just say a lot younger. She wants children but I am not so sure. It's probably irrelevent because I've had a vasectomy. I have researded and I know that there are some limited options but I really have no desire to have children. Things may change but I will have to cross that bridge when I get to it.

    Rechel, interesting article you posted; it talks about the impact on the wife. I think most of us guys don't give much thought to what other local people think of the wives with a foreign partner. My wife is often subject to stairs and sometimes comments in Visayan when walking with me. I wonder what the local ladies think about my wife. Are they jealous or are they turned off by what they see or are they just curious how we met? Neither my wife or I really care or are bothered by this, we know it goes with the territory.

    I know of three foreigners who are having their first ever child with their Filipina wife.
