    Sometimes I have trouble posting if the internet is extremely slow.

    I was living in Luzon until my Canadian friend's house was sold. Nice house on the beach, but far from nearest town (Candon City) and no available females so I went online, and asked for girls from Dumaguete area. Tons of replies, and I found one from a nice (religious) family. She was 20 years younger than me. Unfortunately (for her) she was missing an eye, and her family told her she would never get a man.
    We have have been married now for almost 7 years and there has never been a problem. Love her and her family!

    Sometimes it does work. My neighbor came to the Phils in his early thirties and on his first day in Dgte, straight off the boat, he asked his pedicab driver where he could find a good wife. Pedicab driver dropped him off at his house and introduced him to his niece. They dated for two weeks, but there was just no spark. Driver introduced him to his other niece. She was 19, and poor as. Wasn’t educated. She was selling fish by the roadside. They dated, and now they’ve been married for 39 years, and have three grown kids who are just lovely. And they are still going strong. You don’t have to get an educated woman. You just need to find a loyal one who will stay with you through the bad days.

    God protect me from educated women. Had enough in the old Western world. Educated brains, means endless discussions. Here; an educated heart, but nothing to discuss - from her side :-)

    You are right and wrong. Educated western woman can drive you nuts with their endless and often nagging discussions. Now don't think from a uneductated Filipina there are no inputs in a discussion. These can you drive nuts to the same extent. Because they never learnt to debate and their arguments are often so ilogical that I nowadays rather walk away. Before things are gettng out of control. Has worked fine so far.

    yes, 100% if it's about these wannabe intellectual, pseudo-emancipated western women. As long as I am in the Philippines, I am 100% a Philogynist :-)
    you are right and wrong. often, I feel same like you, but sometimes women here just have a different point of view, from their cultural side, from the way they are socialized, and sometimes they are simply right when it's about life here in this country - in many ways they know and understand more than we do. Instead of debating without any result I learned to listen to my asawa, and this is easier here in the Philippines than in Thailand, where rather noone is speaking english - just to come back to the topic of this thread a bit.
