Filipino Women Take Husbands to the Laundry in the US

Josh, a 59 years old American, a well-off businessperson, had been divorced from his wife three years ago. The divorce was a painful one. Although his wife got one-half percent of his material assets, he was still a wealthy man according to the American level of wealth. Six months had passed since Josh divorced his wife, Joanna. Now, he is making plans to go back to the dating game, hoping to get a decent wife with whom to share the rest of life.

Josh signed up for three online dating sites. He looked up at around 200 young women from Asian countries: China, Malaysia, South Korea, and the Philippines. On his list of 200 women, he selected 90 profiles with names, telephone numbers, and email addresses. Within a month and a half into his online communication with these women, he reduced the list to just seven potential candidates who seemed to get further into their relationship. Three of them were Thais and four Filipino women. He resolved to keep three Filipino pen pals only for serious consideration.

He arranged to visit them in the Philippines. His Filipino pen pals live on the outskirts of Manila, the capital city, his schedule to meet them was an easy one. Josh had planned to spend 15 days on the island. He first met Marcia, age 20, at his hotel in Manila. After about forty minutes, they were off to lunch. The next day, he met his second pen pal, Paulina, 22, in a nearby restaurant. The following day, he invited Andria, 25, to his hotel where they chatted for one hour, after which they had lunch together.

Among these three young women, Josh concluded that Andria was to be his next wife because of the spark of chemistry, the manner in which she expressed herself, and her knowledge of the Western culture. He then arranged to meet her parents who live in Bohol, a provincial town in the Philippines.

From Manila, they traveled by plane to Bohol where they spent two nights and three days. Andria introduced Josh to her parents who were eager to meet the Westerner who set his eyes on their daughter. She spent the night at her parents' home while Josh stayed at a nearby hotel.

On the Second night, they threw an engagement party with the entire family attending. A year later, Andria joined Josh in the United States where they got married within a month from her arrival. What Josh did not know what that her wife had a secret agenda.

She had relevant information from one of her friends in the US who married an American. Right after she got her residency document in order, divorced him on the basis of physical and mental abuses. She ended up getting one-half of what her husband owned, such as several cars, businesses, several rental houses, private houses, boats, and bank accounts.

After receiving her green card from the US Immigration Bureau, she had changed her behavior from being a sweet and caring wife to one who did not care She stopped attending to her husband's needs as before. She refused to cooperate with him. He became frustrated and angry at what seemed a hellish situation. One day, as they were quarrelling, Andria got close to her husband and hit him either intentionally or by mistake.

A fight ensued. She knocked her head against the edge of the dining room table, her face hit the glass coffee table, which splattered blood all over the living room, and she lost two of her front teeth. Within three days from the family brouhaha, she contacted her lawyer. She divorced her husband on the ground of physical abuse. Just like her friend, she ended up taking her husband to the laundry with the help of her perceptive lawyer.

Josh did not see any trouble coming until it was too late. Unfortunately, that there are a few Filipino women who deviate from the Filipino norms: marriage is a lifetime commitment, stay with your spouse through good and bad days, and be supportive to him always.

Although it is true that a few Filipino women engage in such an evil practice, but this does not mean that most or all Filipino women belong to this category. Most Filipino women marry their foreign national husbands because they love them for who they are and not for their material possessions.
