Foreigners searching for Filipina brides need to  know that the process of marrying a Filipina\ is not at all a bed of roses. Indeed, there are many barriers, many challenges to be encountered along the way, and one has to be really serious to go through all these and pursue his one true goal of marrying a Filipina woman.

Just exactly what lies ahead?

If you don’t have friends who can introduce you to their Filipino friends, take advantage of technology, and start your search with Filipino dating sites online.  There are tons of such out there which feature thousands of profiles of Filipina women.  Then again, poring over these profiles can eat much of your time, can it  not? So what’s a guy got to do (or not to do?)  

First of all, make sure you land on a credible Filipino dating site. This you can do by making a simple search on the internet, and joining forums and getting the opinions of other members. If you believe you have found the right site,  do as the site requires – post your most recent and decent photo and build your  profile. There are sites that automatically does a profile match to shortcut the choosing process, so it is important  to be honest when describing yourself, and of saying what you are exactly looking for in a girl.

When you think you have found the right girl, get to know her properly.  Pursue her online and offline. Spend hours talking to her and make time to get to know her close friends and family. Keep in mind that Filipino women are family-oriented. They value their family, and we are not talking about just the immediate family here, mind you. If you want to marry a Filipina, be prepared to accept the possibility of dealing with her entire clan as well.

Make an effort to visit the Philippines and meet her personally and her family. If you are serious in asking for her hand in marriage, do it the Filipino way. It can be costly to fly to the Philippines to do this, but that is one way the girl’s family can be sure your intentions are sincere.

It is safe to assure that you will be taking your Filipina girl with you, but how soon can you do that? If you plan to have your wedding here in the Philippines, you will not be able to bring the girl with you back to the United States till after about a year or so, and you will need to accomplish the necessary paper works before that can happen. A faster way to get your girl to the US with you is to get her a fiance VISA then get married within 3 months in your homeland.

Regardless, you will have to plan for your actual wedding, and for any Filipina woman, that is always the most fun and exciting part. A lavish wedding is not necessary, but your girl and her family will surely want to be wed before a priest (since most Filipinos are Catholics) or a minister as the case may be. If you’re going to have your wedding in the Philippines, be prepared to find a lot of people in your guest list and the reception! Be prepared to serve lots of food, too! There has to be plenty for everyone to eat.

It’s not a “piece of cake”, isn’t it? But the rewards of marrying a Filipina are great, as you must have heard from countless of white guys who decided to marry a Filipina. That’s because the nature of the Filipina woman being strong, loyal, faithful, dedicated, and loving, makes her a good wife and a good mother to your children.

Do Filipino Girls Get Jealous Too Easily?

Jealousy is an  emotion that can be defined in various ways,  but in a relationship, jealousy is a sign of feeling insecure or fear of losing someone you love deeply to a third party. Now, there are different reasons why a girl would nurse such feelings, but surely, these reasons would not have anything to do with being a Filipina (or not).

But what does necessitate the question, in the first place? Why would it matter for anyone, presumably a foreigner, if a Filipino girl gets jealous too easily or not? It could be that the foreigner does not want a jealous girlfriend or it could also be that the foreigner wants to have his girl’s full attention and he is wondering how hard it would be to make her feel jealous so he could have his love and affection. This is something called “reverse psychology” which can work to one’s benefit or against.

At a certain level, jealousy can be healthy and even necessary for a relationship to survive, but too much jealousy can ruin a relationship, and so knowing what makes a Filipina girl jealous can help you get out of a sticky situation. So what would make a Filipina girl jealous?

1) Not spending quality time with her. No girl in a relationship would want to be left all by herself for long. Indeed, what’s the point of being in a relationship when you can’t be together most of the time, right? It’s pretty normal for any girl to be jealous when a guy prefers to do something else with his friends (or with another girl in particular) to being with her, more so if that’s not the case when the relationship started.

2) Not remembering important occasions. Filipino girls are not after material things, but it gives them joy if the love of their life are able to surprise them with “little” gifts on their birthdays, anniversaries, or other important events.

3) Not keeping your word. If you say something, mean it. Not doing something you promised to do will spark some negative feelings. If you have made plans to go out, see a movie, take a leisure walk, go to the mall or something, don’t break your plans at the last minute.

4) Looking at another girl when you’re with her. Indeed, what girl would like it when you shift your attention to another girl while you’re together? That gives the impression that you are not interested in her.

5) Entertaining calls and text messages while being with her. Unless it is an emergency, taking calls or sending or receiving text messages are absolute no-nos when you are out on a date with a girl you’re serious with.

But of course, there are limits to all these. You must not let the girl control your life, either. Even though you are in a relationship, and really, it does not matter if you’re with a Filipina or a Western girl, or some other Asian woman, you must not lose your own personality. While you may want to give your girlfriend your undivided attention, keep in mind that doing so will not work all the time. Eventually, you will want to have some “me” time, too, and so will your girlfriend. In your utmost desire to please her and not to make her feel jealous in any way, you may end up forgetting your own self, and that is not good either. The thing is, you must know how to balance yourself so will still become whole and not broken, in love and not fall out of love.

So do Filipino girls get jealous easily? So what if they do, right? You now know how to tame her heart with these tips!

Why Americans And Other Foreigners Love To Marry Filipinas As Their Wife And Partner?

Indeed, what is it with Filipinas that Americans and other foreigners love to make them their partners for life?

Besides possessing attractive physical features (brown skin, silky black hair, lovely chinita eyes, curvaceous and rounder figure), Filipina women are said to make good wives.

The reasons could be as follows:

1) Filipina women are religious. The Philippines is largely a Catholic nation and most Filipinos, especially the women, make time to attend church service on Sunday and on holy days of obligation, and pray the Rosary every day. Being religious, Filipino women value the teachings of the church especially when it comes to love, marriage, and relationship. Being religious, Filipino women are forgiving, and will do everything to keep their marriage, even if they have been bruised and hurt many times already. But of course, this should not be a reason for foreigners to abuse their Filipino wives because a woman can only take so much. While indeed they are forgiving, they are not stupid. And this brings us to the second reason why Americans and other foreigners love to marry Filipinas.

2) Filipina women are smart. Most Filipinas are educated and smart. They can manage a home as well as the family’s finances. What more can a guy ask for, right? Moreover, and this brings us to the third reason why Americans love to marry a Filipino women …

3) Her family is a Filipino woman’s priority. This is another good reason why Americans and other foreigners love to marry Filipinas as their wife and partner. A Filipina wife will do everything in her power for her family. Even if she is a career person herself, she will make time in order to facilitate the needs of her family first before her own needs. Before she leaves for work, she will make sure that there’s food on the table for her kids, and that her husband’s clothes are readied. Essentially, a Filipina woman’s motto is family first before self.

4) Filipino women are good communicators. Having been under American rule for a time, the ability to speak and understand English is one thing that sets Filipino women from their Asian counterparts, like the Thais, for instance. Filipino women are among the best communicators out there, so the language barrier is not one of those you will have to worry about greatly. More importantly, they understand the language of the heart.

5) Cultural differences. Cultural differences can be a barrier to any relationship, but they can make any relationship interesting as well. As far as culture is concerned, the Philippines and America are like day and night. For example, in America, people leave their homes to live independently when they turn 18. You don’t often see the same situation in the Philippines. In many Filipino homes, you will see several generations living under the same roof. In America, most people live together even if they are not yet married; in the Philippines, many still consider pre-marital sex and living together a taboo. In America, time is gold; in the Philippines, there is something that’s called “Filipino Time”, which means things don’t always start on time! It will take time and many challenges to fuse these cultural differences to benefit both parties, but for Americans and foreigners determined to marry Filipinas, this can be a pretty exciting period in their lives.

6) Filipino women are sweet and loving. Most Filipino women are malambing (soft spoken) and reserved, complementing the Western guy’s rather loud ways. Filipina women are also loving beings and this they show in a variety of ways that foreigners love.

Physically, white guys and Filipino women make an interesting pair. Where the former is white, the latter is morena (brown-skinned); and while the white guy is more than six feet tall, the Filipino woman is only 5 feet and 2 inches on the average. But these differences do not stop white guys from pursuing a relationship with a Filipino women. After all there are plenty of other reasons why Americans and other foreigners love to marry Filipinas as their wife and partner that go beyond skin deep.

What is the Process to Marry a Girl From the Philippines and Bring Her to the United States?

We’ve heard it said all too often, “A Filipina’s worth everything!” Indeed, many foreign men will go through all the trouble to marry a Filipina. But really, it can’t all be that troublesome with the availability of tools and information online. Following are some guides should you decide to make the next move following a successful courtship and marriage proposal:

First, and foremost, you need to present proof that you have legal capacity to contract marriage, presuming of course that the girl you want to marry is beyond 24 already, otherwise the first thing that needs to be done is to get parental consent (if the girl is between 18-21 years old) or parental advice (if the girl is between 22-24 years old). Granting that is not the case or has already been taken cared of, make an appointment with the US embassy in Manila or Consular Agency in Cebu  to execute an Affidavit in Lieu of Certificate of Legal Capacity to Contract Marriage. You will be asked to present the printout of the confirmation of your appointment, as well as your passport, documents proving that you are free to marry and other relevant documents, so make sure you have these ready when you visit either office. Payment of the filing fee may be done in cash or through credit card.

Having hurdled that, you can now apply for a marriage license at the Office of the Civil Registrar in the municipality or city where you or your fiancee is residing, bringing with you the Affidavit in Lieu of Certificate of Legal Capacity to Contract Marriage, your US passport, documents showing you are single or free to marry.

With a Philippine marriage license, you can get married to your Filipina fiancee before a judge, mayor, or anyone who is authorized by the Philippine government to administer the ceremony.

It has to be understood that your marriage to a Filipina does not grant her eligibility to enter the United States. It is necessary that you, a US citizen, file a Petition for Immigrant Visa (also known as I-130) with the local USCIS (that’s U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services). The process can take up to two years, however, and that means you will not be able to take your wife to the United States till then.

A shorter route to get your wife to the United States when you have already filed the I-130 Visa is to get her  the K3 Visa (otherwise known as the Non-immigrant Visa for Spouse). This normally takes around eight months to a year to process. Of course, it is understood that you are qualified to file the petition in this case. Needless to say, you need to present proofs of your US citizenship and your wife’s FIlipino citizenship, valid IDs issued by the government, your marriage license, and some photos of you as a couple.

Once your wife receives her K3 Visa, she may now enter the “Land of the Free” where she can move to change her non-immigrant status to immigrant.

If one year still sounds like a long time, you may want to consider getting a Fiancee Visa (I-129F), which can be done in just about six months or even less. The Fiancee Visa a non-immigrant type of visa that will allow you to take your fiancee to the United States and get married there. The Fiancee Visa is conditional, however. It requires that marriage must take place within 90 days from arrival to the US.

But as they say, “it’s more fun in the Philippines”, and that includes getting married. Indeed, for many Filipina women (and foreign men), there’s nothing like getting married in the Philippines, where not just the whole family, but the entire barangay, can witness the proceedings. Getting married in the Philippines is an experience you really wouldn’t want to miss. From the preparation right to the reception, are funny and memorable moments you are sure to cherish for the rest of your life.

Time flies, anyway, so one year or two years of waiting may only seem like a long time, but really it’s not. Besides, there’s the internet to keep you connected until you can be together physically in the United States.
