K1 - Older Filipino man?

13 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

A woman being engaged to a man 12 years her senior would hardly raise eyebrows in USEM.  Or most anywhere in the Philippines, actually.  I doubt folks from the Philippines would consider an age gap like that to be remarkable enough to mention on VJ.  Unless we're trying to figure out who holds the age gap record for VJ Philippines :D

I don't know anyone from the Philippines who has done a visa. I just noticed the other day that it's always a younger woman beneficiary being petitioned for by an older US man. I knownit's cultural, but surely we would hear of some cases once in a while?

Or maybe no young US women petition older Filipino men.

I don't think it cultural. I know many guys in the Philippines and they have wives about the same age as them for the most part.  

 

Now the married guys seem to have very young girlfriends, it only the foreigners who tend to have young female partners 


Just when you think you have TDS eradicate,  a new case shows up.
