There is nothing wrong with interracial marriage. After all we are one nation under God. However the Filipina if truly in love or in legal term marrying in good faith would still not tolerate abuse of any kind. She will run or fight back. In which case the husband might wish she runs instead. As an Australian who married a Filipina says “Don’t expect a docile little wife who will sit around watching her family deteriorate because you’re a bad provider or make bad decisions. If you don’t “wear the trousers”, she will! Someone has to! Respect must be earned and it must be deserved. Don’t think you may act like a tyrant or a Sultan in his palace and get away with it. These are generally strong and very capable women.” (http://www.filipinawives.com.au/page7/myths.html)
This is not to say the Filipina is a disrespectful wife. She probably will not get dragged into screaming bouts out of respect but her silence means more than words. It could mean loss of love. What is there to say when love dies? A woman of a few words, goodbye could be the only one that comes to mind.
If loved, respected and cherished the Filipina wife would stay and support her husband of any nationality for better or worse, a pledge that has been taken lightly by many women around the globe.
