Korean men dating advice
I have much respect for women who marry for convenience, and yet turn out to have a more successful life and unselfishly dedicate their time to becoming good wives and responsible mothers.
These women DO exist, but are overshadowed by In my husband’s household, my father-in-law is the most powerful member of the family.
My parents-in-law may be strict and closed-minded, but they are not that bad. Whenever I feel like they are being unfair, I think about their goodness, so I don’t develop a negative feeling towards them. She told me that defiance will lead to more misunderstandings, so as long as I am under my parents-in-law’s roof, I should learn how to live by their rules.
If the parents don’t approve of the person their child is planning to marry, it is more likely that the wedding will not take place.
Although parental blessing before marriage is also very important in my country, Filipino parents don’t have much control over who their child chooses to spend the rest of his life with, especially when the one asking for the parents’ blessing is of marriageable age. When I told my family that I was going to marry a Korean, they were reluctant.
I realized, after crying a river countless times, that there is really nothing I can do. After all, I’ve seen and heard worse from other foreigners married to Koreans.
Also, I try not to bombard my husband with complaints about his parents, because we end up arguing.
