well, i'm a filipina...as far as i know.. age doesn't matter, but money does.. matter to all people.. mybe i'm the only filipina who has different point of view in my life.. co'z i've never intend to marry a guy who is older to be dad.. some filipina's the reason why they are having relationship or even marry 53-60 yrs old americans.. its just beco'z they want to have an easy life or lets say easy way to earn money.. about the situation of the Philippines right now.. about poverty.. many filipina's will do it.. just to see there family are in good state of living.. as far as i know right now, every foreigner thinks all filipina are gold diggers.. just don't generalize it.. co'z not all of us are like that.

Well, just like you, I also believe that in love, age doesn't matter. And I, too, would never marry a man old enough to be my dad. However, I do beg to disagree that every foreigner thinks that all Filipina's are gold diggers. My fiance and soon-to-be husband is an American, and I am Filipina. We are almost of the same ages. If he thought that all Filipinas are gold-diggers, I don't think he would have decided to fly here, that's 7000 miles away from his family, just to share the rest of his life with me. If we don't like other people to generalize their point of view about us, then let's not generalize our point of view about them too.

I have two Philippine neices who married men much older then they are..one Neice named Brenda married her husband and she was 33 years younger then him..and they seem to be the happy couple as my 83 year old nephew has his mother in law live with them in New York and she is just turning 80! also i have another neice that is about the same age and her husband and her are raising her son from a previous man (Filpino)..but they live in LA, California..but I visited both couples and they visit our home...and they have homes in the Philippines too...so they seem to be happy..and I have know them over 20 years..as I have been married to oy Filipina wife for 22 years...Not all the matches are this much difference in ages but the Philippine marriage to the American citizens have a higher rate of success. I only seen one couple in 20 that failed..but nobody is perfect and this match was not a good one..but this is just from my observations as the success or failure depends on the maturity of each of the people involved. Marriage is never easy for anyone no matter what their ages are...

I don't think it matters. You see younger americans marrying older americans. I feel the race is the only thing that makes it an issue when it should not. But personally I would not judge. My grandma was am american who married a filipino. So for me it is just 2 people who got married with a big age difference.

Age doesn't matter. My husband is 8 years younger than me. We have more things in common than I did with my ex-husband who was the same age as me. I think that the only thing that matters is the true reason someone gets together with a person. For me, love & respect is more important. I am filipino and one of my brothers got married to his filipina penpal. She is 20 years younger than he is and treats him like crap even though he put her on a pedestal. Every person is different so I am not talking about all the filipinas because no one is the exact same as another person and we all have good & bad traits. This is just my experience.
