Usually this means the man joined a dating website (like Christian Filipina–the one I recommend), met a pretty Filipina, and started communicating via email and chat.
The next challenge is enduring the process of getting her spousal/fiancee visa so she can move to your country and (eventually) become a citizen there.
The process is doable but it does require a lot of patience on your part.
The government agencies involved get your tax dollars regardless of their inefficiencies and can be frustrating to deal with.
All marriages require work, and mine is no exception.
Marrying a woman from the Philippines, in fact, will come with some unique challenges that you wouldn’t face if you just dated someone from your own country.
Here are a few that come to mind: This isn’t always a big factor for those of us who have spent time in the Philippines and dated while living/visiting there.But most Filipino-American couples first meet online.I am extremely happy with the life that my Filipina wife and I have together.I can’t imagine being with anyone else or being married to someone of my own race/culture.Our love is a beautiful thing that has enhanced my life in ways I could never fully describe.But I never want to present being married to a Pinay as some kind of panacea or fairy tale.
