Yes, there are perhaps some Filipinas who have this reason but not in most cases!
I was already travelling on my own long before I met Jonathan (well, I’ve met Jonathan while travelling! Jonathan and I are both long-term travellers and us living and settling down in the UK couldn’t be further from our minds.
So it was their choice if you still want to marry despite the condition! We are not rich, but my family lives comfortably, and we were brought up to be independent.
Unless they slipped it in the wedding vows without him noticing, ‘…to have and to hold, to pay Lola’s medical bills…wait, WHAT THE F#%! Meaning, if you want to do something, you work for it, and you shouldn’t depend on anyone else to just give it to you!
If I was looking for a sugar daddy, I must have been blinded by that magic white skin again!
When we decided to pursue our around-the-world backpacking journey together, we both worked hard to build our initial funds! No matter what success we experience, people might still think it’s because the Magic white man got us here.
I funded my South East Asia backpacking trip with my savings then when Jon and I started living together, we always shared our expenses, from food, rent and everything (that’s the British way, in Tagalog “! When I met Jon, he had empty pockets and a 0 broken down motorbike.
So maybe it’s actually foreign men who need the visa, not the Filipinas!
We Filipinas can also travel to any country in the world with our Philippines passport so why would we need them if we can already get things on our own!?
We’ve had complete independence since 1946 people, get the grip!
Western countries have the range of incomes and living standards just like we do.I’m not lucky cuz I’m with a white man – we are BOTH lucky to have each other cuz we deserve the best!

This is also for all the Filipinas who are being judged for dating a Foreigner instead of our Filipino men!
