Not every woman is willing to date a man they won’t be seeing in person for months or years at a time. Doing that will require them to be extraordinarily patient, trusting, and committed.

For most Filipinas though, a long-distance relationship doesn’t pose a problem.

Filipinas grow up believing women should stay loyal to their partners no matter what, even if it is to their disadvantage. But their values are strong enough to keep them faithful despite the lack of reciprocity.

Here are more reasons why distance won’t deter a Filipina woman’s faith in her partner.

They grew up with Christian values.

Being disloyal to their partners goes against the teaching of the church. As devoted Catholics, their conscience will forever haunt them should they try to seek affection with men other than you. They would not risk being scrutinized by their religious parents and grandparents.

Once they promise to stay with you forever, they will. Some women will even stay in their marriage even when the love is gone because they respect the church so much. They will find other reasons to stay — may it be your children or your fond, young love memories.

Divorce is still illegal in the Philippines.

Despite efforts to legalize divorce in the country, apparently, many Filipinos are still not open to the idea. So aside from respecting the sanctity of marriage, Filipinos know that cheating will only do them more bad than good.

Should they cheat, they will forever suffer their husband’s wrath as they can’t legally get away from their union. Staying loyal just makes things much easier.

This is also why modern courtship in the Philippines takes so long to conclude. They don’t just give you their sweet “yes.” They have to be sure first that you’re someone they truly love because your marriage will literally be forever.

Their end goal is to settle down.

Again, Filipinas don’t date for fun. When they commit to someone, they leave behind everything that would threaten your relationship. They will stop partying at night and talking to other guys.

Filipinas only commit to men who have prospects of marrying them. Why else would they waste their time with men who have no plans of settling down? Even if these Filipinas came from highly urbanized cities like Cebu or Manila, if they feel that your values align, they will give up their liberal lifestyle.

Trust these women that though you’re miles apart, they will stay loyal. They will patiently wait for the day you meet again in person and hopefully pop the question.

A Filipina Woman’s Loyalty

Distance in relationships is the nemesis of many women. But not for Filipinas.

They’re raised to become good wives and in the process, they must become faithful to their partners. With parents who value loyalty and family ties, they receive firsthand the glories that go with being loyal. They know that nothing good comes out of two-timing or being unfaithful.

If they want to have the same lasting marriage as their parents, they must master the art of staying faithful to their partner no matter the circumstance and distance.
