I actually had this topic for discussion languishing in the old “to do” folder for a while. Putri Cinta’s dating advice post spurred me to put it up.
I saw this topic on Facebook. It was a question as to why Asian women seem to covet western husbands. Really, I think it was just an ad for a dating site but the premise was interesting.
The article was largely filled with generalities but there were some truths in there as well. Often, life in the west is a step up for some Asian women, particularly those who come from poorer families with fewer opportunities. Life in the west is thought to be easier and more prosperous and often that’s probably the case.
I have heard, at least in my own experiences, that many Asian women believe western men will treat them better. There are some women who just want the green card and there are some men who want little more than a domestic slave, but I think the former and latter are in the minority. It’s also said that Asian wives are supposed to be meek and obeying—again, from my own experience, HAH!
Does anyone have any thoughts on the matter? The floor is open.
By the way, the girl in this post is just the one they was featured in the ad.
