Two men can show up at a party as being openly Gay, living together as spouses and these days nobody dares speak a word against it. slanders are uttered, accusations and judgments are made. People look at a younger woman and assume the ONLY reason she would ever marry him is because he is wealthy. She should be out there, in the world, making her own fortune and not relying on a man who has established some security he’s willing to share with her in marriage.But that’s all assuming that ‘equality’ has anything to do with non-dependence. In a same-age relationship, if the husband works and the wife doesn’t..
But there’s another unspoken side effect to this individualistic, self-sufficient mantra and it echoes something like this when they are older, “.” The only part of American culture I’ve witnessed that contradicts this mentality is found among conservative religions such as Christianity, Mormonism, Jehovah’s Witness, Seventh-Day Adventist and similar Bible based religions which still hold up the values of the Wife who is both a Help Mate to her Husband, yet submissive to his authority and leadership.
These days the Wife is practically spit upon by contemporary culture.
It is not a rare occurrence here to see older men happily married with much younger women.
Now, people are people and you’ll find some unhappy couples if you look around enough.
And if I go to the larger malls in Cebu, I see it several times a day all through the day.
