Early in our marriage, my husband got a job abroad and I came along to set up a home for him in the Middle East. He’s a very handsome guy and I’m very much in love with him. I never worried or had reason to be jealous of him in that place. The country we lived in was very strict about the separation of men and women.
After 18 months of research, 48 drafts of the libretto, and three years of intense creative collaboration, composer Ed Gatchalian of 4th Wall Theatre Company may finally be on the first step to achieving a lifelong dream of staging a musical on Broadway.
I am a nurse, and about to leave for a job abroad. But I am having second thoughts—should I or shouldn’t I? I am 25 years old, married, with a three-month-old baby. I also have a 10-year-old daughter from a previous relationship.
I have just seen your articles in the newspaper about OFWs having affairs. I am a New Zealand man, 64 years old, who spent nearly four years in an immigration office struggling to bring to my country a Filipino lady. Three times, I visited your beautiful country and met many wonderful people who I came to admire. Finally, I was able to get permission for my lady, aged 48, to come here.
I’m 42 and retired from being an overseas Filipino worker last year. I am financially stable now, thanks to some business and investments I’ve made. I have more or less achieved most of my dreams, except one. I don’t have a child of my own. At 30 and two years into my marriage, we found out that my wife would not be able to bear a child. We ended up adopting a boy who is now 15.
I’m a 25-year-old-Filipino woman, now an Australian citizen, working as physical therapist in one of the hospitals here. I’m presently seeing a quiet, attractive, single guy who is 41. I find him a lot older than me, though he could pass for 35 because of his quiet lifestyle.
I am an OFW and about to turn 35 with no boyfriend. The pressure to get married from family and friends is intense. Eight months ago, I met a 31-year-old guy online and have been chatting with him almost every night. We’ve “talked” about everything you can think of, including marriage, the type of wedding we like, etc. I have fallen in love with him and my friends actually think we are in a relationship already. He is fond of sending me links of songs that I am hopefully reading as romantic lyrics he is singing from his heart to mine.
