In an Australian Filipina relationship? Where should you live? Australia or Philippines?
Yes, the question comes up, especially if you're not locked into having to stat somewhere. Should you be looking at bringing your Filipina wife, fiancee, girlfriend or de facto partner to live with you there in Australia, or would you fancy relocating to the Philippines and living your lives together there? You probably fell in love with the Philippines on visits there, and really enjoyed the kind Filipino people with their smiling faces, not to mention how cheap everything is. The thought of a relaxed and easy-going tropical life without the pressures of live in Australia is fairly appealing.
But are there some downsides? Earning a living in the Philippines. Will the superannuation payments or pension stretch far enough? What about exchange rate fluctuations? What about declining health as you get older? Will you get the care you need? And will you truly be made welcome, or will you always be the foreigner? And what of all the scams and scammers?
