Dating a vietnamese man advice christian dating help
Instead of writing from my own point of view, I decided to interview my Vietnamese girl about topics such as family, culture, religion, dating foreigners, marriage, divorces, etc…Without further ado, let’s lift the mysterious veil of the Vietnamese girl. My mother could not afford milk when I was a baby, so she fed me water she boiled the rice with.I was so happy and excited, such a memorable moment.For entertainment, the average Vietnamese family only had a simple black and white TV that mostly showed Chinese and Korean movies. And the only way to listen to music was on the radio. But I feel lucky because my childhood wasn’t heavily influenced by technology like today. In the 90s, you did not see many Westerners in Saigon.While this is fine, those are not what I would call typical Vietnamese girls.She likely is somewhat Westernized and her parents are probably less traditional.
But after the year 2000, things started to improve. More people could afford motorbikes and other luxury items.Phuong: There is a joke in Vietnam where a couple goes to a restaurant, and if the girl pays the bill, they are married. It may be a joke, but it’s not that far from the truth! I guess that’s the case for 70% – 80% of married couples. Andy: How involved is the wife’s mother in her daughter’s family, such as taking care of the kids, etc…?I think the usual reason is the wife does not trust the husband with money! But it caused so many problems between my parents, so I don’t really support this. Phuong: It used to be the wife who did all the household work. Phuong: Today, I don’t think the wife’s parents will interfere much in their daughter’s family affairs.But, in Vietnam, people are very afraid of divorce. Money is usually the number one issue in the West too. Does the government give any kind of financial support to single moms?If it happens, they usually work hard to save the marriage and try to get their partner back. Andy: What is the number one issue in the family (money, cheating, lack of intimacy, etc…) Phuong: It’s money! But do you think many Vietnamese couples can have a healthy sex life even after being married for many years? Some of the traditional girls believe the man has to do all the work in the bedroom. Also, Vietnamese people generally don’t take care of their bodies after they get married, so their partner may get turned off. Andy: Are single mothers viewed negatively in Vietnam? Phuong: On the countryside, divorce and single moms are viewed negatively.
