Basically we had a good marriage for 5 years (with some extreme downs) until she decided to execute her long term plan and piss off without notice, and proceeded to send the lawyers onto me. Two years further, almost total distruction while she got next to nothing but the winners were the lawyers.
My experience could have been avoided of I was more aware of a few things.
No need for private investigators. Do a course in recognising a person for what he/she is, by his/her attributes and you'll weed out most evil ones before you even start. Even then, no guarantees.
Guys who have a good marriage of long-standing with a Pinay are lucky. Some also tell bullcrap.
@ Spruik, Private investigator, can make someone save a lots of money and troubles.....when i say PI it is only one option not the only one.. Suppose the filipina has a bf or even a husband and you have doubts about that, you are better to have a PI than going there by yourself and risk your life for nothing.
Suppose the PI say to you, sir, your gf she is married...so it cost just that....and that can save his life or even going in jail....PHILIPINNES rules are not like ours, over there even if the woman is separated for many years and if the ex-husband ever see her with a foregners he can try to get money from him or even make a complain about his wife and the foreigner will go directly go in jail and don't expect your ambasador to help you....You can find stories on internet...
If you ever have any doubts, if you are really not sure about something concerning your gf, why should you go there and risk your life....beleive me PHILIPPINES is not a play ground.
