    In the US, it is customary to leave the ancestral home when a child gets married. This is not the case in the Philippines that some parents do not want their married child to leave. For a foreigner this might be a problem but it can be resolved by a compromise. One such compromise is the continuation of financial support to the parents of the wife.

    I don’t think the family of the woman will disagree when the foreigner husband would bring his wife to his country. It is understandable that the woman’s family will also benefit if their daughter would live abroad and much more if she could work there. When my cousin married a German, everyone was glad when they lived in Germany after the wedding. Now my cousin has 2 children and still living in Germany.
