I think you are right on. After being "colonized" for 300 years by Spain, I don't know how they couldn't be Spanish (Mountain province has some exceptions as they were never truly concurred by Spain). They are mixed and like to mix races as much as possible because they think that their facial and bodily characteristic are very flawed. My is from the Quezan Province, has a 1/2 black (balkalou) kid and we have one half white together. Their family structure is very, very interdependent upon their children's successes. After they marry off their child, they assume roles as dependents to the new husband and it is nearly impossible to stop them from finding creative ways to separate you, your wife, and your children (their grandchildren) from any form of financial gain! Unlike the customs in the United States, grandparents will take the food right out of their own grandchild's mouth to somehow gain whatever they believe they lot while being poor in the RP. If you don't marry a Filipina that is richer than you, be prepared to have nearly constant live in relatives that WILL NOT CONTRIBUTE FINANCIALLY, and YOU are "rich," so guess who gets to PONY UP!? hint: It's not your new Pinoy family that will give or contribute to finances! Even if they make good money they feel that you owe it to them somehow!! Good luck!!
