Gray Matter


You’re Either a Filipino or Married to One if…

Filipino Not only have I spent many years living around Filipinos, I’m an American man married to a Filipino woman. I’ve adapted some of her traits.

It comes with the territory and from getting involved with her side of the family as well as her family friends. I recently stumbled upon a list of “truth-isms”, written by someone at and posted on an obscure Facebook page. As usual, I don’t know how I found that Facebook page since I wasn’t looking for anything on it.

I’ve commented on the “facts” the best I could, immediately below them. My comments are italicized.

You know you’re a Filipino if…

I’m not Filipino, but I’ve been told I’m “Filipino-ized” (as opposed to a Filipino who is Americanized). Here are the “facts” I can comment on:

You could be married to a Filipina if…

I’ve been married to a Filipino (Filipina) for more than 35 years. I don’t think being “married” is necessary in this context. Just living with a Filipino for a while will have an effect on you.
