You are correct; I trust my wife but I would rather nobody in her family knows about any insurance that I may have that covers myself.

I think that it would be a rare Filipina that would not tell her family about that.

This statement is more false than any other I've ever read.

I've been all over Philippines, the problem is that they let TOO MANY in their home. It is not odd to see the entire barangay outside your house sharing your television through open windows.

It is very common for Filipinos to walk right up to someone's window and look in.

Which is how westerners get caught unexpectingly by intruders or robbers. Complacency to the common environment is number one way to become a victim.

My wife is still laughing at the statment Filipinos don't let anyone in their home. Maybe in quezon city.... but outside of Cebu and Manila I've seen that the opposite is true; they are naively welcoming.

Im not sure how rare, my wife is a lot more secretive than I am, she always tells me its none of their business what we do or how much we make...she also knows that there is a sizable insurance policy when I die...
I would not marry someone I did not trust completely...guess thats why it took me a while to find the right one....
I do agree, until you find that one, keep all money matters very close to the vest.

Even non family the practice is common to allow others in and around the home. I was always uneasy about looking in someone's window , because an American would NEVER look in a house's window unless they were up to no good.

My wife told me, when she was a kid and they could not afford a tv, it was common to watch through the neighbors window. In our store, we put a small tv so it faces outside and all the kids and some of the adults watch it from the street...
