Many Filipinos leave their families in the Philippines to work in a foreign country. Working abroad and being away from their families is a big sacrifice. Because they long for their families and loved ones, they are tempted to get into an illicit relationship. There are also instances in which the marriage fails due to being apart for a longer time.
If you spend most of your time browsing the social media, you will be updated about the video that went viral. The video was a story of an OFW in Taiwan who proposed to another woman in spite of the fact that he has a live-in partner and children in the Philippines.
The video earned more views and comments, but most of the netizens were enraged and posted negative comments.
According to Liza Reyno, the mother of the live-in partner of the OFW, both have families of their own. But, they still choose their own happiness to the extent of leaving their respective families’ way back in the Philippines.
The guy (OFW) and Liza’s daughter were not married, but have two children. She claimed that what her daughter wants is for the guy to fulfill his responsibilities to their children. This is also what Liza is doing to fight for the rights of her grandchildren.
Knowing the story behind, it caused a bad impression on both the OFW and the woman. Considering the fact that the woman knows that the guy has a commitment in the Philippines not only with his live-in partner but especially his children.
The video shows the reality that many OFWs resorted to engaging in a prohibited love affair and eventually commit adultery. This is because they want to satisfy their longing and their need for attention and care. However, as they want to fulfill personal happiness, they forgot that they have family way back home. They were not only running their marriage but also having a complete family.
