Too close for comfort really

I highly suspect there are reasons why the divorce rate among white men and certain Asian women (Japanese, Korean, Filipino, Chinese) is high. Not all of them divorce but I suspect it’s down to factors like disappointment (especially when expecting her to be submissive but she’s turning out to be violent, independent and ill-tempered) and in the case with Korean and Filipina women (thought not all of them), too close for comfort.

When I mean by that, both South Korea and Philippines are Westernised and specifically Americanised. Also both of them have substantial Christian populations in East Asia which again proves my point that in being Westernised, they get too close for comfort. Especially when many turn out to act more like their dreaded white (female) counterparts that it’s unsurprising these divorces take place.

Not all of them divorce their white husbands but I think disappointment plays a big part. It’s like expecting them to be exotic orientalist pin-ups but when such divorces happen one wonders if they’re actually no different from white women and in the case with Korean and Filipina women, so Westernised as to be too close for comfort.
