[quote=“ksidnas”][quote=“Initialj340”][quote=“ksidnas”][quote=“Initialj340”][quote=“ksidnas”]I actually know a few Taiwanese-Japanese, Taiwanese-Korean couple here on the wan. I will ask them why they married Taiwanese guys and not Korean or Japanese.
My guess is love… but it could be something else. Which brings up a nice jingle ala George Costanza’s away message. “What could it be?~~~” instead of “where could I be?”[/quote]
lol, love is kinda like an unreliable source. Must be preference or the people u get to meet = =… or sumthinggg[/quote]
I married a Korean woman cause I could not stand to be in relationships with a Taiwanese woman. (its just me… not them)
Haha, I know, I am in Taiwan now… but I was not 3 years ago. We met and got married 7 years ago. Both of us were students at the time. We didn’t tell our parents until after the fact. I have never questioned her why out of all people she chose me. OH— she thought that I was Thai for the first 6 weeks of our relationship. Taiwan is pronounced, “deh-man” in Korean. Thailand is pronounced, “tai-lan”. So honest mistake. Weird, we both love thai food though.
Conditions… umm being in a foreign country is reason enough to try different things. Freedom. Being young and attractive.
Are those reasons enough. The Korean women I know like to joke how they were mislead into living in Taiwan. They expected Taiwan to be like Singapore or Tokyo, or even Seoul. Instead they get the reality of it all rolling pass bing-lang stalls on their very first drive out of Taoyuen airport.
Some Korean women contemplate divorce a year into living in Taiwan. The inlaws can be a bunch of dicks sometimes, especially the mother in law. I hear the Korean wives complain about their mother in law the most. It may be hard to understand, but its true, your mother can be a real bitch to your wife. My friend’s wife used to go out with her Korean passport in her purse. She was ready to leave if she ever decided to.[/quote]
where were you when u were overseas?
Korean wives complain about tw in laws ?? btw how are the Korean in laws like?
what are the reasons you cant stand tw girls?[/quote]
Location, I met my wife in…-Wait- do you know me IRL?
My in-laws are okay. They complain that I do not know much Korean or is able to hold a drink. I think it is the fact that I am not able to communicate with them without my wife is what saves me on this one. My wife also tells me that her parents also used to complain about me not making enough money during the first 5 years of our marriage.
Though I do like them a lot. I think it is because we don’t live in the same country/city that I get off so easily. Also, not being Korean may have also contributed to the lack of pressure / stress coming from their end.
I think all wives complain about their in-laws. If you are married and have not gotten stuck between the two sides… you are indeed the luckiest person EVER.
Maybe I was young and inexperienced at the time, but I’ve always ended up in bad relationships with Taiwanese women. The Taiwanese women that I’ve dated were always somewhat verbally abusive…sounds weird, but when they go bananas and begin to throw things and scream obscenities… it really reminded me of how my own mother would do the same to my brothers and I when we were kids-- Why you get a B!!! How Can This “B” HEAH! CAN ONLY AAAAAAAAA+++++++++!!!
Funny stereotype, but it is true. It really did happen.
Crap- you’ve unravelled some repressed memory Initialj340. Fudge, its barely 9:30 AM.[/quote]
