I dated with a Taiwanese guy who has a very complicated family background. Just curious what Taiwanese think about this.
His father is 90 something years old and has three wives. Exactly speaking, one legal wife and two mistresses. The legal wife couldn’t get pregnant, so they adopted 10 children. But his father wanted his own blood at the age of 60, and got two sons and two daughters from two mistress.
His father lives with his wife, son, daugher-in-law and grandson. Each mistress has her own house and his father stays 2 nights at each house. I was shocked to see the first mistress when I visited his father with my bf. She was bathing his father. (his father is very old, as I told above) Husband, wife, mistress, son from another mistress) were in the same roof…
Somebody may say love is the most important thing. But most of older people say around me (I’m Korean, for better understanding) we should consider family background when decide marriage. I’m worried that he would think extramarital affairs are nothing, considering the old saying, “like father, like son.” In my culture, people think this kidn of family a shame.
If there’s someone who has idea about Taiwanese families or about Taiwanese point or view on this case, please give me some advice.
