It comes with the territory and from getting involved with her side of the family as well as her family friends. I recently stumbled upon a list of “truthisms”, written by someone at and posted on an obscure Facebook page. As usual, I don’t know how I found that Facebook page since I wasn’t looking for anything on it.

I’ve commented on the “facts” the best I could, immediately below them. My comments are italicized.

I’ve been married to a Filipino (Filipina) for nearly 30 years (January 2015 is the 30-year mark). I don’t think “married” is necessary. Just living with a Filipino for a while will have an effect on you.
