10 Tips for Dealing with an Under-the-Saya Partner

Are you in love with an overly submissive man? Curb your frustrations by helping him get his mojo back with these tips. By Charlene J. Owen

It has been long ingrained in our social awareness that our image of the Filipino man is guwapo, macho, and swabe. Whether he has the charm of a boy-next-door or the appeal of an action star, one thing remains constant: that he must be your protector and provider in every aspect of your relationship.

More and more, we see her embodied in the women around us–students, career women, and mothers who are always on top of everything they do.
