Some "souvenir-fathers" pretend to live with their child
If you go to one of the countless resorts in the Philippines you might find many mixed families: the father is a Westerner. The mother Filipina. They have one child. What on the surface looks like a normal couple often proves to be fake. The fathers only come every now and then to see their child, say the mothers. But they pretend to live happily together in their home countries.
