I started my other blog with the goal of posting about life as a married immigrant in Korea. However, I couldn’t really update it as much as I wanted to although I’ve thought of so many topics to post. There is a section for the “married immigrant” or people like us who’ve chosen to marry and live in Korea.
I once posted before that when I first came here, it was quite difficult for me to find information about living here as a married woman. “Altair”, whom I met on Pinoyexchange almost seven years ago before I even got married, was my source of information about Korean life. My husband is a good source too, but then he’d mostly focus on the culture and traditions rather than practical day-to-day living. He also didn’t know that there are government programs for married women. Duh!
Anyway, I’m thinking of merging the two blogs as I don’t have as much free time now. The “Married Immigrant” section of that blog contains info on Acquiring F-2, F-5 and Korean nationality. I have posted about the Mother-Child Welfare program of the Korean government and the National Basic Livelihood System. There is also a Reminder to Married Immigrants.
Fellow Pinay bloggers in Korea also have posted information useful for those planning to get married to or are already married to Koreans. Visit their sites for more info.
