According to Samoa News, it is quite normal in Samoan culture for an adult to provide for the elderly even after marriage. Their culture does not have retirement plans the same as they United States. So, it’s up to the children to provide for their elders.
The source added that they have to take care of the elders and if they aren’t, it brings a “great deal of shame” to the whole clan. It seems the pressure from society plays a huge role in this kind of attitude. So, it is why Tammy asks her brother Asuelu to kick in the same way she does.
