The "Latina" has held to virtues that might be listed as "the joy of being a woman," feminine grooming, happiness that men are men, the desire to nurture a tight knit family, and a husband to provide a comfortable home while she tends to the comforts and needs of the immediate and distant family, and I am forced to add that they do so without keeping score regarding household chores.
After traveling the world with my wife for eight years and for another eight years after her death from breast cancer, I have experienced up close the dilemma that the South American woman faces, that which is termed Machismo.
You are right, Jamie, when you talk about personal preference.
Like everything in life, some things you like more than others.
The men are strong but fall short of social expectations, which has been destructive to the state of marital bliss for centuries.
NOTE: most North Americans, and especially the women, do not know the real meaning of machismo.
One cannot apply western values to South American virtues as they aren´t comparable.
The word "values" is very different from the word "virtues." They are two different words with two entirely different meanings. The Latina is looking for male virtues, and the North American male is looking for comfort and appreciation, that which he values.
Amy, you can´t begin to compare with the women of South America, who would not judge as you do.
I have had the misfortune to date a few gals from the US of A recently and have been severely disappointed and sometimes horrified at the lifestyle they lead.
This has nothing to do with the economic capability of these women.
There is apparently a need, and you are apparently speaking to that need, both to the Latina and the American male, both of whom are tired of the fight.
The origin of that need becomes evident quickly, and I suppose that is grounds for anger though that anger, should be turned inward, not outward.
