, and a man should never call his wife names no matter how terrible the argument is. American movies show a lot of cursing (the F word seems to be the most popular).Brazilians associate cursing with gangsters and lowlifes. Many older women in Brazil are in dire economical situation due to widowhood, divorce, lack of opportunities or low paid jobs.They decide to get married and communicate it to their families, period.4) Do not even think of having a dalliance with hookers and strippers just because it is your .Here are some general pointers (which I repeat may not apply to all Brazilian women): 1) . People tend to live close to Mom and Dad, aunts and uncles. Divorce rates unfortunately are growing, so this may change. Children live with their parents until they get married.It is also a matriarchal society (although men had the power for generations, when it comes to raising kids, mothers are considered more important than fathers). That of course makes kids closer to their parents, and affects how they see their future family as well. Married people or people in committed relationships do not go out on “Boys Night Out” or “Girls Night Out” where they can flirt with other people.We are happy with a simpler ring or just the wedding band. The old fashioned on your knees proposal is not heard off in real life.
Some Brazilian women never grow up and are very dependant on their mothers.
If your GF finds out you go to these places you can expect a very strong reaction.
3) When it comes to engagement and weddings, Brazilian women are used to do things differently. We do not have that tradition (see my post about engagement rings).
11) Brazilian men and women oftentimes do not know how to fix things or are impractical due to cheap labor and being catered to all their lives.
Many Brazilians when coming to the US for the first time do not even know how to pump gas-having had gas station servers all their lives. They like a man who opens doors, drives them places, changes their oil, etc.
