Sometimes men participate as well (a tradition that is also starting here).
, to do girly things (they may have piano and ballet lessons, not play baseball or rough sports, for example).
No strip clubs for men in committed relationships either.
If your GF finds out you go to these places you can expect a very strong reaction.
Don’t be surprised if both of you have communication problems due to upbringing differences, as well as food preferences and other habits that can cause trouble.
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.
The subtle difference between holding a hand and chaining a soul.Some of us though, after living in America and seeing so many De Beers ads, may want a diamond ring after all. Americans love the whole creative proposal thing; Brazilians don’t.They decide to get married and communicate it to their families, period.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.Men might play soccer with their buddies in the afternoon, women might have a coffee and go shoppping with their female friends but they do not go out at night and leave their partner alone at home.That is typical of countries that were afflicted by the horrible thing that slavery was.Brazil had slavery just like the American South, and one of the consequences of slavery is that it can take several generations for their descendants to reach the same level of success in life that their former owners have.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).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.Working with your hands in Brazil is also associated with the lower economic classes.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.
