One cannot generalize and say that all Brazilians or Brazilian women for that mattter are the same.Brazilians differ in terms of socio-economic status, class, educational levels and ethnicity.On the other hand, there are some cultural similarities in the way people are raised.
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.
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.
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.
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.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.4) Do not even think of having a dalliance with hookers and strippers just because it is your .We consider that cheating and don’t be surprised if your fiancé cancels the wedding if she finds out. Very few men celebrate that, while the bride’s friends do get together to get her presents for her new home.
