You are right, Jamie, when you talk about personal preference.
Like everything in life, some things you like more than others.
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.
After having met some great women in South America, it was very hard to go back to the typical “American Woman.” Now that I find myself at a point in my life in which I want a wife and a family, I am glad you have the services that make it easier to meet and get to know a woman before visiting.
Amy, you can´t begin to compare with the women of South America, who would not judge as you do.
Their families are whole and strong and the entire population is passionate about everything.
