Being married, especially to a rich and handsome man is more prestigious that being single. When it comes to the requirements of the husband, apart from the stated above, he must be kind, smart and of course deeply in love with the Mexican girl.
All those stories from Mexican soap operas are not too far from reality. But even in a TV series not a single woman seeks attention of a drinking, or worse, greedy and envious man.
Despite being an exotic country, Mexico’s trend of women’s’ emancipation is strong.
You shouldn’t wait for a Mexican girl to say yes only because she was offered to get married and because she needs it for a social approval. Women in Mexico are very wayward and proud, they think highly of themselves and very often rely on their own abilities. Therefore, girls choose men who don’t put any limit upon their freedom and who treat them as equal partners in relationships. Women work on equal terms with men. For example, among taxi drivers, who are predominantly men in most countries, there are quite a few women in Mexico working in this sphere. A huge number of leadership positions are held by women and they support ironclad subordination in a team.
In large cities and urban areas, early marriage and large number of children becomes more uncommon. In the rural areas, however, old traditions are still strong. Civilization and modern trends did not pass by the Mexican region, and if the lifestyle change is positive or negative, there are no means to determine at the moment.
