They decide to get married and communicate it to their families, period.
They take their kids’ side if they have arguments with their spouses and sometimes destroy marriages with their interference.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.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).
