Mexicans are very similar to the Portuguese with their temperamental and quick temper, about which the stories and legends are composed. Mexicans, do not tolerate ridicule in any form, believing that this humiliates their dignity.
Hot and passionate Mexican men are capable of very strong feelings, they love sincerely and give this feeling to themselves. Along with this, they have mad jealousy, which sometimes transcends boundaries and manifests itself in cruelty towards women.
His wife, a Mexican can be jealous of any passerby, and jealousy can even arise from scratch. For Mexicans, it’s better to seem ridiculous than to be recognized as a cuckold, and he also can not tolerate ridicule on any side.
For this reason, women are very careful not only in their behavior, but even in their words, they always have to watch what and to whom they say, because many things can be transferred to the spouse wrongly, and then problems can not be avoided.
In principle, women are trying not to be close to a stranger and even too often communicate with their relatives by men. The women in Mexico, too, did not go far from men’s jealousy, they also quickly light up, like a flared match.
There are often scandals and quarrels in the family with mutual reproaches and insults. However, parents will never find out when there are children in the house, so as not to disturb their peace of mind and not to cloud their children’s unclouded life.
For the Mexicans, the family is not only the spouse, the spouse, the children who are loved by everyone in the family, the family means parents as well as all more or less close relatives, who sometimes have a great many.
You can not even immediately understand who and what belongs to relatives, and how close these relatives are to each other, but they are all friendly and strongly connected by common family traditions and norms of behavior.
In a Mexican family, women do not work, the responsibilities of the household and the upbringing of children are on their shoulders. Women, of course, can work, but this is not mandatory, and some men are even categorically against it, since they believe that all financial issues are to be decided in Mexico by only a man.
The man is the main breadwinner in the family, and he is obliged to bring home money, the woman and the house have enough work to do, she is loaded with domestic cares and raising children.
Mexicans differ in their cleanliness, and therefore cleaning in the house is held several times a week, the same applies to washing. By the time the man returns home, the house must be in order, his table should be waiting for a hot and plentiful dinner.
A man in Mexico, of course, is considered strong, but this does not mean that he does something about the house on his own, this concerns even the most basic things, like, for example, hammering a nail and adjusting the door handle. For all this they think there are masters. A man in Mexico is not fit to do any homework.
In Mexican families, a distinctive feature is women’s solidarity. The whole female half of the family in Mexico is very close to each other and always share the most intimate things.
The daughter-in-law and mother-in-law become the closest friends who can communicate with each other absolutely on all topics and mother-in-law takes an active part in the life of her son, always listens to the complaints of her daughter-in-law, trying to take measures to eliminate family problems. In addition, the mother-in-law is not a substitute source of information and she can give any advice to her daughter-in-law even in an intimate relationship.
When all the Mexican families gather on all the significant dates and events, then these meetings are noisy and stormy. Mexicans like to express their emotions and such activities for them are just a joy, because there they can talk a lot and talk with those people who have not been seen for a long time.
Children for Mexicans are really flowers of life. Love for children here can not be measured by any framework, they have the same rights in the family with adults and enjoy complete freedom.
Children invariably take part in all family events and celebrations; in Mexico, all important and important family councils necessarily have children. Mexicans never punish their children, sometimes even encourage their hooliganism, especially this concerns boys.
Mexican men are directly involved in the upbringing of their children. They do not see anything shameful in feeding, changing or batting a child, and as for walking with children and sharing family vacations, there’s nothing to talk about, because the man is the very first to organize such events.
Moreover, a man himself can take leave to care for a child and this despite the fact that the mother does not work and is at home.
Children in Mexico are very late growing up precisely because they are too much taken care of by their parents. Even becoming adults, they are not able to completely get rid of parental dependence.
Parents find it difficult to part with their children, when children are going to start their own families and leave the parents’ home, parents are very hard to agree with this.
Throughout life, parents support their children in every possible way, especially for their sons, because they receive the most parental, and especially maternal love.
Mothers are very hard to part with their pets. However, parting is loud, because the sons spend a lot of time with their mother, and the mother herself often visits her son’s house.
With such an attitude of children, you can not even say that parents in a Mexican family never remain alone, they are always looked after by their children. They can even be taken to their home by one of the children, but never Mexicans will not surrender their parents to nursing homes.
