Portugueses are very temperamental people and their quick temper became known all over the world. Hot Portuguese men love their women very sincerely and strongly, but are distinguished by insane jealousy. They can be jealous of their spouse even to any pillar, and jealousy can break out even from scratch.
Portugueses believe that it is better to be stupid and ridiculous than to be the one to whom the woman has set the horns. Because of this, women are very careful when choosing their interlocutors and generally in all their behavior. Although they do not differ in a gentle character and are also prone to jealousy.
Family for a Portuguese is not only a loved one nearby and adorable children. Of course, they include their parents, as well as all more or less close relatives, the number of which is simply impossible to count. All this huge family is very often going to the most important holidays in life.
For Portuguese families, a non-working spouse is typical. Portuguese women, of course, can and work, but this is not necessary, because all financial issues are to be solved only by a man. Only he is the main breadwinner, who brings home money. However, staying at home, the woman is loaded with homework.
Portugueses are very clean, so cleaning in the house is held several times a week, as well as washing. To the arrival of her husband from work, the house should reign full order, on the table it should wait for a hot and delicious dinner.
Although the man performs the basic functions of the stronger sex in the house, all that concerns the furniture of the house, which the Portuguese like to move from place to place, constantly changing the situation in the house, before hammering a nail – this their functions can be finished.
Because of this, Portuguese men are absolutely not fit to fix the plumbing, they just do not even think that they can solve small problems on their own. In such cases, they always turn to real professionals.
Women’s half of Portuguese families are very close to each other people and are ready to share the most intimate things. The daughter-in-law can communicate with her mother-in-law very frankly on any topic, even related to her intimate life, and her mother-in-law will always give not only practical advice, but she will even offer her services, she will do everything to help in the problem.
Meetings of relatives are always stormy and noisy, a lot of emotions are always pouring out. These meetings are held as if the relatives had not seen each other for a very long time.
In their children, the Portuguese simply do not worship the soul. Love for children here is simply limitless. Children have the same rights in the family with their adult members. They take part in all family events and celebrations, all family councils are necessarily attended by children of all ages.
Portugueses never punish their children, it seems that the more the child screams, the more noise from him and the more often he participates in fights, the happier parents are. They are not prohibited absolutely anything and pampered for any reason and, with all absolutely family members.
No one will be forced to go to bed and in the middle of the night one can see a child playing in the middle of the room and happy and happy parents next to him. In the education of children, the father takes an active part. They are not afraid of anything, do not be afraid of changing diapers and diapers, tedious feeding and cries of the child at night.
A father can rise in the middle of the night to the sound of a screaming child and feed him or change a diaper. Despite the fact that the mother is on parental leave and that she does not work at all, a man can take leave to take care of a child in case of illness, and leave him without any unnecessary conversations.
For the reason that Portuguese people are so sensitive to children, they become very independent later and even when their hair is already gray, parents continue to consider them only small and inexperienced babies.
Parents are very painful about parting with their children, and when they are going to start their own families and go to their homes, parents are sincere, they can not understand why children do not want to stay in their parents’ house. Even when children still leave their parents, everyone also continues to cajole them, very often they go to visit, and the children themselves gather in the house of their parents all the time.
As well as growing up, children learn for a long time. Education in Portugal is very humane to those who do not want to study and on one course of the university you can sit as long as you want years. Sometimes it happens that Portuguese universities graduate in 10 or 12 years instead of the required 6 years. However, admission to an ordinary university is not difficult to pass at all.
Of particular importance for Portuguese are their parents, and even when they are no longer able to take care of themselves, the children will not leave them without any supervision. Almost all Portuguese families take responsibility for caring for their elderly parents, instead of taking them to a nursing home.
Children are ready to endure all the old-fashioned vagaries, weakness and infirmity, constantly disappearing memory and hearing, the main thing is that parents feel the love of their children and know that they will always be under supervision and surrounded by warmth and comfort. Women who are at home are willing to spend their time on their parents or on the parents of their husbands. Pensioners are compulsorily led to a hairdresser and make them a manicure.
In addition, there are a lot of clubs in Portugal where pensioners gather when their children are at work. In such clubs, everyone can choose a lesson for themselves, for example, embroider or knit, play board games, create their own hands various crafts and souvenirs from different materials. These clubs provide an opportunity for Portuguese pensioners to communicate with their peers.
