The history of women in Puerto Rico traces back its roots to the Taíno, the inhabitants of the island before the arrival of Spaniards.
The culture of Puerto Rico is the result of a number of international and indigenous influences, both past and present.
Modern cultural manifestations showcase the island's rich history and help to create an identity which is a melting pot of cultures - Taíno (Aboriginal/First Nation/Indigenous), European (Spanish, Canary Island, Corsican and Irish), African(West African), Anglo American (U. A.), Latin American/Caribbean Asian, Hawaiian and other influences.
Marriages in Puerto Rico are usually recognized by the Catholic church.
Common-law or consensual unions, once typical in peasant regions, have become less common.
They are up to date on modern fashions, wear provocative clothing, and wear cosmetics. Jester, many Latinas even with many of the so-called "Cons" characteristics make excellent girlfriends and wives. My own Mexican girlfriend has many of the traits above, such as: Pros. You better off going to South America or Central America, Eastern Europe or Asia where the women don't act like the Feminazis we have all over the US. Sexually attracted, and like the fact that I "get" their culture.
I wouldn't call them generalizations, but they certainly are patterns. Best advice I can give is not to consider Puerto Rico as a place to date women. Focused dedicated monogamy just didn't pay off for me in the past. We say AW are damaged but speaking for myself, the experience has left me damaged as well. Marriage takes place at a young age, usually in the teens, and most Puerto Ricans desire children shortly after marriage.Both marriage and the birth of children are important events in terms of forming bonds between families and households, with well-established visiting patterns among related households and compadrazgo relations formed between households at the baptisms of children. The Puerto Rican diaspora has had a strong influence on the character of the domestic unit.The Arawakan achievements included construction of ceremonial ball parks whose boundaries were marked by upright stone dolmens, development of a universal language, and creation of a complicated religious cosmology.There was a hierarchy of deities who inhabited the sky; Yocahu was the supreme Creator.In Puerto Rico, the typical unit consists of a woman and man and their unmarried children, yet it is not uncommon for unmarried or widowed parents to live with their children, and visiting patterns among households and dwellings are such that the lines between households often become blurred.
