  1. I guess they do! There are some 60 million of them there in Mexico and for what I am hearing, Mexico is not running out of people. So they marry and have kids. Are they good wives? Depends on who you ask! Many Mexican men actually told me that I was crazy to prefer a woman from Mexico over those “gorgeous, very open minded and easier to get gringas”. You see, generalisations about other people are made everywhere! It is always challenging to marry into another culture. Besides getting to know your new spouse, you also get to “learn” his/her culture.

    From personal experience, we are currently married for 26 years and I have lived 21 years in Mexico with my wife, I would say that a woman from Mexico could make a good wife for you if:

    You are a bit adventurous and like getting surprised! Most Mexicans, men and women, cherish their personal freedom and love not being lectured to what to do.

    Can take a bit of bossiness from her without starting an argument. Just man up and rise to the challenge of living with a temperamental woman. Many seem to be a bit jealous, too. That just might be engrained into the culture. Mine took an advanced course about being jealous. You either enjoy getting cared for this way or you just learn how to tolerate it.

    Many Mexican women just love to run their household affairs on their own terms. Whatever they are! So stay open-minded and do not try to impose your views in a section, where you have no business to get involved 🙂 You still get to carry the trash out, though.

    You are into big family parties and like to spend your vacations with your in-laws! Mexican people love being with their extended family and usually do not feel at ease being away from them for long periods of time.

    You do not believe that Mexican women, as supposedly being used to machoism and repression by the Catholic Church, are easier on abusive or cheating husbands and accept phony moral standards. Certainly the girls from up North will give you most likely the boot if you dare to try to impose such stuff on them.

    If you want to marry a woman from Mexico, you are well advised to love her country almost as much as herself. And eat whatever she will cook for you!

    Of course, this is a bit sketchy as well, but there are certainly many people out there that would fit into this description. One word of caution at the end:

    In Mexico it is still socially somewhat accepted to “marry up” into a better life. Meaning marriage out of convenience, mostly economical. In Mexico as anywhere else, women do not usually throw themselves at any foreign-born man without having something up their sleeve. So if something seems too good to be true…. it usually IS too good to be true!

  2. Having dated bunch of Mexican women both in Mexico and in the US and having been in couple of serious relationships, here is my take. This is just my observation and experience and no way reflects the mexican culture

    Always go only for educated (at least a college degree) one. Otherwise be ready to face unreasonable temper and unwarranted jealousy. They have no ambition and nothing to do beyond their work (if they do) and so they crave for attention. If you don’t given them the amount and kind of attention, they don’t mind seeking elsewhere
    Women in Mexico: Someone here rightly pointed out that they “marry up”. If she is not fat and good looking, she always has her eyes on the next guy who is ready to provide better financial
    They have no issues with cheating. This is more rampant among Mexican men but Mexican women are more promiscuous than your average asian, white or black
    Bossy: They are relatively bossy They want best of “feminism” and “tradition”. I’m free to do whatever I want to and whatever I want to buy but you pay for it attitude
    I find them to be great girlfriends but I personally never found them as long term prospects because the moment you face any difficulties, they turn their back on you
