I hate to ask, but is it because they assume they're rich doormats? Or is it because of "machismo" in Latin men? Also, where in Colombia are you based out of?
What’s happening in LatAm is a bad sign- fathers are teaching their daughters behavior that they never would accept.
My girlfriend’s dad taught her to never rely on a man- get education and make $$. Her car breaks down a few months back and her dad is pissed at me that I didn’t fix it immediately (tied up n a conference call). Well...you taught her to not need a man...and now you’re pissed at me because I didn’t take care of it?
it doesn’t work that way, muchacho. So, naturally she’s confused and has expectations that can’t be rationalized...manifesting in giving me a hard time...something her father would never accept from a woman.
To give you an idea of the level of machismo of this guy his wife who is 58 has never driven a car. She couldn’t drive a car if she had to save her life. He won’t allow it- he drives her everywhere.
