My wife is from south of the border. She's a good, devout Catholic girl, as close to perfect as I can imagine a wife being. We lived in her country for a few years, moved down there shortly after my daughter was born. While the other guys make great points about not wanting to live in the US due to the strong possibility of globohomo culture corrupting their hypothetical future kids, on the other hand while my daughter who actually exists is still little I'm very glad we're back in the US now. This is because there's a much higher possibility of her being sexually molested in my wife's country and a much lower chance of my being able to do anything about it if it were to happen, and I think that would be true pretty much anywhere in Latin America.After browsing this thread, looks like there's not one person on the forum who moved from North America with a wife and at least one child to Latin America?
I would be very much interested in hearing their story. Being single and cruising the planet is one thing, but making a leap with the family is totally different.
One of my wife's cousins specifically warned me about one of her uncles, and on a few occasions I saw very young boys in the family do disturbing things to and around my daughter when she wasn't yet two. I wouldn't say that people in my wife's country accept sexually abusing young girls as OK, but there's almost an attitude that it's inevitable. "If a guy has a niece and she's kind of hot, things happen" seemed to be the attitude. It's something you don't pick up on until you actually have a small daughter there and are trying to keep her safe. There's a reason that Latina women who were molested by an uncle when they were little is a trope. I don't miss worrying about it at all.
