The perfect ideal would be marriage but “situational ethics” often prohibits this.
As with dating and marrying older men it is the “social norm”, and most Colombian women just resign to the fact that they are not the only woman in a relationship with a man, the wives’ often accept the fact their husbands have other girlfriends and the single women that have boyfriends accept the fact that their boyfriends have wives‘, so yes Colombian women can be content in a non-marriage relationship or if you just regard them as your “significant other”, they not only accept it as a fact of life they expect it.
Another concern that many gentlemen have when contemplating bringing back a spouse from abroad, is once she gets here will she assimilate to our American culture or be “American standardized” in her ideals, thinking and mannerisms.
I do not have a crystal ball, and no agency owner can say these women come with guarantees, I say that because I have actually heard it and read it before!
In Latin culture it is socially practiced and acceptable for younger women to have courtships and marriage with men much older than they are, the sociological coined phrase is “the social norm”.
In America unless a man is rich or famous you don’t normally see this activity, in America it is unusual for younger women to so much as have a platonic conversation with an older man let a lone an intimate relationship with him!
Personally I am indifferent regarding this issue but what ever two consenting adults agree on and accept, that is a personal relationship covenant between them and my name is Bennet and I ain’t in it!
Therefore it is of my professional opinion even though they deserve better Colombian women can be content, function and be perfectly happy in a non-marriage relationship.
(1) women by world population have always vastly out numbered men by at least 7 to 1 and historically there has never been enough available men to account for the influx of women in the world population (2) women were subjected to a chauvinistic male dominated culture and extreme degradation, primarily based on their sexual gender, often mistreated and classified as (second class citizens), they were systematically held in contempt and deprived of all social, political, economical, and professional rights, there were no civil or sexual discrimination laws that protected their essential interests from employment discrimination and in opportunities, likewise there was no welfare system, food cards, section 8, Medicare, domestic violence laws, equal division of marital assets upon divorce, a woman did not even have the right to divorce a man but if a woman messed up one meal the man had a legitimate right to say I divorce you 3 times and the marriage was terminated!
this historical fact was called “the law of burnt bread“.
Therefore when you attempt to establish communication and relationships with South American women abroad always, do not impute the “American standard” and concept about women in general, keep a healthy level of mental understanding and discretion in your logical thinking or approach, it will be most instrumental in your sincere attempt to build a fruitful relationship.
Equivocally comparing American women to Latin women is like comparing “apples to oranges“, it is just not practical nor applicable, they are two different pedigrees altogether and they are neither parenthetical nor synonymous to each other, everything you think you know and have learned about women from childhood must go out the window when relating to Colombian women, always keep an open mind and be objective because the rules for relationships and communication pertaining to American women emphatically do not apply to Colombian women. but before we discuss this question remember the rule of thumb and disengage the “American standard” or concept of love and compatibility and apply the Colombian social-cultural idealism, don’t compare “apples to oranges” or your interpretation of the matter will be skewed, especially regarding this controversial issue because the standard of a Colombian woman’s perspective is not equivocal to that of an American woman’s ideal.
As Americans we are usually only familiar with what we have been exposed to from our immediate circumstances and environment that we derived from our youth, our perception about women in general is “American standardized”, through association with our mothers, sisters, aunts, girlfriends, secular occupations and platonic relationships, etc; Over the many years of our existence by “social intercourse” and “relationship experiences” with the opposite sex, we have formulated thoughts, opinions and various logical concepts, be they true or false about the behavioral traits and the psychology of a women’s emotions and intelligence.
