Dating and marriage customs in chile ie dating and marriage
We’re not the kind of women who sit around and cry “woe is me” about having a long distance love, but who pick up and go to see where destiny and fate take us.
Further, many of these women initially came to Chile on study abroad programs when they were very, very young – even before love was ever an option in Chile!
These type of women, in general, are not those who run away from something but in my opinion, run towards something!
In my own experience I believe that the women I’ve met here, myself included, are courageous women who have their head on straight and who know what they want and who go after it.
I see go-getters; I see strong-willed; I see adapting; I see adventurous; I see respectful; I see women who literally go to the ends of the Earth for love…
I’ll speak of the women first since as a woman, I’ve got more material.
To begin with, I don’t know a single non-Chilean woman who lives here that has come “running” from her home country in order to desperately find love here in Chile.
Having made the move from the US to Chile less than a year ago, I can attest that there is no such thing as merely “running to” Chile.
Chile’s Library of Congress explains that Chile’s Civil Code defines Civil Matrimony as: “…a solemn contract through which a man and a woman join together indissolubly, for their entire lives, to live together, procreate, and provide mutual aid to each other.” (art.102 of the Library of Congress explanation of Chilean marriage also has its own system of prenuptial agreements built in, and when asking for the appointment for their civil wedding the couple must stipulate one of 3 options for how their belongings will be divided.
