Are Latino men more likely than other men to cheat? And are Latina women raised to accept infidelity?


Latin men are known for being charismatic and intense when it comes to romancing the ladies. But that thought was taken to a whole different place when our research department found out that Latin Men are actually “raised” to cheat and Latina women are raised to accept it.

Is this information true?

Do you believe that a man's culture increases the likelihood that he'll cheat?

Do most women stay with men who cheat because it’s what their culture says they should do?

I think all men cheat regardless of the race-i think it's a personal decision so i cant say latino men cheat more because there are some latino men who never cheated. As far as the latino women being raised to except infideity- i think some laino women except their men cheating because he's the one bringing home the bread and butter he's taking care of home probably she doesnt speak the english language, no transportation, no money she rely on him solely for everything so in a since she's stuck.

I think it's not about race but how they were raised and where they were raised at. Latina's who were raised in the USA are not as accepting of cheating compared to Latina's that were raised in like Mexico or another cultural country.

I don't believe it's true that men are raised to cheat. The ones that do cheat do it out of ther own reasons. Women that stay with men who do cheat I don't understand why they stay when the man cheats over and over again. I can share my man with no one but, God and my children and thats in a christian way. But, I can be there to hand him the ball and roll with the punches with him.

I don't believe so, a cheater is a cheater no matter of their race. I'm a Latin woman and was raised by very strong women who did not allow any man to cheat on them. My grandmother was the first one to divorce her husband of over 20 yrs. when she found out about the cheating. I think in some cases religion may be the real issue. In Latin culture many are Catholic, I think that this is or was the issue for some people who chose to stay in relationships they were not happy in. Which by the way is no excuse for being unfaithful.

Years ago, yes, I would say that Latina women were more inclined to accept the infidelity of their man. TODAY, no, absolutely not. What goes around, comes around.

LOL, this is a topic that I find that I can't talk to AMerican women about. I was raised to be a wife and a mother. Not to question my husband and support all his desicion including those I don't have much faith in. But before becoming a wife and a mother, my mother schooled my on how to choose my husband and what to look for and except. We aren't fools we are looking for more than love from our men, we need comfort, convinience, security and stability. Love will eventually come but I have have to at the very least compatable with you. Infedelity is excepted becuase family is first and his social life is secondary, as long as that understanding is understood, there won't be a problem. All hetero men in my eyes are naturally attracted to other women I don't feel that I should prevent my man from being who he is.

NO, NO, NO, AND NO. GROWING UP IN A HISPANIC HOUSE HOLD. I HAVE NEVER SEEN ANY OF THIS. A MAN IS GONNA BE A MAN REGARDLESS OF CULTURE. IF YOUR GONNA CHEAT, ITS JUST GONNA HAPPEN REGARDLESS OF YOUR SKIN COLOR. AND I AM A VERY PROUD LATINO, AND IF YOU GONNA CHEAT, YOU GOT TO GO. MOM AND DAD TAUGHT US TO ALWAYS SEEK BETTER AND NEVER SETTLE FOR LESS.

I certainly hope your research is wrong. What would be the basis for instilling such values? Well let me answer my own question. I could see where teaching one's daughter to accept infidelity might make sense to some. They might have in mind the adage"let the dog rome free and he'll find his way home". However, no matter if they're taught or not, living in a sex driven culture such as American doesn't do much to curb one's carnal desires.

The word stereotype comes to mind with all the things Latin men are suppose to be; just like Blacks and everyone in between are sterotyped. I don't think Latino men cheat anymore than men from other ethic groups

I don't think women who stay with cheaters do so based on their culture, atleast not native Americans. Women who stay with cheaters do so because they want to. If it were reversed 99.9%,no 97% of the time (it's some really weak men out here) of the time a man will leave a cheating woman. Entering into a mature adult relationship one goes in giving of their whole self in addition to their love, respect, and admiration, so cheating is the ultimate betrayal to that. Unfortunately, for some women in love they're more than willing to overlook that betrayal for fear of losing that man and being alone. That's why I don't think culture has anything to do with the decision to cheat or stay with a cheater.

I think they trying to live up to a expected cultural thing. Latin men are suppose to be so macho, great lovers, and etc. and so on. They are the man and that's it. I have been advised by my spanish friends and relatives not to date Latino men because of they behavior and infidelity. It's funny that my Latino friends and relatives are involved with or married to black men who they say treat them better than their own men. They say their men are domineering and controling. What's funny is Latino men want to be unfaithful and do what ever they want but expect you to be faithful to them witthout fault.
