I don’t think it’s necessarily a Hispanic thing. It’s probably more socioeconomic. He might be the best thing going for her right now, even if he’s a loser. Later on, she might shed him or stay dependent upon him for life. I had a friend who married at 18 (Hispanic) to a guy who seemed to have it all together – American pilot, photographer, older. He was actually a loser who suggested keeping their marriage ‘open’ after they were married. Eventually they divorced, and she moved on. Did he use her, or did she use him?
