If you are someone that decides to marry a latin mail order wife, then the problem that will most likely occur is difficulty in communication. You will have to start communicating through telephone, mail, email, and maybe even through video chat. If you decide to have a date with your bride-to-be, then you will have to date in the virtual world. Not all latin mail order brides speak English so there may be a language barrier. If you have asked an agency to help you look for your latin wife, then they may provide you with translation services. However, these services are not free and are expensive.


There are many latin mail order wife agencies on the Internet and there is a possibility that you may become the victim of a scam. Scam agencies just utilize pictures of girls on the Internet and portray them as latin mail order brides. They will ask you to pay large sums of cash and once you pay through your credit card you will not hear from the agency ever again.

In addition, as you might imagine, some of these ladies have personal aims. They may want to marry the man because they want to leave their deplorable conditions and their poverty stricken country behind. Do not fall for these scams. At times women will also tell you about their conditions and will urge you to send them money. You have to be smart so that you are not fooled by such women.


If they are so inclined, these women can be very smart and they will fool men by asserting their control over their life. They may use seductive ways to get their husband to give them money. Some mail order wives escape or run away after they have been able to collect money from their Western husbands. This can become a very serious case and that is why one should be careful when finding a latin wives through an agency.


Men have the hope that they will be able to receive more affection and commitment from their latin mail order wife. Western men may not have a positive experience with Western women and this is the reason why they turn to latin mail order brides. However, every man should be careful online because you do not know the intentions of women online. Some women may be sincere, but others have their own goals. These women are strangers and you should get to know the lady that you meet completely before you make any rash decisions.

Latin Wives Features

Physically, these girls are the arch-typical Latinas: dark skinned, usually olive to brown complected, sharp etched facial features, tending towards lithe and very skinny. Dark eyes and darker hair, typically surrounding very pretty faces. Their lips tend to be sharp and thin, with just a hint of facial hair on their upper lip. While some men consider the typical latin girl to be “bony and skinny”, it is precisely these characteristics that are so prized.

Looking past their face, these girls tend to have slight, skinny frames, highlighted by small busts and relatively flat, tight buttocks. Most would be considered short by current standards. While appearances might suggest otherwise, these girls are usually very strong. In fact, their body type and musculature are part of what makes them such good dancers.

Unfortunately, there are a lot of misconceptions regarding their sexuality, and at the extreme are occasionally stereotyped as promiscuous. In reality, this couldn’t be further from the truth. Men who prefer Latin American brides know that their culture is such that extra-marital or premarital affairs are quite rare. In fact, these are what could be considered by some to be ‘prudes’, simply because their culture frowns on the promiscuous attitudes common among Western women and girls.

These cultural mores extend to dating. Latin girls can be quite hard to date, in part because of the strong family ties and bias towards long-term relationships where the family has considerable say over who these girls date or get involved with. Western men, particularly Americans, often learn the hard way: before taking their prospective brides out on even a first date, they’ll have to meet at least the immediate family, and in essence “pass inspection” before the girl will be permitted to go on a date without a chaperon. Then again, it is this tight family focus that also insures strong, committed marriages should one be fortunate enough to get past that first date.

Among Latin women, it is Colombians that vie most closely with Mexicans in terms of looks or physical appearance, a strong family orientation, and similar cultural upbringing.
