Comments  Summary  Reviews

Summary: The basic ingredients for a good romance are the same for women everywhere-love, respect, admiration, and desire. What makes romantic relationships unique for Hispanic women is the ever-widening gap between the pressures of their modern American life and the cultural expectations of their tradition-based families. With the wisdom, warmth, and humor of an older sister, journalist and relationship expert Valerie Menard offers valuable guidance on romantic and cultural issues exclusive to Latinas, including dating and marriage rituals, which traditions to keep and which to discard, dating outside the Hispanic community, the "sexy Latina" stereotype, and much more. Fun and informative, Latinas in Love will show Latinas of all ages how to balance their Hispanic traditions with modern American lessons to find the healthy and satisfying relationship they've been searching for. This book is fun, sensible, sassy, informative-a one-of-a-kind guide to love and romance for the modern day Latina, from Valerie Menard who regularly doles out romantic guidance in her advice columns for Moderna magazine.
