My boyfriend is mineiro and though I adore him I cringe that he has already mentioned the M word. This was 2 weeks after he met me! I mentioned it to a friend who has spent some time in Brazil and she commented that she wasn't surprised. She also warned me not to marry a Mineiro lest I become a slave in the kitchen! Anybody care to explain? I've previously known only randy Cariocas (sorry for the stereotype)...

It's a stereotype, yes.

Have you ever heard about divorce?

While technically a Paulista I am a real Mineiro since my Mineiro parents married in Minas before migrating to São Paulo. So I much ressent the implication that we Mineiros are chauvinist pigs. You don't need to go too far. You don't need to go anywhere. Just look at me: God's gift to womankind.

Yours truly

Minelista

Funny...he lives in SP, too!

I didn't know they were supposed to be chauvinist pigs! My bf is...uh...somewhat traditional...but he's not part of MMM by any stretch of the imagination!

So, Minelista, why don't you email me so I can bother you personally about this urgent matter? I'm dying to know some things...

OK...what is this about mineiros liking cheese more than sex???? is that why Minas is o lugar do corno? All I know about MG comes from jokes, mostly from paulistas and cariocas, and they're mainly caipira jokes (my bf is from Uberaba). My bf is only 22 and he holds marriage as a sacred thing (how many American guys think that?) and won't even hear any jokes about it. Very irritating.  He is asking to meet my parents already and I keep changing the subject. I don't know how to tell him 'no'. And I feel bad because he told his whole family that he has met the perfect girl. Too much pressure! And my friends tease me endlessly with "So, does he make you wear a burka?" or "Did he buy you a handcuff for the kitchen?" I'm not a traditional person at all....

Minas is the major cheese region producer in Brasil, the jokes are just jokes...

We're the biggest catholic country in the world, what did you expect? Not all brazilians are religious, but some can be very fanatic...

but i'm catholic too and could care less about marriage, family, etc.  he lives in SP for school and doesn't seem to think those patricinhas are good enough for him. i'm on a fast track to get my PhD- not exactly marriage material. so his interest in me as a life partner strikes me as odd (and is hilarious to my friends and Brazilian acquaintances).

Castanha,

do you wanna marry or not? Apparently not. Why then que question "should I marry a Mineiro?"

are you afraid of getting too much sex or too little? If mineiros love cheese I'm sure it is for the suggestive smell of a heavenly place.

From the Mineiros I know (and my parents are mineiros) you will be begging for less not more sex. Are you prepared for one, two, three times a day in the beginning and at least once a day for the rest of your life?

Since you seem neither romantic inclined nor altar bound, since you seem to not like the idea of marriage neither the idea of a casual affair, be honest to your Mineiro. He seems to be honest with you. Tell him you are not made for each other or anything like that.

Go have your orgasmisc thoughts and intellectual whoopees with someone more likeminded to you.

Good luck

But I didn't ask that question in my topic, just posed the idea!

Too much sex is great! but when I asked for more he actually rejected the idea because he didn't want his heart to get broken since I haven't told him the magic words yet (I love you ; I'll marry you, etc.)! I prefer a casual affair but he thinks it's vulgar. And since I'm American I could care less about romance, haha.
