Many of the issues facing Belizean women today are the same as those facing the rest of the women in Latin America. Dating Latin American Women has its challenges because most of Latin America women live under a patriarchal system where the man rules. Whether it’s government, jobs, businesses or families, the man is usually at the head, and it is no different for Belizean women. Belize was under British rule since 1638 or thereabout until becoming independent in 1981, but women’s liberation did not come with autonomy from the British empire.
Belize has a small population, a little over 300 thousand people and the ethnic makeup is mainly Mestizo and Creole. If you like dark, exotic women who speak English (it is the official language), then Belize is the country where you should look for your Latin American woman.
As far as dating a woman from Belize is concerned, keep in mind that it is a very small country and relatively isolated. I have a friend who lived there for about eight years, who told me that conversations are mostly about politics and local gossip. My friend also noted that there is a small-town mentality there, with very little interest of what’s going on outside of Belize.
And please keep in mind that we are generalizing. There are women in Belize who do not accept the patriarchal paradigm and are working so that the Belizean society will change. We know this at Dating Latin American Women.com and we support it. Nevertheless, the truth is that Belize is still very much a patriarchal stronghold.
