One of my buddies thought he went on a date with a Russian girl, but in her mind, it wasn’t a date.
According to her, in Russia it’s not a real date unless the guy picks a girl up, pays for dinner, and gets her home at a time that is comfortable for her.
In Australia and Europe, relationships often come out of groups of friends, which I’d assume equals #instantapproval. One of my buddies took a girl he was dating for only two weeks on a family vacation, and we’ve laughed about it ever since. But why do we generally wait so long to bring her home? The underlying reason we bring her home to meet the parents is to get their approval for possible marriage. Not only do immediate family members stay close, but distant relatives do as well.
Asking her father is respectful and practical because you will be spending ample time with him. Even if the father doesn’t approve, your hands are clean, and you’ve at least done your part.
Wedding bands have been worn since ancient Greece to symbolize the union and love of a couple.
Engagement rings appeared more recently, in the 15th century, when the ideas of marriage and love became more closely aligned.
These kind of rings are usually equal for both and it is important in these cases that the couple's rings are the same style.
To give a promise ring doesn't necessarily mean that you are going to marry the person, but it can often seen as a pre-engagement ring.
As consequence of three centuries of colonization by the Portuguese empire, the core of Brazilian culture is derived from the culture of Portugal.The numerous Portuguese inheritances include the language, the predominant religion and the colonial architectural styles.This diverse cultural background has helped boast many celebrations and festivals that have become known around the world, such as the Brazilian Carnival and the Bumba Meu Boi.You might even be surprised at how rich and friendly the Brazilian culture really is.The culture of Brazil is primarily Western, but presents a very diverse nature showing that an ethnic and cultural mixing occurred in the colonial period involving mostly Indigenous peoples of the coastal and most accessible riverine areas, Portuguese people and African people.
