The role of the Latin family has the most significant impact to Hispanic dating arrangements.
Male and female roles are usually clearly set within a Hispanic family dynamic, which quickly become apparent in the dating scene.
Girls may be expected to wait on their brothers, and the boys are mostly exempt from household responsibilities.
This can hurt a young girl's self image and roll over into her comfort with men while dating.
Along with the positive images of the Hispanic culture in the height of its passion, there are still the negative battles they face.
The more traditional Latin relationships are based on the young man leaving home to find his way and the young women staying with her family until she moves into her new husband's home.
When the family immigrated will greatly affect the strength of the ties to this heritage and dating traditions.
This dilemma places many couples involved in Hispanic dating at an uncertain crossroads.
Newer beauty standards in fashion have recently drawn attention to the appeal of the Hispanic persona.
