hi I'm new, but I have firsthand experience with the latin culture. I understand your confusion about why your new brazilian wife doesn't believe she has to work, and work the situation together. It's definitely a cultural thing. She really and truly believes that her work around the house and caring for you is what she is does to contribute, and is very jealous about another woman having a place in your life at all, and the idea that any penny she earned would go into the hands of another woman. They have a perception of "what she has, I want". Which is the perception of a life of leisure, while she contributes 'her part' by staying home and looking after you. She doesn't get that money doesn't grow on trees just because we're in North America and women work too in the partnership, especially when there's child maintenance to consider. Sorry, just my opinion and my experience.
