Questions about Mexican American Culture and Practices

Hello, traditional Mexican culture crew!

I spent hours reading your articles about Mexican culture and I have to say that Im impressed.

The reason why Ive been reading your articles is that Im getting married to a beautiful Mexican girl and in a week Im going to meet her family for the first time.

Weve been dating for nine months and when I asked her to marry me she said that I have to talk to her father first. In the beginning I thought she was joking but I soon realized that she is not playing.

I live in New York City and that is where we met. She came here from California and is about to graduate from college.

Now, in one week (actually six days) I will be meeting her father, mother, sister, brothers, cousins, grand father, and everybody else.

What I would really appreciate is some tips on how to act, react and what to expect.

Im 29 years old, I have a very good job, I am normal guy from the City and I just want to marry the woman of my dreams.

She is 22, beautiful, conservative and of course Mexican American.

This is why I have to know everything about Mexican American culture and practices, and I have to know it by Friday.

Oh yeah, her family is extremely rich, and her father is some big shot that everybody respects and love (I just though you should know that).

Also, her family lives in the United States for almost 100 years but is still very Mexican American. Thats what she told me. I just dont know what that exactly means.

Am I supposed to brig something? If yes, what should I bring? How should I ask her father for his daughters hand? What should I talk about with her family?

Oh, God, what if they ask me if I know some Mexican jokes?

Please Help!
