What is “traditionalism” and how does it relate to family values? What are the family values that concern parental responsibility in raising children? Who do the Puerto Ricans say should be the decision maker in the family? Should women with small children work outside the home? Should husbands share responsibility for housework? Should a wife always obey her husband? Should a wife continue her formal education after marriage? If possible, should she choose to earn more money than her husband does? Should boys and girls be raised with similar attitudes about helping with housework? Who makes the major decisions for the family and who is responsible for the decisions for everyday activities? How religious are they? Does fatalism play a role in their major decisions and problems?
