Interfaith Latin associations are a growing craze and it is essential for couples to grasp their wife’s religious/spiritual beliefs and traditions early in the relation. It can also be helpful to discuss how you plan on raising your children and what religious/spiritual values you want them to have so that there is no misunderstandings or conflict down the road.

A number of studies have shown that a large percentage of Latin Americans are Christians (90 % ), mostly Catholics, with significant proportions of Protestants and indigenous creeds. Some of the most popular Protestant denominations include Pentecostalism and Evangelicalism, with an increasing reputation in countries like Brazil, Colombia, and Mexico. In contrast, the majority of the inhabitants in most Spanish American countries practice traditional Religious beliefs and rituals and in some cases Afro- Latin American beliefs like as Santeria, Candomble, Macumba and additional tribal magic religions.

In light of this fact, Latino feminist philosophers have highlighted that for many Latinas/os religious practices create contexts for spiritual beliefs that function independently of Catholic Church framework. Benefits from this study reaffirm that for many Latinas/os, enduring social beliefs such as personalismo and simpatico allow them to link with The prince through their exclusive relationships with friends or loved ones, mother nature, and the society. They believe that the good sense of God’s presence empowers them to overcome personal and family hardships and work for social change. The study provides further evidence that these Latino cultural values can support the emergence of diverse spiritual perspectives among Latinas.
