Abstract

This study analyzes transnational relationships as part of a social construction, in which many issues determine the decision and behaviors each individual pursues. Study focuses on the Latino population. A total of 10 recorded in person interviews were conducted with a non-formal follow up. In this research family, tradition, and religion continue to have significant ideologies on Latin@ attitudes on marriage, cohabitation, and sexuality, but current society is more accepting to non-traditional choices. It’s important to perform a study on the Latino group because it’s a rarely studied subject as the Latino population continues to grow in the United States.
