They assured me that it’s not something Jamaican women accept; but they can’t stop a man from doing what he’s going to do, if he’s going to do it.

And the husband’s response was: “Yeah right, of your mouth.” They had this conversation in front of a car full of people and it was funny.

But the American side of me knew there were people who would cringe at such a “crass” conversation.

How a man treats a woman has very little to do with his country of origin and more about how he was taught to treat women by the men and even women who raised him.

You know what they say, the way to a man’s heart is through his stomach.

And since he’s so close to his family, don’t be surprised if his mother’s opinion holds more weight than you’re accustomed to.

If you’re a bit prudish when it comes to discussing matters of sexuality, openly…like in front of those family members we just mentioned, this Jamaican man may not be for you.

And in the case of the Jamaican man, that food needs to come from your stove, oven.

Bringing home a greasy bag of something is not quite going to cut it.

Just like anybody else there are the good and the bad. But I also know Jamaican men, both inside and outside of my family, who treat their partners like queens.
