Dating and marriage in paraguay

The Paraguayan defeat in 1870 brought new challenges. With perhaps half the country's population having perished in the conflict, women were said to outnumber men four or five to one.

It took a generation to reestablish an even ratio between the sexes.

While this image constitutes a historiographical oddity, in reality women have shaped the course of events in Paraguay in some unusual ways.

The Guaraní, the dominant ethnic group in the Paraguayan region during the pre-Columbian era, set the basic pattern.

However, for many women, the experience of war engendered a broad-based sense of nationalism and citizenship.This reinforced traditional structures governing the role of women while, at the same time, undercutting the influence of such formal, Spanish-based institutions as legally sanctioned marriage and the church.Informal liaisons remained the rule, as did long hours in the field for women.Later writers claimed that this era brought a matriarchal order to Paraguayan society, though this has never been proven conclusively.The same period did bring some significant changes.
