Hello, I am going to be marrying a woman in Brazil next month. I am an American man. I am 37 and she is five years younger than me.
She has also worked as a journalist in Mexico, Central America and Brazil. A lack of job opportunities, teenage pregnancy and violence at home push girls in Brazil to marry older husbands, according to research.

Although human rights have much progressed in Brazil within the last past years, Brazilian children still have to face major issues which are very often not depicted in the media. As one out of four person lives below the poverty line in Brazil, where inequalities between the rich and the poor are vividly noticeable, the children growing in the favelas are struggling to access basic needs such as access to drinking water or foodhealth care and education. Indeed, the living conditions on the spot know huge sanitary issues.
After empowering hundreds of girls and young mothers in poor communities across Rio de Janeiro, the joint programme by UN Women and International Olympic Committee enters its second phase. Last year, as year-old Dayane Santos sat with her wriggling toddler, listening to facilitators present a new programme to empower young mothers in her community, her eyes lit up as she realized this was her ticket to get back on the volleyball court. Santos had dropped out of school and left volleyball after her daughter was born and knew that opportunities were limited for her in Pedra de Guaratiba, one of the poorest communities in western Rio de Janeiro.
Brave young people are making their voices heard, on issues such as racism and police brutality. Despite having little money, they sent me to private school. I was one of just two black students. I was insulted a lot by students and teachers.
Alejandra left and another underage girl in Candido Sales working as prostitutes. The year-old, whose drug-addicted mother died on the infamous BR highway, is a working prostitute from the town where underage girls are raffled off to middle-aged men. Alejandra, 14, and another underage prostitute work the highway in the tiny, squalid town of Candido Sales.
My 18 year older daughter and a girlfriend want to travel to Brazil this summer to visit another friend who has been with us as a foreign exchange student. My daughter has traveled to Europe several times but always with us or a group, but her friend has never been outside of the US and her mother is a bit nervous. Our exchange student and her family live about an hour outside of Sao Paulo. I've been hearing stories about travellers being frequent crime victims.
