Family life in Venezuela

By: Bryce Loux

belief or view on family

  • Family ties are strong and most families are close-knit, gathering for holidays and aiding each other during times of medical or economic distress. If members of a family are affluent, they customarily share their wealth with less-fortunate relatives. Households commonly include members of the extended family, usually grandparents. The elderly are treated with great respect, and grandmothers are especially revered. They often pass on religious and moral values to their grandchildren.

Interesting fact of Venezuelan family

  • Children typically live with their parents until they have graduated from college and can afford to live on their own, sometimes remaining in the parental home even after they have married and had children of their own.
