Which is why in Chile you see alot of young 20 something Chilenas dating guys in their 40s.
Also they live at home with their parents until their 30's and in many cases, you get married, you're expected to live in another house, maybe on the back side of the property.
Its interesting to note that neither one of them is American (she is Chilean - and telling him it is customary to accept her requests and to always pay for both of them even if he is a guest.

Also Chilean men are very macho and kinda chauvenistic...quite immature as well, like Argentine men.
The vast majority of them in my opinion wont be ready marriage material until they are well into their 30's.
In America, I would be expected to provide a decent gift for the 'guest of honor', at least in keeping with the cost of my participation in the event, but I would not be expected to pay for any food or entertainment that was provided at the event, and especially not for my date - the 'guest of honor' s sister.
It doesnt seem like Chilean ettiquette is much different than American, in regard to being 'a guest'. Your post confirms what I read about falling in love quickly.
Even so, he sounds too passive, which to me, sounds like hes american.
Its this kind of stuff that causes americans to get in trouble down here.
In latin america, people are much quicker, sneakier, you have to learn to be more assertive and less non confrontational.
If not, LA will chew you up and spit you out....wont last if you dont learn some street smarts and how to be a bit more assertive down here.

If in a dating relationship - is it customary for the guy to pay for dates he is not interested in going to - like the girl's family members birthday parties at expensive restaurants all the time? In Chile dating is called "Pololeando" mi "polola" is girlfriend "pololo" is boyfriend...
No this isnt customary, she just sounds like a money gruber...needs to be a man and kick her behind to the curb.
