Chapter Summary

What happened to the newlyweds after their marriage? What kind of households did they set up? How did these Chinese merchant families negotiate the differing socio-cultural traditions - Hispanic, Chinese, Catholic, Buddhist, "local" - that each party brought into the marriage and into their private domain? This chapter aims to describe the familial practices of these Chinese merchant families - from the way they raised their children to the distribution of the family inheritance. The picture described in the chapter is necessarily general and incomplete, and is meant to give the reader a glimpse, and not a template, of what family life might have been for these families.

Keywords: Chinese merchant families; family life
