And of course sending money and such is done without question.
I am very upset by your words, because what people in Europe think about american is that they are stupid, have no clue where Spain is, etc. But I have been there some times, and I have seen that not all the american are that stupid European people think, so instead of going into a general way of thinking. Please think a bit about the next question, what is gonna do a girl whose family lives in Boston, MA and that got married with a LA dude, and live in SF. He can see his family easier than her, and she is gonna try to speak with her family as much as she can, even try to visit them as much as possible.
So please do not be so and think how important family is for the rest of us.
