i am curious to know if this poll included women who came to america without husbands, and immigrant women who married american men. if so, were there any differences in experiences?

What does your guest know about American non-Latino non-African men who proactively marry Latin women (and of course women from many other nations)? How does this trend impact the progress of feminism overall in the US?
