While you may be correct, you obviously haven't seen the young ladies who seem to have been turned over to Brittany Speers, etc. by their families to be raised - judging by their clothing and some of the attitudes displayed. It's probably too late to hope that they don't become polluted by US pop culture.
Unfortunately, also, part of the "love of family" is the beatings that macho Mexican men give their wives in the lower classes and the mistresses that are standard for those in the upper classes. Please, when you come to Mexico come without your rose colored glasses.
Also, the religion is not religion as you know it. It contributes to keeping the lower classes down, contributes to an unsustainable population growth, and prevents a lot of Mexicans from attaining any sort of savings or accumulation of wealth that could be used to better their lot in life.
It is admirable that they love their God (or Gods probably if one really analyzes what happens here in Mexico), but don't think it is any sort of religion with which you are familiar.
