Abstract

In 1923, Andrés, a son of the pueblo of Namiquipa, Chihuahua, brought a civil suit against his brother-in-law José. José, Andrés complained, had been "living scandalously with a senora who is not his wife," setting his son Juan such a "bad example" that the poor youth had had to move out of his home.1 Andrés told the judge that "this young man . . . wishes to take a road that is straighter than his father's and to be a man who is not a libertine." The case was resolved when José gave his son formal permission to live with his maternal grandfather.
