Word of the Day: Matricidio

Ticos will sometimes jokingly refer to matrimonio as matricidio.

To the layperson, this implies an association between homicide and marriage. Marriage--when not done right--can kill your ambition, your sense of humor, your personal finances et al. I'm single and always have been. This is just what I hear...

Pura Vida ;)
