Would be great to see more knowledgeable forum members post a ranking of South American and Central American countries in regard to wife/LTR potential. Opinions on other factors- livability of the country, cost of living, etc also appreciated.
Peru - probably the best blend of women, cost of living, QOL, food etc.
Mexico - women are overall good, COL can be low, but safety is a serious concern.
Colombia - similar to Mexico but a bit safer, little more expensive
Chile - women suck, but the country is safe, stable, but expensive by SA standards.
Venezuela - unlivable, women are among the worst in SA
Can't really speak with any authority on the other countries.
I currently live in Mexico, and I would put it at Medium/Good. There are areas of the country where you can still find wife material, but there are others where liberal values are taking hold (especially Mexico City and Monterrey). With regards to safety, Mexico does seem safer than many parts of the U.S. Violence between drug cartels continues to be a problem, but you don't have random indiscriminate crime or mass shootings like you have in the States. However, there are certain parts of the country you don't want to go to because they're drug cartel central. Other than that, you should be fine. Guanajuato City, where I live, is very safe; however, in some of the callejones (alleyways), muggings can happen after dark.
Colombia could be medium. Though it has more eye candy than Mexico, the women f*** like rabbits. And I heard it can be more dodgy than Mexico.
No doubt that liberal values (however we define them) are taking hold in parts of Mexico City society, but all of it? That's an urban area of 20.4m people, many of whom are migrants from other parts of Mexico.
Even amongst the environmentalist crowd, there is a surprising diversity of opinion.
