Or, as a Turkish proverb my father heard in that country goes, “marry off your son to an Albanian girl, but don't give your daughter to an Albanian lad!
”Foreigners have always remarked that the Albanians' warlike mentality made for good soldiers: Arnavut (Albanian) bodyguards were a priced status symbol throughout the Levant, in the 19th Century.
”) has always made me quite convinced that men have some responsibilities that women don't.
I've been Dating a married Albanian man for 6 months already and NOT proud of it. Been searching for the right man for sooo long and never found it . This man likes u and is attracted to u for sure, he would not be contacting u like he is if he didn't but he is not leaving his family for u and even if he does it would not be anytime soon and while you are wasting your time on this weak man so many opportunities u have to meet someone who will be there for u and love u is passing u by.
Im 31yrs old, I would say really good looking and sexy woman . I would never believe that I would date someone married. I was sure that when she delivers the baby, we will be done. He went away to his home land for two months with all his family , HE is still calling me and texting me every other day,the longest 3-4 days . Honey I am not judging u because i've been in pretty much the same situation so understand what I tell you is from the heart.
Make Good Wives- Wow, I didn’t know that we deserve that stupid title “A good Wife Material” or “You can count on an Albanian woman to stick by her man no matter how difficult things get financially.
Even if her man is in the wrong, an Albanian woman will be understanding and stick by her man.” Not that having a loyal woman by your side it’s not essential, actually it’s very important, but nowadays Albanian women are not much different from their western counterparts. The number of divorces in Albania not only is constantly increasing, but are mainly women filing for it.

However, this issue was the centerpiece of our problems and I would really like some insight, as much as possible, on this topic. About 7 months later I thought we spent so much time together we both coined it a relationship and we've been together since.
During this time I've had A LOT of issues with him. He hasn't solidified any plans for his future or life (he's not in school, doesn't have a good job, lives at home and does boyish things).
"Headstrong" is one of the first words that come to mind — also apt for quite a few Albanian women, although they are raised to be more modest.
Albanian men are raised with a very high ideal of masculinity: one of the strongest examples I remember from growing up is how your “word of honor” in Albanian is fjalë burri (“man's word”), and this small reference (for example, when I said as a child that I would do something, and was asked, “is that your fjalë burri?
It appears I was being foolish to a degree, wanting to just immediately pull the plug and install a 'no contact' rule. For several months now, this relationship has been more bad than good, weighing me down emotionally, and it's on super thin ice for me.
