Serbian Men attitudes toward wives




As you might already have heard, Serbian men are of patriarchal behavior and that means are not able to treat women in a very kind manner and for most of western women it could be even unacceptable. But there are many stereotypes by which we know about Serbian man and very often they do not have anything common with the reality. Men are different everywhere, but you cannot judge personality according to the origin or the country he/she is from. At least if you do, it would be unfair as, for example, all Serbian men are different. But today we talk about stereotypes and the most common we would describe in our article.

In general Serbian man differs from American man by traditional point of view according to women. Serb will expect his woman has to prepare food and do the housework. They like when woman is dressed up well and this is what women in Serbia do. Opinion of Serbian men about American women is they are fat, not pretty and dress horrible. If you go for a date with Serbian man, he will pay for both in restaurant, otherwise he might be offended, and by thinking you considered he is poor or earns not much.

Serbian man adores his mother and sisters and would always defend them. In some Serbian families it is common when man lives with his wife and parents and here the problems appears with mother-in-law, as she is eager to give advices about everything, including your family life, cooking and cleaning the house, she is authority in the family and very often she is the reason of divorce in many families. Serbian man worships his mother and her opinion I usually more important to him than the opinion of his wife. Sometimes men from Serbia are very possessive, demanding and jealous. It might be hard for western emancipated got used to freedom woman to understand, that Serbian man is always dominant in relations and family, so if you can’t take that fact and it is unacceptable to you, you better not have close relations with Serbian man.

Very often the mother of Serbian guy becomes kind of competitor for his girlfriend or wife. She would check you and even if you are doing well, and she is smiling to you, she will treat you not very good. And if you are foreign girls, this could be doubled. It is like the tradition in Serbian families, when mother-in-law hates her daughter-in-law and in every possible moment humiliates her. Of course, it is not always like that, but very often it is so, so be prepared, just in case.

We gave some negative examples and bad generalizations, let’s say, the worst could happen to woman who got married in Serbia. But generalizations are not always good thing to do, as they might be offensive and even inappropriate in many cases. Many women, who were married to Serbian men feel themselves under strong defense and say their husbands treat them like queen. Many men many minds, but it is better to know all the possible attitudes, learn from the experience of other women who had relations with Serbian man and hope for the best, building your own happiness.

    This describes really well a stereotype of a Serbian “man”. But this description is only valid if you descibe Serbian man in Serbia. The difference is, if they grew up in a western country. Then they are highly influenced by the western civilization. And educated.
