It's not stereotype, but true is that polish women have more self respect..

Random observations:

Pre-marital sex has long been the norm in Poland. Typically a serious couple that might get married starts having sex. If they break up before getting married, well that can happen. On the other hand, if pregnancy results, the wedding plans are moved up (the proportion of visibly pregnant brides is pretty high). The parents may not be happy about this, but they did the same thing and their kids are liable to know it which doesn't give them much room for making sermons.

Random sleeping around has never been the norm and is very much looked down on.

So, very few Polish people expect a woman to be a virgin at marriage. On the other hand, the expectation is that sex has been restricted to serious relationships. Also note, many Polish women are not catholic enough to restrain from pre-marital sex but they are catholic enough to not use birth control. If you're not ready for parenthood and have a Polish girlfriend, take contraception into your own hands (so to speak).

I don't know if Polish guys are really that possessive but:
a) the things that make them jealous are different than the things that make western guys jealous
b) there's a psychotic sub-class that never knows when to let go (generally not violent but very annoying - a friend tells me how his wife's former suitor showed up at their honeymoon hotel).

Age of first marriage is trending up. I remember when female students expected to be married (at least engaged) by the end of their studies. That's just not the case anymore.

Divorce is also trending up. Formerly, a couple that would probably get divorced in the US would still live together but quietly agree to have their own (discreet) private lives. Now, they're more likely to get divorced.

One of the most common causes of divorce in Poland are meddling in-laws (his or hers). Young couples traditionally had to rely on help from parents and the parents used this to try to maximize their influence over the young couple, usually with bad results.
