Do Poles consider getting married more than other nations?

Does the Polish Community think more of marriage say than the Americans, because since listening to you good people, you seem to take alot of other things seriously. Us in the west i guess take some things for grantes, like marriage, and were just curious if Poland did.

If not im open to offeres straight away.

It's very hard to have a divorce when you get married in catholic church. People do vow to be together until the death takes them apart, and they do try to stick to it. If one is not sure, then for the sake of the children he better don't do it. So yeah, marriage in Poland is a very serious matter.

I wonder about marriages in the Polish community too. There is definitely the religious aspect mentioned by Martyjasz. But then again divorces and betrayals also happen in Poland. Like any other country Poland is developing and people are taking on Western ways of living. More people now live together without marriage than before.

Just looking at friends and family in Poland I noticed more people stay together in Poland than in the UK. I wonder how much this also has to do with the economic situation. I wonder how many marriages stay together as that way they both work and can support one another (many people I know could not survive on one wage which sometimes is 700zl just over £100; example of my Aunt who also has 2 children). On the other hand I noticed that in the UK we all have enough money to survive and we do not need another person to have a better life, just like we don't need neighbours etc.

I sometimes wonder if being poorer does make people stick together more.

I think there is one reason for that - in Poland people don't have so many life opportunities like in the UK so they sort of "stick" together as it's easier to go through (hard) life together. But people should be together no matter how bad the economic or political situation is.

Ya i agree it is very hard to get a divorce in a catholic church... but people do get divorced... well in the UK King Henry VIII invented divorce....? did he not? i mean when he wanted to get an annulement from Katherine of Aragon... and besides the UK is more protestant... so that could be another reason... but it also depends on the situation and who the people are... like what if they rushed into marriage a little to early... they made a mistake or whatever..!!

Nah, he didn't invent divorce.
He did something much more cool and befitting of a king; he invented a new brand of religion, with him as boss, so he could get divorced whenever he felt like it, instead of having to kiss the Pope's infallable backside in order to get permission. :)

Gotta love being a King.

Well not all Poles are the same. I married one 8 years ago that I met here. She moved here from Poland about 12 years go. She and her family are VERY Catholic. Iam Catholic as well and not we are divorced. It happens.

I think MARRIAGE in what ever country is a close bond of two loving adults, we here in the west see to much divorce and would like to think that others may respect it, but i do understand that the east is slowly turning to the west.

Maybe thats why we have 600,000 Poles in the UK wanting a better life and some money to take home to their families. I think you our happy in the marriage and try to make it work, or you leave it and walk away from hurting each other.

Yeah...its great being a you can commit adultery AND father endless bastard heirs this not the case?

Someone correct me if I'm wrong?

English versions of religion are based on one thing and one thing only......getting an heir to a throne.....and we thought other religions were based on bunkum?

There is something I forgot to add earlier... I have noticed a lot of Polish couples who have split up after a few months in the UK. I actually mentioned it to one person who had just informed me they had split up with their bf. She added she knew a lot of couples who did split up.

In the words of another lady (who has been here for 2 years and came with a husband) 'I dont need him any longer'. They both worked here and did quite well so she felt 'able' to leave him and be by herself. She also said she was free of all the cleaning and cooking for both of them.

Wolfie - not at all. I do not think it is up to nationality but to an individual. It would be difficult to generalise a 38 mln crowd. Like in every other country there are some goodens and baddies.

Don't forget that there was also a bonus to that transaction in the shape of churches money. Or maybe the divorce thing was the bonus? :( :)

If you are a christian Indian as so many are, than you have no problem, just ask the girl if she will marry you. If you are of diffrent religious followings you have to discuss the problem know what they say .....Love finds a way....

Wolfie, I am not from Poland (I just came to an international chat), but I would really like to "get myself done up" with an arranged wedding just like in India. Why bother with adventure - I am not much of a diversity fan after all... Well, I could be, but I don1t fancy that idea that much really...

Talking about Polish women, I caould not say how the hell they are so darn sexy. I wish women in my country would be like that - maybe you1 ve heard a lot about these women of ours, that they are so... and so... and so great... They are really not so hot as many German and Russians ones. And the overall appearance is one of frigidity and flatulent boring nature. But, anyhow, they like western guys - and, I also like western people (not guys, I don`t wanna be misunderstood, you understand) and, cheers, buddies!

You could not be more wrong if you tried. October to February covers 80% of the coldest months in Poland. Who gets married in - zero temps?
