So what are our Armenian women all about? Armenian women are beautiful and feminine. We value our looks to the extent that some of us may even spend an entire salary on outfits and accessories to ensure that we have the perfect look. We consider our appearance to be an integral part of who we are and always look our best when trying to find a suitable husband.
We are known to be very loyal and hardworking wives and make great mothers as well. We are also intelligent and proud.
Being great mothers and wives was instilled in us from a young age, and we are "very traditional when it comes to family and relationships." We have a very close-knit family community and we care for our children, often spoiling them a bit too much at times.
Christianity is an important part of our lives, with over 90% of us practicing Christians. Modern day Armenians are still encouraged by parents to marry a Christian man, whose parents consider their daughter's happiness to be important. There are, however, still Armenians in small villages outside the cities who will not accept that their daughters marry into another faith, and may even disown them. Divorce is not common in Armenia and women will do whatever it takes to stay in their marriage, as it means a lot to them and their families.
In the Armenian cities, women live a more modern life and have the freedom to live how they choose. Hence, the mentality of women residing in the cities differs vastly from those living in the villages, who do not necessarily approve of the modern lifestyle. Women in the cities of Armenia and across the world are, however, proud of their Armenian heritage and still possess many of the traditional family values.
