I find that to be an overgeneralisation. I am sure that there are many wonderful and beautiful E. European women but at the same time, I know many old fashioned American women of Italian or Spanish heritage who are 100% focused on family life including hearth, home and husband.
Indeed - I know of many examples of "old-fashioned" women from the Pennsylvania Deuch stock, and you don't get much more American than that (they've been in this country for 250+ years). Too bad Linus isn't still on the site, to see your comment and engage you in discussion of it.
"O Cross of Christ, all-holy, thrice-blessed, and life-giving, instrument of the mystical rites of Zion, the holy Altar for the service of our Great Archpriest, the blessing - the weapon - the strength of priests, our pride, our consolation, the light in our hearts, our mind, and our steps"
Met. Meletios of Nikopolis & Preveza, from his ordination.
