Very simple question. Is the Rosary in the Roman manner prayed in the WR?

The rosary practice is really up to the individual. (In the Orthodox tradition it depends if your priest or spiritual father recommends it to you)

I'm afraid I don't know. I pray it without the mysteries attached to it in the Roman Church, but I don't belong to a Western Orthodox parish...

I don't why it wouldn't be.  I know EO who pray the rosary.

It's my understanding that some WR will pray it more or less the same, and others state the mysteries but don't imagine them. There have been threads in the past that have gone into more depth on it than this one has so far.

We say/pray it the same way without some of the additions. For example, we do not use the Fatima prayer or the Luminous mysteries.
