Greek girl dating tony romo dating jessica simpson
The stories of Greek heroes’ infidelity and hanky panky are the stuff of legend. Jason, married to Medea and whose charms without which he could not have survived, still betrayed her by marrying an Athenian princess, quite younger.He knew full well that he was going against his vow that he would never cheat on her.Same theme with Theseus, who according to both literary and historical record was an arrogant jerk.He needed Ariadne’s help to get out of the labyrinth but when his use for her was done, he abandoned her, pregnant no less, on the island of Naxos after getting her drunk on the way back to Athens from Crete.I can safely say that both “feel” more Greek even if I had to become über-Greek so to speak in an effort to keep them from going “Greek lite” as I felt holding on to Greek culture extremely important.It was important for me that my daughters grow up Greek, but with all the benefits of feeling like empowered American women.While everyone assumes that Greek men will cheat, that is not the case for Greek women.
As a young girl I remember one of my father’s friends boasting,”I have had relations with hundreds of women.” I have stepped outside the Greek milieu and asked straight up Americans about what they thought of Greek men, “a–holes,” “proud” “immature”” shrewd” “good with money and business” but mostly arrogant immature “d—-“.
But the stuff of myth and legend is not far from the flesh and blood truth.
Let’s face it — Greek “boys” are spoiled, arrogant, and flagrantly unfaithful.
If only Zeus and Hera could have had marriage counseling and taken a seat on a pillowy cloud of a couch in some marriage counselor’s office.
Perhaps they could have been the archetypes of a mutually respectful and satisfying marriage.
