Gornji Milanovac, Serbia
After the long years of wishing and secretly hoping that they will finally get daughter-in-law, these days wishes came trough for felthy farmer Radic Tanaskovic(72) and his wife Dusanka. Their son Mico (36) brought in the house a bride Merita from Skadar, Albania, and with little luck, in a few month his brother Rados (44) will bring another bride in the house, Tonja (Tonya) a girl already spoken for him, also from Albania.
“My friend, our household is singing from joy since bride Merita came over doorstep! Anyone can say what they want, but we are overjoyed with Albanian Bride. She is getting along fine with our son, and she respects wife and me so much that it is embarrassing sometimes. She is first up in the morning, cocks coffee, and serve it first to me and my wife, than her brother-in-law and than her husband, she than does all the housework. When she finishes, she goes to work in the field. We dont allow her do fieldwork, we believe that those are not jobs for a bride, but she says that those are her duties. Nothing is hard for her.
Merita looks like our own girls looked like several decades ago, when they were all patriarchal brought-up.
I don't have a daughter, but i have got one. Merita is a help and relief for all the houseworks. She learned many things in her own house, and what she didn't knew, she asked me to teach her. true, she doesent speaks Serbian yet, but souls can understand each other!
Since Merita came in to the house, sun is shining brighter for us!
Her husband says:
“What could I have done other than go to Albania to look for a bride? My friend from the army, Artur, Albanian from Montenegro, came to visit me one day and saw that I'm still unmarried. He offered to help me, to bring a bride from Albania. He knows a nice and honorable girl from Skadar, and she is from nice Catholic family, and willing to marry a Serb Orthodox. My brother rados and I sat on the train and went to Albania, in the house of Marticanaj family. When her family graded me that I am good for her daughter, all was set.
There are more and more people that are coming to Merita and me asking her does she have a girlfriend or a cousin ready for marriage.
What, no pictures?
I wanted an Albanian girl but my wife said no.
I’m afraid to ask what a “felthy farmer” might me.
I’m thinking he should probably get his mind out of the gutter. Maybe the new Albanian girl will help.
“She is first up in the morning, cocks coffee, and serve it first to me”
no coffee for me thanks.
Sorry, a typo.
None of the pictures on this thread are of “field working” wives. “If you want to be happy for the rest of your life, never make..... da dee de dum da da do....”
Albania is 70% Muslim and 10% Catholic.
What percentage of Albanians are Catholic? I know Albania was predominantly Muslim, of course since Hoxha declared Albania as the world’s first officially “atheist state,” I’m not sure how much of a factor religion plays today in modern Albania 20 years after the end of Stalinist rule there.
10% and shrinking.
They are prone to leaving Albania due to the Muslim pressure. Allmost all Catholic Albanians left Kosovo (5% of Kosovo population)
OK, here you go.
And here's another.
They work in different fields.
My offer to the parents for their daughter is 3 goats and a donkey cart... okay, I’ll through in the donkey too!
Albanians are a strange people- the clan is the main political structure in much of the country outside of the cities. There are some Albanian clans that are mixed religion. The Catholic members of such a clan will happily take the side of their Muslim clan members over the Catholic members of another clan. The main Albanian national here, Skanderbeg, was a Catholic who led Albanian resistance to the Ottoman Empire.
Albanians aren't terribly religious, whether Muslim or Christian.
When I took the Albanian girl aside, to talk to her about her cleaning, she asked if she were in trouble. I replied that she wasn't, but that I couldn't take unfair advantage of her any more. I said I was giving her a $20/week allowance for what she did around the house (which put her on a more equal footing with the Ukranian girl), and after that, I didn't have to do a thing around the house! As soon as the last bite of dessert was lifted off my plate, the dish would be in the sink before I was done chewing!
