Georgian women unimpressed by Georgian men2010-08-20 10:58
Georgia is now facing a serious family crisis: this year the divorce rate has increased by 25 % as compared to 2008 and by 35% as compared to 2007. Why do Georgian women become less enthusiastic about "building their love" with hot Caucasian men despite assurances of the Georgian government on the country's prosperity? GeorgiaTimes has tried to understand genuine reasons of mass divorces in Georgia with sexologist Sergey Agarkov and psychologist Arthur Vetrov.
As it turns out, the reason for such a high divorce rate is not the family's narrow circumstances. On the whole, it's clear why: not many Georgian women have ever held considerable money amounts in their hands, so the saying "love makes a cottage a castle" has been perfectly realized in Georgia for centuries. Now women's discontent is boiling over, and the fair sex is putting suitcases of their genatsvales on the doorstep.
Georgian psychologists account this sad tendency for sexual frustration between spouses. By tradition, young people in Georgia often get married without having sex relations that help establish the tastes - personal and the partner's, get better knowledge of the potential fiancé and decide whether he's worth sharing marital bed for years to come. As it turns out, in former years Georgian women used to advocate preservation of the hearth and home and were reluctant to reveal true reasons of a rift in a relationship. Now the new generation openly admits that sex in Georgia exists and is little satisfying to young Georgian ladies.
But where is the seat of the trouble? Is it the USA bringing emancipation, feminism and the notion of "sexual harassment" to the Old World? Moral values are changing there too with Liberty Institute NGO and the like starting to operate in contradiction to ancient customs. Marriages in the traditional society, albeit created without love, are still solid, but now freedom comes: "I get married and I get divorced whenever I want to". This sounds alarming: there is only one explanation to that - physical aspects of marriage are now given priority over spiritual ones.
Sexologist Sergey Agarkov thinks that emancipation of women, sexual liberation too, is a global trend when at a certain stage a nation or an ethnos believes in an ability to become part of the pan-European space. According to him, a new current in a traditional culture can help create European mental and socio-cultural space:
