You will quickly realize that even if your husband thinks he loves you, it is really just taken for granted by him and his entire kin that you are one of his appendages.
There is a reason for the Greek tradition of stomping on your husbands feet during the wedding ceremony: success in this venture is said to guarantee a wife the upper hand throughout her marriage.
Illegality is so much a part of the system in Greece that if you own a business of your own, every 3 years the tax office (I call them the Tax Mafia) offers to let you pay a nice little sum (starting at around 3000 euros for small businesses) up front and thereby avoid being audited.
Those who refuse to pay the sum are audited, and 99% of the time they are fined a far greater sum for some small discrepancy found in their books.
Another lawyer I know, in his late 30s and married with children, doesnt even like his wife (and this is also not uncommon! Second, she comes from a "good" family, meaning that her existence as his wife will be beneficial both to his career and to his wealth, for Greek women are usually provided with property, the essential bargaining tool for a good marriage.
Home to the all important erotas (love, passion, romance) Greece is a land that comes alive at night, where no one whos anyone goes out before midnight, nor to bed before dawn. As a woman, I have come to the sad conclusion that there is little respect for women as people in Greece.
But money is to be spent, and those Greek men sure like to spend it on a pretty tourist!
Still driven by beliefs of the 19 century, most Greek men take for granted that they have far greater sexual needs than women, thereby excusing their extra-curricular activities.
This is not to say that women in Greece dont ever have affairs, but it is a rarer occurrence, and women must be far more discreet about it, for there is still nothing worse to the Greek man than to be cuckolded. A wife should accept her husbands infidelities with no complaint as long as he is discreet ("thereby showing her respect," Akis explains), but the husband will leave immediately upon learning of even one indiscretion on his wifes part that might make him a fool in the eyes of others.
