Patriarchy, the social system in which a male is the family head and primary authority, is still very much alive in Cyprus. So, while women work outside the home, it is usually expected that they will fulfill the traditional domestic roles of the housewife and the mother as well. Cypriot men are always trendy when it comes to clothing. They are well-mannered, and will always listen if you need someone to talk to. They are more expressive than most of Western men, but they are considered to be patient, stable, and obliging. Cypriots have very strong family bonds and men are used to being the providers so they make quite good husband material.
