The Greek and Omanis both have a very strong and ancient culture heritage. I choose the Greek culture because I knew a family that came from Greece and their cultural food was amazing. I have an unconditional love for international foods. My second culture of interest was the Omani culture because my mother went to Oman and absolutely fell in love with that country. When she came back, for a while, Oman was all she talked about so, I wanted to do research to get a hint of the fascination. In this paper I am going to discuss the Greek and Omani Cultures over a lifespan.
The first culture I will like to discuss is the Greek culture and traditions. The only thing I really noticed was that the gender differences dramatically changed over time, as with all cultures. Greek culture is not that different from our western culture. In older traditional Greek culture, when it came to labor, rural men and women shared agricultural tasks (everyculture.com). As the culture urbanized over time, the shared labor shifted. The women stayed home and the men went to work. This has altogether changed with the since open access to education involving childcare arrangements now have women constituting over 45 percent of the paid workforce (everyculture.com). The male-dominant differentiation changed. The family law of 1983 established legal gender equality in family, relationships and decision making (everyculture.com).
The common marriage in Greece is closely similar to our western culture. The only difference is the way in which the couple is married as far as the wedding ceremony. Marriage is considered the normal condition of adulthood and the average age of marriage is the late twenties for women and mid- thirties for men (everyculture.com). It is also very common for the elderly parents to join the household of one of their adult children, after marriage. The elderly parents also play a huge role in taking care of the children in the family (eveyculture.com)....
