I find that very few assyrian women are educated and its like they're waiting for a man to marry them so that they can be taken care of financially. Who's with me?


I'm with you on that, Diesel. But you know what scares me even more... when a GUY, does nothing with his life and goes for a girl that has a well off family.

Anyways, personally speaking... I can't see myself with a non-Assyrian. Nothing against any race. But I'd find it hard to make him understand my culture.

Let me just get down to the point. I want my kids speaking better Assyrian than I do, being active in Assyrian functions or organizations, supporting their church and helping their own people, if they don't... they get an Assyrian razelta from me and no chai & kilehcheh!

Well using this website as an example, I believe majority of the females here are educated, or in the midst of educating themselves...so by that alone you can see that our generation does not fall into the category of 'housewives only'. I don't know I just don't really agree with that, I don't doubt that there are women who are like that, but to say that so very few assyrian women are educated is really incorrect.

And as for what Honda_Racing_Gurl said, I think sometimes the selection gets so low that these women have no choice BUT to go for "bums"

Nore, there's only a couple females on this board, and not all of them sound educated (I won't name anyone... i don't wanna get ANNOYED ehm). That having been said, I know FOR A FACT that Toronto assyrians definitely fall short in academia so i dunno...

And 1 thing... why do those women have no choice but to go for bums?  :blink:

If a girl cant get a degree in law, medicine, acccounting, engineering, etc. then atleast she should have a BA in cooking, cleaning and taking care of her kids! :giggle:

You're going to base it on how they 'sound'?

Now come on.. that won't give you a legit stat.

_diesel_ I don't think you have been around long enough to make that judgement. There are quite a few females on the forums who have an education. I can speak for myself and say that I personally do, I'm an honours student and one of the top students in my program. I can see where you say that not all of the females sound educated, I know that at times you would think that I was 13 from some of my posts ( :beee: ), that doesn't mean im an idiot or lack an education, get it? I don't think you can legitimately judge someones intellect based on their AVN posts.

I was using the forum as an example. I know plenty of assyrian females who have graduated post-secondary or are in the middle of their post-secondary education.

About Toronto Assyrians lacking education, I can't say I disagree..but I think thats a totally different post.

As for the no choice comment...you just said yourself Toronto Assyrians 'fall short of academia' that basically answers it.

lol yea i think education is a very important factor in chosing who u wanna be with
It's all associated with conversation; how are you to converse with someone who doesn't have an education if you just spent your whole day cloning genes and doing western blots?

I went out with this girl once, she was gorgeous but really stupid... she was telling me how her friend got charged by her ex boyfriend etc etc etc.... that was like a 30 minute story.... I didn't know what to tell her afterwards... it didn't work out  :lol:

i would marry a non assyrian or chaldean i have no problem with that as long as he is a christian


How about a non-Christian? Not necessarily Muslim or whatever, but what about someone who isn't religious? Call it atheism, agnosticism, or whatever..

I just want to say that im from Toronto and im educated and almost all of my friends are educated or in the process of getting an education and your comments dont reflect all assyrians in Toronto. I bet not all the assyrians where u live have an education but that doesnt im gonna say everyone from that city has no education.

Hi Cuttie, I'm from Toronto and most assyrians in Toronto don't have an education. It's offtopic a bit, but it's true. most do not have an education and don't care for one

No..in my opinion it is not important enough. I don't want to spend years and years educating myself while my significant other spends years and years mastering the principles of blackjack or the mechanics of slot machines.

You made a comment about not being able to have a conversation (or at least a decent one) with a person, what kind of a relationship is built on a lack of communication...that is when arguments start happening and the less educated, more insecure partner starts to pick on things that are irrelevant thus causing them to be "too confrontational and antagonistic" :p
